Juventus winger Federico Bernardeschi will miss the crucial Champions League clash with ​Tottenham in the round of 32 after picking up a fresh injury last week.

The 24-year-old picked up suspected knee ligament damage during Juve’s ​Serie A win over Torino, with forward Gonzalo Higuain also suffering an ankle knock.

"Bernardeschi will be revaluated in 20 days," Juve boss Max Allegri told a press conference.

"If by that time the conservative treatment has achieved results, good, otherwise we'll have to decide whether to operate or not."

Allegri added: "Higuain hasn't trained since (Torino) and only worked separately from the squad, so it's very unlikely he'll be able to play tomorrow."

​Juventus will travel to Wembley on March 7th having already been held to a 2-2 draw in Turin last week.


With Spurs having scored two away goals, Juve will do everything in their power to keep a clean sheet or their qualification chances could all but disappear.

Paulo Dybala also made his return after suffering a thigh strain, but only came off the bench against Torino.


"It's unthinkable that Dybala could be ready after 40-45 days out to play 90 minutes. He played around half-a-hour against Torino, so it's about finding the right fitness levels in a decisive moment of the season.

"Tomorrow we’ll certainly start Matuidi and Miralem Pjanic, then we'll see between Stefano Sturaro, Claudio Marchisio or Rodrigo Bentancur.
