Bad news for Juventus. La Vecchia Signora announced a lesion of the left adductor for Denis Zakaria (25), who had exams on Monday. “The expected recovery time is approximately 20 days”, specifies the Juve press release. He will notably miss the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League against Villarreal (1-1 in the first leg), scheduled for March 16 in Turin.
The Swiss midfielder was injured on Saturday during the Piedmontese club’s victory in Serie A at Empoli (3-2). Denis Zakaria has already played 5 games and scored a goal in his new colors since arriving from Borussia Mönchengladbach this winter for just under €9m.
