January 29, 2016 - 4:17 pm

Juventus have confirmed that Mario Mandzukic and Kwadwo Asamoah will both be out through injury.

An official statement on the clubs website confirmed that both players had picked up injuries during Juve’s 3-0 rout of Inter Milan in Wednesdays Coppa Italia match.

The full statement reads:

Kwadwo Asamoah and Mario Mandzukic both underwent medical checks today after reporting injuries during Wednesday’s Coppa Italia triumph over Inter at Juventus Stadium.  

The Ghanaian midfielder has suffered a torn biceps femoris in his right thigh and is expected to be sidelined for two to three weeks.

Tests on Mandzukic meanwhile revealed a torn gemellus muscle, with the Croatian forward’s rehabilitation process estimated to last a month. 

Both players will miss games against Chievo, Genoa, Frosinone, Napoli, Bologna while Mandzukic will likely miss the first leg of Juve’s Champions League match against Bayern Munich and possibly the league game against Inter Milan.

      Hopefully Morata will begin to score again. We need him and Dybala on target against Bayern.

    So Dybala and Morata it is? Sucks, although i really liked Morata against Inter. Hopefully he can keep that form.

      Time to say to bye to Kwadwo. Make something before getting next to nothing further down the line and continuing to pay for his injuries and rehab while he’s not contributing to the team.

    Man Asamoah again, this blows.. And Mandzukic not fit for Bayern will also be a major blow if morata doesnt get to top form asap.

    Hopefully the upcoming games give him some goals and confidence
