TURIN – Ugly, ugly tile for Antonio Conte. It was not only a blow that taken by Andrea Pirlo in the first minute of Juventus-Udinese. The medical bulletin issued by Juventus does not bring good news, “2nd degree injury to the medial collateral ligament in his right knee.” Which means a stop of 30/40 days.

No Galatasaray-Juventus for the director and also very much at risk the head to head against Roma on January 6 (and that will probably be brought forward to 5). The assessments were made in the afternoon at the Clinic Fornaca Sessaint of Turin.

Pirlo will now have to observe a period of rest, then will begin his rehabilitation process, hoping to shorten the maximum recovery time. Juventus have had peeked calendar and have circled in red Cagliari vs Juventus on January 12 or Juventus-Sampdoria 19, which will mark the beginning of the second half of the season. Meanwhile, Conte will have to study something new for the midfield.
