Di Maria injured after his Juve debut

Juventus striker Angel Di Maria suffered a thigh injury on his Serie A debut and will be sidelined for at least 10 days, the Turin club announced on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old Argentina international opened the scoring and netted another goal in Juve’s 3-0 win over Sassuolo on Monday before being taken off in the 66th minute.

“Di Maria underwent scans this morning (…) which revealed a low-grade injury to the adductor longus muscle of the left thigh,” Juventus said on their website.

“The extent of the injury will be reassessed in 10 days.”

Di Maria is expected to miss Juve’s next game at Sampdoria on Monday and could be out for AS Roma’s visit on August 27.
