Juve lose key defensive duo to injury

Serie A title contenders Juventus will be without key defenders Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini for their next two league matches because of injuries.

Barzagli looks set to miss three matches - including Wednesday's match against Bologna where victory would see them go level on points with leaders AC Milan - because of a torn calf muscle and is likely to return on 1 April against Napoli.

Chiellini has a less serious calf muscle tear and while certain to miss the Bologna and Genoa match on Sunday should be fit to line-up against Fiorentina the week after.
