Juventus winger Federico Chiesa had picked up an injury in their 4-3 win against Roma.
The club confirmed the day after that the Italian ”felt a blunt trauma sprain to his left knee”, and the tests revealed that he had injured his anterior cruciate ligament, and surgery is imminent.
The injury would mean that Chiesa will no longer be part of the Juventus team for the rest of the season. He is also set to miss Italy’s World Cup playoffs which would be a huge blow for Italy’s World Cup hopes.
Italy will have to beat North Macedonia and Portugal to secure a spot in the major International tournament, and Chiesa’s presence would have been key to winning those games.
