Juventus medical department reported earlier today that Alessandro Del Pierro will be out of commission for up to 40 days due to an injury to the thigh muscle he suffered during a training session this morning.

Also side lined is Tiago who suffered an injury during the draw 0-0 against Bayern Munich. He will be out for about 20 days.

Thankfully their talent pool is deep enough to absorb these untimely injuries.

Juventus is currently in second place in Serie A with 14 points, the will play this weekend against Palermo. Believe it or not Sampdoria has been impressive and is currently in first place with 15 points.
