ROME, Jan 7 — Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala could be out for over a month after picking up a thigh injury in his side’s 1-0 win at Cagliari yesterday, putting his chances of facing Tottenham in the Champions League at risk.

The Italian champions revealed today that the Argentine international had suffered a “light-medium” injury to his right thigh, and said that how long he would have to spend on the sidelines would become clear in the coming days.

The Corriere dello Sport writes that he will be out for between 30 to 40 days, while the Gazzetta dello Sport says that Dybala is hoping for a layoff of “no more than a month”.
