Barzagli suffers calf injury

Veteran defender Andrea Barzagli is expected to miss Juventus’ Serie A match against second-placed Sassuolo. The 37-year-old sustained the injury during a training session but initial test seem to exclude a lengthy recovery period for the former Italy international.

Barzagli joined the bianconeri from German side Wolfsburg in 2011 and has made 271 total appearances for Juventus while winning seven Serie A titles. Massimiliano Allegri’s side are currently top of Serie A with maximum points after three games as they look to win their eighth consecutive league title.
