Double injury blow for Juve

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will be out of action for 10 days because of injury.

Buffon sustained a knock to his right thigh during Saturday's 1-0 triumph against Cagliari.

The Italy international will miss Wednesday's home game against Catania and Saturday's encounter at Sampdoria but should return in time for the Bianconeri's Champions League Group H encounter at Bate Borisov on September 30.

Alexander Manninger will replace Buffon in goal until then.

Juve also confirmed on Monday that French striker David Trezeguet will undergo knee surgery on Tuesday.

Trezeguet aggravated a long-standing knee injury in last week's Champions League victory against Zenit St Petersburg.

Juventus announced the striker will be sidelined for a minimum of three months.
