Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has been ruled out for a month after injuring his thigh in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Chievo.

The 29-year-old had hoped to return as soon as Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Manchester City, but the Italian champions have confirmed he will instead miss 30 days of action after evaluating the problem.

Marchisio had already missed three weeks of action at the start of the season with another thigh problem and the Chievo game had been his first Serie A start of the campaign before he had to be replaced at half-time.

“Tests today have revealed a first to second grade tear of the midfielder’s right adductor longus muscle,” read the club’s statement.

“The prognosis for recovery is around 30 days.”

As well as the crunch clash with City, the Italy international is almost certain to miss fixtures against Genoa, Frosinone, Naples and Bologna in Serie A, as well as his side’s second Champions League tie against Sevilla.

Juventus, who are yet to win after three Serie A matches in 2015-16, are already without pre-season signing Sami Khedira through injury.
