The Italian team Juventus suffers from many injuries in its ranks and on Saturday evening faced its counterpart Hellas Verona in the absence of six of its stars.
And Juventus is missing Paulo Dybala, Arthur Melo, Alvaro Morata, Juan Cuadrado, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci. The “Futbol Italia” site explained their situation and the expected date of their return.
Dybala suffered a knee injury against Sassuolo in January and was supposed to be absent for 15-20 days, but has not returned to the game since.
Earlier this week, Dybala traveled to Barcelona for a professional consultation with knee surgeon Ramon Cugat.
Andrea Pirlo, the team’s coach, said Dybala did not need surgery, but his recovery time was still uncertain.
As for Morata, he allegedly signed a contract with CMV and rested against Hellas Verona and Juventus hopes to be available against Porto in the second half of the 16th round of the Champions League.

Arthur suffered from calcification at the level of the diaphragm between the bones and still suffers, so he is not ready to play.
His physical condition is monitored daily by Juventus medical staff, and even if Pirlo needed him against Porto, it would not be easy to get the former Barcelona star back in time for the match.
Juan Cuadrado is recovering from a biceps muscle injury and may return to action next weekend when Juventus hosts Lazio at the Allianz Stadium.
The same goes for Leonardo Bonucci, who could be in the squad against Lazio and join Porto on March 9.
Giorgi Chiellini’s return is uncertain due to a leg injury, however the tests the Italian international player underwent ruled out a strong injury to the 36-year-old.
