Marchisio faces spell on the sidelines

By Football News



Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio will miss up to 10 days after picking up a hip injury during training.

The 27-year-old, who missed an open goal during his side's 2-1 loss to Lazio in the Coppa Italia earlier this week, faces a brief spell on the sidelines.

"Claudio Marchisio has undergone an MRI scan after taking a knock to his left hip during yesterday's training session in Vinovo," a statement on the club's website reads.

"The scan, carried out by Professor Carlo Faletti, ruled out any serious injuries and instead revealed a strain in the midfielder's obturator externus muscle.  

"Marchisio is expected to be out of action for between seven and 10 days."

The midfielder has made 18 Serie A appearances this season, netting four goals.
