With less than a week to go, Juventus’ injury problems continue to mount as goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny became the latest player ruled out of the opening game.

Juventus said on Monday that tests revealed Szczęsny had a “low-grade injury to the adductor longus muscle of the left thigh” and that he would be out for “about 20 days”.

Szczęsny, 32, complained of feeling unwell at the end of the first half of Sunday’s 4-0 loss to Atlético Madrid. He was one of a number of players substituted at half-time in that friendly.

Juventus were already without injured players Paul Pogba, Weston McKennie, Federico Chiesa and Kaio Jorge for Sunday’s Serie A game against Sassuolo as well as Moise Kean and Adrien Rabiot, who are suspended.
