Juventus must do without Traoré

Armand Traoré is out of Juventus's first two UEFA Europa League Group A games against KKS Lech Poznań and Manchester City FC after being sidelined for four weeks with a thigh injury.

Juventus left-back Armand Traoré will miss the first two games of their UEFA Europa League Group A campaign after suffering a left thigh injury.

The France Under-21 defender, who joined on loan from Arsenal FC just ahead of the transfer deadline, suffered the injury in training on Saturday and after sitting out Sunday's 3-3 draw with UC Sampdoria has now been ruled out for four weeks. Traoré, 20, will be absent for Thursday's home match against KKS Lech Poznań and the 30 September trip to Manchester City FC but should be back for the visit to FC Salzburg on 21 October.
