Juve's Martínez sidelined for a month

Jorge Martínez could miss Juventus's first two UEFA Europa League Group A matches because of a knee injury sustained during La Vecchia Signora's Serie A opener on Sunday.

Juventus will be without Jorge Martínez for up to a month after the winger suffered a left knee injury during the 1-0 defeat by AS Bari in the Bianconeri's opening Serie A fixture on Sunday.

The 27-year-old, who was introduced as a half-time replacement at the Stadio San Nicola, completed the match despite the injury because coach Luigi Delneri had already made three substitutions. The Uruguayan international will therefore miss the UEFA Europa League Group A game against KKS Lech Poznań in Turin on 16 September and is doubtful for the trip to Manchester City FC two weeks later. Martínez joined Juventus from Calcio Catania this summer.
