Juventus without Vučinić 'for a few weeks'

Juventus look set to be without Mirko Vučinić for both legs of their round of 32 tie against Trabzonspor AŞ after the striker picked up a knee injury in training on Thursday.

Juventus will be without Mirko Vučinić "for a few weeks" after the Montenegro striker twisted his right knee in training on Thursday.

The 30-year-old underwent a scan which ruled out ligament damage but revealed a "meniscus injury which will keep him out of action for a few weeks" according to a statement from the Bianconeri. Vučinić therefore looks likely to miss both legs of the UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie against Trabzonspor AŞ, taking place on 20 and 27 February.

The forward, who joined Juventus in 2011 from AS Roma and helped Antonio Conte's team to two consecutive Serie A titles, has been limited to just two league goals in nine appearances this season.
