A torn thigh muscle could rule Aldo Duscher out of RC Deportivo La Coruña's meeting with Juventus FC.
Duscher appeared as a substitute in Sunday's Primera División win against Sevilla FC but was forced to limp off after 24 minutes having sustained a thigh injury. On closer examination, medical staff discovered a small tear to the 24-year-old Argentinian's left thigh muscle.
Race against time
The injury means that Duscher is struggling to be fit for Deportivo's Champions League first knockout round tie against Italian champions Juventus. The first leg will be played in Spain on 25 February, with the return at the Stadio Delle Alpi two weeks later.
