Injured Vlahovic out of Lecce game, says Allegri

Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic will miss Saturday’s Serie A match at Lecce as he has failed to recover from a groin strain, manager Massimiliano Allegri said.

The 22-year-old Serbian was substituted after 70 minutes in the 4-3 defeat by Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday.

“Dusan Vlahovic will not be available tomorrow as he didn’t recover from an adductor/groin strain,” Allegri told reporters.

Vlahovic has been vital for Juventus this season, scoring six goals and one assist in 10 Serie A appearances.

Manuel Locatelli will also be absent due to personal reasons, along with Federico Chiesa and Paul Pogba.

“Federico Chiesa and Paul Pogba will not be called up tomorrow and it’s impossible for them to be available on Wednesday night against Paris St Germain and a 99% chance that will not even be there against Inter (on Nov 6),” Allegri said.
