Paulo Dybala flew to Barcelona to get a second opinion on his knee injury.
The Argentine picked up the knock while facing Barcelona in the Champions League on 10 January 2021.
Luckily, he won’t be needing surgery, as Pirlo explained, “For Paulo, we evaluate the best solution to make him available as soon as possible. Dybala is not at risk for an operation. He had a consultation and now we will see what the best treatment will be.
“The recovery time of Dybala has unfortunately been prolonged and we haven’t been able to get him back.”
Juventus face Hellas Verona next while they are third in the table nine points behind leaders, Inter Milan.
“It will be a very difficult and physical game. Juric plays very good football, made up of many one-on-one situations. We must be careful with their runs and play.
“They are doing well and then they have added players in the transfer market compared to the first leg. Therefore, a tough challenge awaits us. We can’t be surprised by their physical approach, knowing they play a similar style to Atalanta.
“We must be careful and know how to play for each other with quick exchanges and attack the space.”x`
