Torino loses the striker for Venice and Juventus

Marko Pjaca stopped by a muscle problem: Ivan Juric fears to have him back only after the championship break

It rains in the wet indoors Torino. After Andrea Belotti, Simone Zaza and Dennis Praet, Ivan Juric he also loses another element of his offensive package: Marko Pjaca. The Croatian attacking midfielder, who with his goals allowed Torino to get 4 points in the last two games, stopped due to a muscle problem he suffered in the final against Lazio and for this he left the field a bit limping: there will be no Monday in the away match of Venezia but the fear is that he will also have to miss the derby with the Juventus, scheduled in exactly one week at the Olimpico Grande Torino.

Pjaca injury: muscle problem for the attacker

Pjaca had been in doubt until the end also for the match against Lazio due to a muscle fatigue that for days did not even allow him to train with his teammates: Juric recovered him at the very last minute (Thursday morning, a few hours before the kick-off of the match, the playmaker supported the last physicist getting the ok from the medical staff to play) and for this he started him from the bench, sending him on the field only for the quarter of an hour from end (a period of time that was still sufficient for Pjaca to score a goal and touch a second). Now it will be the instrumental tests that will tell if the number 11 can be in the derby or if he will return to the field later, the risk that Juric will arrive at the match against Juventus with the men counted in attack is really very high.
