Alessandro Del Piero has been ruled out of Juventus' clash against Arsenal on Tuesday with a leg injury.
The Serie A leaders travel to London to take on Arsene Wenger's in-form Gunners in the UEFA Champions League quarter finals this week, but will be without their talismanic playmaker.
The 31-year-old aggravated his left thigh muscle in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Roma and had to be substituted after just 16 minutes.
He will undergo further scans on Monday to determine the full extent of the injury, but coach Fabio Capello has already to decide not to risk him against Arsenal.
Juve's starting line-up is likely to comprise David Trezeguet and Zlatan Ibrahimovic up front, while Patrick Vieira is set for an emotional return to Highbury.
