Juventus have been handed a boost with the news Giorgio Chiellini should be fit for their UEFA Champions League tie with Chelsea.
The Italy international, who was voted Serie A's defender of the year in 2008, suffered a thigh injury in Saturday's 3-2 home defeat by Cagliari.
But Juve have confirmed the 24-year-old is expected to be available for the first leg of the last-16 tie on February 25.
"The prognosis is for him to return to action in 15-20 days, therefore Giorgio should be ready just in time for the first leg with Chelsea," read a club statement.
However, midfielder Cristiano Zanetti will be out for up to 10 weeks with a hamstring injury having only just returned from a similar problem.
