Alessandro Del Piero could miss Juventus' trip to face Arsenal at Highbury.
Alessandro Del Piero could miss Juventus' trip to face Arsenal at Highbury on Tuesday due to a leg injury.
Del Piero lasted just 15 minutes of Juve's draw with Roma on Saturday.
The forward will undergo scans later on Sunday, but the signs are suggesting the Italian will be kept on the sidelines as his team-mates face Arsenal.
"I don't think it is too grave," said Del Piero. "It's a pity because I had only just recovered from another injury."
Juve coach Fabio Capello is aware his players face a mighty task at Highbury, with the fact The Gunners did not play at the weekend prominent in his thoughts.
"We spent a lot of energy against Roma, whilst Arsenal didn't play," said Capello.
"In London it will be hard."
