Chiellini sidelined for Juventus with thigh injury
Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini will be out of action until the new year with a muscular injury.
Chiellini will miss at least three matches for the Turin giants, including Tuesday's Champions League showdown against Bayern Munich, before he is able to return.
The 25-year-old was injured in the dying minutes of Saturday's 2-1 triumph over rivals Inter Milan in the Derby d'Italia and tests have confirmed a strain in his right thigh.
Chiellini, who has been a pivotal player for Juve coach Ciro Ferrara this season, will be sidelined for 20 days.
