Juventus playmaker Paul Pogba will be sidelined for at least eight weeks with a hamstring injury he picked up at the Westfalenstadion during his side’s 3-0 Champions League round of 16 second leg win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night.

After undergoing tests on Thursday, Juventus said in a statement that the 22-year-old French international had suffered “a grade two myotendinous junction tear of his biceps femoris and he is expected to return to competitive action within the next 50 days.”

Meaning he might only be available for the last few games of the campaign – Juve’s final Serie A fixture is scheduled for the weekend of May 30 and the Champions League final if the Italian giants get there is being played on June 6.

News of Pogba’s injury is a massive blow to Juventus who are currently 14 points clear at the top of Serie A, in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia and through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
