Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero is expected to be out of action for between up to four weeks after picking up an injury during the club’s Champions League defeat to Deportivo La Coruna.

Del Piero lasted just 7 minutes of Tuesday’s game before hobbling off the pitch with a pulled right calf muscle.

A similar injury to the left calf in September kept the Italy international out of first team action for almost two months.
