Juventus have suffered a major blow with the news that Gianluigi Buffon faces two months out with injury.

Buffon suffered a dislocated shoulder after colliding with Milan playamker Kaka and will now miss Italy’s World Cup qualifiers, the Italian Super Cup game against Inter and Champions League matches as well as several Serie A games.

Juventus suffered a series of injuries against Milan in the annual Trofeo Berlusconi game on Sunday with Pavel Nedved sustaining a sprained ankle to join Giorgio Chiellini and Alessandro Birindelli on the sidelines.

Juventus are expected to buy short-term cover for Buffon, possibly on loan.
