Juventus confirm that defender Patrice Evra will be sidelined for around a month with a hamstring injury.

Juventus defender Patrice Evra has been ruled out of action for around a month with a hamstring injury.

The Frenchman missed his side's 2-0 win over Palermo on Sunday after suffering the problem in training last week.

Evra, who joined Juve from Manchester United in the summer, is expected to be back to full fitness at the end of November.

"The Frenchman underwent medical tests earlier today which revealed a strain of the biceps femoris muscle in his left thigh, and he is estimated to return to action in 30 days," read an official statement from the club.

Evra has made six appearances in all competitions for Juventus so far this season.
