Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon a doubt for Borussia Monchengladbach clash

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon says that a calf problem could prevent him from facing Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has admitted that he is unsure whether he will be fit for Wednesday's Champions League group match against Borussia Monchengladbach.

The veteran stopper picked up a calf injury in Sunday's 0-0 draw with Inter Milan in Serie A, but did manage to play on for the entirety of the match.

Buffon will now undergo a scan ahead of Wednesday's match to determine whether he is fit to take part in Turin.

"I managed [the problem] for about 65 minutes, which is a good sign, but we'll see what the tests say. I don't know if I can recover but we have Neto, a very strong goalkeeper, who it's not fair to call a back-up," Buffon told Rai Sport.

Italian champions Juventus have collected six points from their first two group matches in the Champions League this season.
