Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi is an injury doubt for next week's Champions League last-16 tie against Tottenham Hotspur.

Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi is an injury doubt for next week's Champions League last-16 tie against Tottenham Hotspur.

The 30-year-old suffered a thigh strain during the Italian outfit's 7-0 thumping over Sassuolo on Sunday.

In a statement, Juve did not give a definitive timeline for recovery, instead claiming: "More tests are needed to better evaluate for how long he will be out."

The Serie A giants, who are on a seven-game winning league run, take on Tottenham in the first leg of their last-16 clash in Turin next Tuesday.

Spurs have proven that they can overcome tough opposition as they picked up four points from a possible six against Real Madrid in the group stage.
