MILAN (Reuters) - Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi has suffered a thigh injury, the Serie A champions said, making him doubtful for their Champions League tie against Tottenham Hotspur next week.

The hard-tackling Frenchman, who has impressed since joining the Turin side from Paris St Germain in August, was taken off during the first half of Sunday’s 7-0 demolition of Sassuolo.

“Blaise Matuidi underwent tests which revealed a mild-medium tear to the flexor muscles in his left thigh,” Juventus said in a statement. “Further tests will be necessary to better ascertain the extent of his injury.”

Juventus visit Fiorentina for a Serie A match on Friday before hosting Tottenham on Feb 13.
