Juventus midfield duo Cristiano Zanetti and Marco Marchionni face a month on the sidelines through injury.

The pair picked up muscle injuries during last week's pre-season friendly with Manchester United.

Bianconeri boss Claudio Ranieri is expected to be missing the duo for up to a month and it means they will miss this week's crucial UEFA Champions League qualifier with Artmedia.

Reports emanating from Italy suggest the injury problems could force Ranieri back into the transfer market before the close of the transfer window.
