It was feared that the 24-year-old had sustained a muscle tear but Juve say medical checks have cleared concerns of a major problem.

"The tests at J|Medical excluded any serious injuries in the affected area (the third distal of the right leg)," a club statement confirmed.

"However, in view of the short time since the injury, additional daily clinical monitoring, as well as additional checks will be required in the coming days."

De Sciglio is likely to be sidelined for Sunday's Serie A trip to Sassuolo out of precaution.
