Juventus' Gonzalo Higuain, Federico Bernardeschi injuries not serious - Allegri

Juventus secured local bragging rights with a narrow victory over Torino, but their mounting injury concerns deepened after Gonzalo Higuain's early withdrawal.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri played down fears about the severity of injuries suffered by Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi during the 1-0 Serie A win over Torino on Sunday.

Higuain was holding his left ankle and was substituted after just 15 minutes, with Bernardeschi coming on to replace him.

Bernardeschi was also replaced in added time, but Allegri said that neither player sustained a significant injury.

"Higuain received a bruise and we'll evaluate him," Allegri said following Juventus' 1-0 victory. "Bernardeschi left in the final stretch but there shouldn't be any problems.

"Starting Wednesday, we'll regroup with everyone available, but in any event, the team is feeling well and they showed it today."

A medical update from Juventus said Higuain had a contusion and trauma in the ankle while Bernardeschi reported some pain in his left knee.

Despite a ninth consecutive victory, Juventus remained one point behind Serie A leaders Napoli. They will host Atalanta in the league on Feb. 25 and in the second leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal three days later.

Following a game at Lazio on March 3, they will travel to London to face Tottenham Hotspur in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie, which stands at 2-2 on aggregate.

Information from Press Association was used in this report.
