Juventus have suffered a serious setback in their quest to beat Bayern Munich into the Champions League quarter-finals after 18-goal striker Paulo Dybala was ruled out of Wednesday's game.

The 22-year-old Argentinian will not travel to the Allianz Arena, where Juve will bid to conquer Pep Guardiola's men following a 2-2 draw in the first leg, after injuring a calf muscle during training.

He joins midfielder Claudio Marchisio on the treatment table in Turin. The Bianconeri academy product, now 30, has also hurt a calf muscle and will be out of action for 20 days.

Dybala's exploits in Europe have been modest this term - he has scored only once, against Bayern - but in Serie A he has boosted Juve to the top of the table with 14 goals in 28 appearances.

The former Palermo forward's prolific form in the final third has also helped Massimiliano Allegri's side reach the Coppa Italia final.

In a statement published on their official website, Juve said Dybala's condition would be monitored ahead of Sunday's derby meeting with Torino.
