THE BALL – The time out scheduled for Draxler (Benfica)

Julian Draxler is a safe bet for the reception at Juventus, scheduled for Tuesday, in Luz, in a match counting for the fifth round of the group stage of the Champions League.

The 29-year-old German winger suffered a muscle injury to the back of his left thigh 18 minutes after entering the derby, being one of the bets just after the break.

Draxler, on loan from PSG, is expected to be out of competition for at least two weeks so he may still have a chance to play again before the League is halted for the Qatar World Cup.
