Rome: Italian first division soccer league side Juventus will be without key defenders Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini for their next two league matches because of injuries, the club announced.

Barzagli looks set to miss three matches including Wednesday`s match against Bologna where victory would see them go level on points with leaders AC Milan. He will be out due to a torn calf muscle and is likely to return April 1 against Napoli.

Chiellini has a less serious calf muscle tear and while certain to miss the Bologna and Genoa match Sunday should be fit to line-up against Fiorentina the week after.
