Ghana's Sulley Muntari injures Juventus star Dybala ahead of Barcelona clash

Juventus star Paulo Dybala went off injured during his team's clash with Pescara on Saturday with Ghana ace Sulley Muntari causing the injury.

He was taken off in the 54th minute with his team 2-0 up in the Serie A battle.

Dybala suffered a hard tackle from Muntari and had to leave the field.

It seemed his pain was coming from his right ankle and coach Massimiliano Allegri took him off for Stefano Sturaro.

Muntari was also taken off by his club as a precautionary measure as he had already received a yellow card earlier in the game. A second caution from the referee could have been him sent off.

The Argentine forward was the hero against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final first leg in Turin, scoring twice as his team won 3-0.

This problem doesn't seem big enough to keep him out of the return at Camp Nou on Wednesday night.
