Juve defensive duo both break noses

MILAN - Juventus defenders Fabio Cannavaro and Zdenek Grygera (pictured) both broke noses in Sunday's 1-0 defeat at Chievo and will have to wear protective masks for the time being, the Serie A side said in a statement on Monday.

The Turin club, who have lost five of their last seven games and have been severely hampered by injuries this season, said the pair had undergone surgery and would rest for two days.

Fellow defender Giorgio Chiellini has already had to wear a mask this season after another break.
