Bosnia confirm Miralem Pjanic injury against Italy

Miralem Pjanic will sit out of Bosnia-Herzegovina’s clash with Liechtenstein on Monday after suffering an injury against Italy.

Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic suffered a thigh injury against Italy on Friday, Bosnia-Herzegovina have confirmed.

Pjanic has been in impressive form for Juve in Serie A this season but pulled up in a 1-1 draw against Lecce in October, returning in the Turin derby at the start of this month.

He looks to have suffered another setback after being substituted with 13 minutes remaining of a 3-0 home Euro 2020 qualifying defeat to Italy.

Bosnia confirmed on Saturday the 29-year-old would miss their trip to Liechtenstein on Monday, leaving Juve with a fitness concern ahead of a tough test against Atalanta next weekend.

“National team players Miralem Pjanic and Luka Menalo will miss the team’s next match against Liechtenstein due to injuries,” Bosnia’s statement read.

“Pjanic has an adductor injury, while Menalo has an ankle injury.”
