Paulo Dybala left the pitch in tears not long after scoring a wonder goal for Juventus.
The Argentine international came off after 20 minutes with an injury during the Serie A game against Sampdoria.
This comes just days before a huge Champions League game against Chelsea at the Allianz Stadium.
Dybala will certainly be a huge miss for Massimiliano Allegri’s side
He opened the scoring in Juventus’ 3-2 victory on Sunday with an excellent finish.
After the ball was laid off to him on the edge of the box, he hit a vicious strike past the keeper into the bottom right corner.
His joy soon turned to anguish, as he was forced off the pitch, with tears in his eyes and his head in his hands.
The injury came after he closed down an opposition player with an outstretched leg to prevent a long-ranged pass, which led to him landing awkwardly.
As he limped down the tunnel with a thigh injury, some of his teammates came to console him.
This will cause him to miss the next two matches, while Alvaro Morata also picked up a knock which will see him absent against his former club on Wednesday.
