Soccer: Juve lose Pirlo for a month (ANSA) - Turin, December 2 - Italian champions Juventus will be without Andrea Pirlo for a month after the inspirational playmaker took a knee knock in Sunday's 1-0 win over Udinese.

Pirlo will miss Juve's Champions League group showdown with Galatasaray on December 10, when they need a point to go into the last 16, and might still be unavailable for a top-of-the-table Serie A clash with AS Roma at the Juventus Stadium on January 6, Juve said.
