Paul Pogba has scored seven goals in 22 Serie A appearances this season

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is set to miss the Champions League quarter-finals after injuring his hamstring against Borussia Dortmund.

Pogba, 22, limped off in the first half of Juve's 3-0 win on Wednesday and has been ruled out for 50 days.

The former Manchester United midfielder will also miss France's internationals against Brazil and Denmark.

Juve are 14 points clear at the top of Serie A and are closing in on a fourth straight title.

If Pogba returns on schedule, he would be fit for the final three league games of the season and the second leg of a Champions League semi-final - should Juve reach that stage.

The draw for the quarter-finals of the competition takes place on Friday.
