Juventus finished with 10 men in Sunday's defeat to Genoa after Dani Alves was unable to continue

Juventus defender Dani Alves broke his leg during his side's surprise 3-1 defeat by Genoa on Sunday.

The former Barcelona player, 33, suffered the injury after his side had made three substitutions and Juve finished with 10 men.

A club statement said Alves "fractured the fibula bone in his left leg".

The Brazil international completed a free transfer to reigning Italian champions Juventus in June after signing a two-year deal.

Defender Leonardo Bonucci, 29, also had to go off with an injury in the first half after "straining the flexor muscles in his thigh".
