Angel Di Maria leaves the pitch in TEARS after suffering an injury during the first-half loss to Juventus

Juventus star Angel Di Maria left the pitch in tears on Tuesday night after suffering a muscle injury in the Champions League.

The Argentine playmaker, who joined the Italian giants on a free transfer this summer, is now a huge doubt ahead of next month’s World Cup in Qatar.

Juventus’ chances of progressing to the knockout rounds of the Champions League were also shattered on Tuesday as Massimiliano Allegri’s side suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Israeli club Maccabi Haifa.

Di Maria clutched his leg after running for a pass in the 24th minute and clearly felt some discomfort in his right thigh.

Aware of the consequences, the 34-year-old shook his head towards the dugout and emotionally hobbled off the pitch, wiping his eyes with his shirt.

Omer Atzili complemented his opening goal in the seventh minute with Maccabi Haifa’s second before half-time, completing a dominant half for the home side.

Despite Juventus’ best efforts to react after the break, the hosts held on, marking the Italian club’s third defeat in the competition.

The disappointing result put even more pressure on coach Allegri, who had suffered a poor start to the season with Juventus.

The Serie A side sit eighth in the top flight with just three wins from nine games and now face a tough task to reach the knockout rounds of the Champions League.

While Paris Saint-Germain and Benfica lead Group H on eight points each, Juventus sit in third place with two games to go, five points adrift.
