TURIN, Italy (AP) — Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero has exited an Italian league match against Cesena after getting bloodied with a kick to the face.

Del Piero had only been on for six minutes when Cesena defender Marco Rossi appeared to land his boot near the 37-year-old forward's left eye in the 62nd minute Sunday.

After receiving brief medical attention on the pitch, Del Piero was carried off.

No more details were immediately available.
