Serie A Player Status Updates – Round 3


Juventus:  Miralem Pjanic is fine after subbing off in the second half last week, Mattia De Sciglio might be able to make the squad list.

Napoli: Mario Rui is expected to recover from the little muscular problem he had against Milan, while Fabian Ruiz remains questionable due to muscle fatigue. Alex Meret (arm) is unlikely to play, but he is close to returning.

Roma:  Alessandro Florenzi suffered a knee trauma, but it is nothing major. He, Diego Perotti, still dealing with an ankle sprain, and Antonio Mirante, for some neck pain, have been ruled out for the Milan game.

Inter:  Sime Vrsaljko and Kwadwo Asamoah were both taken out against Torino because of ankle problems, but they avoided serious injuries. The availability of the Ghanaian is still in question for this week though.

Lazio: Jordan Lukaku (knee tendinopathy) and Valon Berisha (thigh strain) continue to be on the shelf, Luiz Felipe will return in a month.

Milan: Cristian Zapata and Riccardo Montolivo are not available for undisclosed problems, same for the long-term injured players Andrea Conti and Ivan Strinic.

Atalanta:  Marco Tumminello is working his way back from a knee inflammation and might make the team, while Josip Ilicic will take advantage of the break to heal from a mouth infection and re-gain the best condition. Rafael Toloi (hamstring) and José Palomino (foot), have been ruled out by Gian Piero Gasperini, Timothy Castagna has few stitches on his head, Duvan Zapata is fatigued. 

Fiorentina: Jordan Veretout will serve the final game of his suspension, while Kevin Mirallas is dealing with some muscle fatigue, but he has a chance to recover.

Torino: Cristian Ansaldi suffered a knee sprain with some ligament damage and he risks being out of action for six to eight weeks. Daniele Baselli is doubtful with a milder knee sprain.

Sampdoria:  Junior Tavares should be good to go after being sidelined by a bruised shoulder. Dennis Praet will return after the break.

Sassuolo: Marlon is suspended, Domenico Berardi has been practicing on his own for a couple of days for unspecified reasons. Filip Djuricic, Francesco Magnanelli and Federico Peluso have missed time with muscular ailments and are questionable in this round as well.

Genoa: Andrea Favilli is dealing with some muscular soreness, Stephane Omeonga and Koray Gunter got hurt in practice and their injuries have yet to be assessed. Sandro will come back after the break from a knee sprain.

Chievo: Fabrizio Cacciatore got pulled from the starting lineup at the last moment last week because of calf problem and will likely sit out another one. Perparim Hetemaj suffered a ribs fracture and will try to return in two weeks. Stefano Sorrentino is not completely healthy yet, but has a better chance to start. Bostjan Cesar has an aching meniscus.

Udinese: Rolando Mandragora was suspended for blaspheming. Antonin Barak skipped the last game because of muscle fatigue and he is still in doubt. Andrija Balic has hamstring pull, Bram Nuytinck is questionable for a knock.

Bologna: Angelo Da Costa is out for an ankle sprain, while there are no updates on the other injuries players since Rodrigo Palacio (hamstring), Neheun Paz (knee) and Godfred Donsah (knee) could be sidelined through the break.

Cagliari: Joao Pedro is suspended until September 16th. Lucas Castro missed the last game because of a hamstring pull, but he is fine, same for Artur Ionita after a nasty fall against Sassuolo. Luca Ceppitelli remains on the shelf.

Among Mattia Sprocati, Amato Ciciretti and Gervinho, who are dealing with some sort of muscle ailments, the only one who has a chance to recover is the former Roma. Jacopo Dezi will miss another month with back pain, while Alessandro Bastoni is almost back from a meniscus tear.

Frosinone: Emil Hallfredsson subbed off from the last game because of a thigh contracture, while Danilo Soddimo suffered a quad pull and they are both questionable, if not worse. Rai Vloet is working on his conditioning, but might at least be called up. Daniel Ciofani should be good to go after the break. Edoardo Goldaniga did not feature last week for a last-minute issue. Joel Campbell has been ruled out for an ankle injury.
