Serie A Injury and Player Status Updates – Round 7


Juventus: no updates for the Italian Champions, as Mattia De Sciglio and Sami Khedira remain out with their hamstring strains, Douglas Costa is suspended and Leonardo Spinazzola is working his way back from an ACL tear.

Napoli: Alex Meret is not progressing as planned after an arm fracture and he is not expected to return before to the next break. Faouzi Ghoulam has been practicing regularly for few days, but he has not been called up yet.

Roma: Diego Perotti suffered another thigh injury and will miss the next two games. Kostas Manolas bowed out of the Frosinone game at half time due to some muscle fatigue, but he should gut it out.

Inter: Sime Vrsaljko has missed the last three games due to knee soreness and has been labelled day-to-day. He might be out until the next break.

Lazio: Luiz Felipe and Valon Berisha have returned from the muscular ailments that sidelined them at the beginning of the season. Stefan Radu has a chance to be available after suffering a thigh contracture. The only absentee should be Jordan Lukaku, who is still nursing some knee tendinopathy.

Milan: Gonzalo Higuain missed the Empoli game because of a thigh (flexor) problem. It is a minor ailment, an edema, and not a strain: he might be able to recover for the Sasssuolo match, but it is not a slam dunk. Mattia Caldara has a small groin problem that needs to be managed carefully.

Atalanta: Andrea Masiello and Arkadiusz Reca are questionable because of minor hamstring issues.

Fiorentina: no injuries in Stefano Pioli’s squad.

Torino: Iago Falque missed a game and a half due to a thigh strain, while Roberto Soriano pulled out in the warm-ups on Wednesday, but they could be both be at Walter Mazzarri’s disposal this weekend. Lorenzo De Silvestri is fatigued. 

Sampdoria: Gianluca Caprari missed the last two games because of a thigh problem and remains at risk, while Riccardo Saponara is unlikely to be back from his hamstring strain.

Sassuolo: Alfred Duncan skipped the last fixture, but it is unclear what is bothering him. Federico Peluso has missed all the previous games.

Genoa: Andrea Favilli has returned to the squad list on Wednesday, while Lisandro Lopez (hamstring) and Gianluca Lapadula (tibia) might remain on the shelf.

Chievo: Mattia Bani avoided a strain after subbing off early two games ago, but he could still miss some more time. Bostjan Cesar has been sidelined for a while by a bad meniscus. Nenad Tomovic bowed out of the last game due to an apparent muscular injury and the tests revealed a thigh strain, so he will be out for two or three games.

Udinese:  Andrija Balic was ruled out for the midweek round because of muscular ailment and is questionable for the weekend.

Bologna: Andrea Poli has missed a couple of matches because of a calf pull, Rodrigo Palacio few more with a hamstring strain and they are both at risk for the upcoming fixture. Nehuen Paz has returned from a knee sprain. Erick Pulgar will return one game early since he one the appeal against his suspension.

Cagliari: Luca Ceppitelli remains iffy because of calf strain and Charalampos Lykogiannis picked up a similar injury this week and will be out for up to a month.

SPAL: Jasmin Kurtic has fractured his elbow and will obviously be out for a while. Federico Viviani has missed time with a bruised calf.

Empoli: Afriyie Acquah suffered a hamstring strain last weekend and will miss a couple games, while Manuel Pasqual continues to be limited by an eye trauma.

Parma: Roberto Inglese got hurt in the Napoli game: he has an hematoma in his thigh, which needs to subside before they can better assess his injury. Alberto Grassi is dealing with a calf edema and recently switched rehab protocols because he was not improving. Jonathan Biabiany has been called up after a one-month absence. 

Frosinone: Raffaele Maiello is expected to be held out because of a calf edema, while Joaquin Ardaiz is trying to shake off a minor thigh injury. Rai Vloet is now available after skipping the first few weeks.
