Serie A Injury Report – Round 14


Juventus: Federico Bernardeschi is expected to be called up after shaking off an adductor problem, while Alex Sandro subbed off in Champions League because of a thigh issue that has not been disclosed yet, so he is questionable for the Fiorentina game. Sami Khedira (ankle) and Emre Can remain out for this week.

Napoli: Raul Albiol suffered a mild ankle sprain against Red Star Belgrade and he is at risk for the Monday game. After picking up the same injury, Amin Younes should be at the coach’s disposal, while Simone Verdi is set to skip another one, and likely few more, because his was more severe.

Inter: Radja Nainggolan bowed out of the Tottenham clash because of a minor muscular injury on top of the usual achy ankle and he is iffy for the Roma match. Stefan De Vrij is simply fatigue, so he could recover. Mauro Icardi was seen limping at the end of the game, but it was only a knock. Dalbert will be out a little longer with his calf strain and Sime Vrsaljko (thigh) should stay on the shelf too.

Lazio: Luis Alberto, Adam Marusic and Lucas Leiva are all questionable for Sunday because of muscular problems. Leiva missed the last game, while the other two got hurt this week. Only Marusic has a chance to recover. 

Milan: Gonzalo Higuain will serve the final game of his suspension. There will be no returns this week, but at least no new injuries for the Rossoneri. The closest one is Alessio Romagnoli (calf), while Mateo Musacchio, Lucas Biglia and Mattia Caldara are ways away.

Parma: Antonino Di Gaudio and Massimo Gobbi, both dealing with thigh strains, have practiced partially this week, so they have an outside shot at recovering. Federico Sierralta and Federico Dimarco remain sidelined.

Roma: Edin Dzeko and Stephan El Shaarawy underwent some exams for their injuries yesterday and the results should be announced today. They are rumoured to be set to be out for 20 days. They will not be available for the Inter game. Diego Perotti and Javier Pastore have trained with the rest of the group, so they have shaken off their calf injuries and should be in the squad list. Daniele De Rossi (knee) is out and Ante Coric picked up a calf ailment. Lorenzo Pellegrini is trying to return early from his injury even though he had already been ruled out by the coach. 

Sassuolo: Kevin-Prince Boateng suffered a pelvic floor muscle lesion and will miss a considerable amount of time as he will likely return after the break. He joins Jeremie Boga (tibia), Claud Adjapong (fibula) and Lorenzo Sernicola (ankle) on the disabled list.

Atalanta: Josip Ilicic was slapped with a two-match ban. Musa Barrow got laser eye surgery after getting hit by a ball in practice last week and will not be available again. Rafael Toloi has a thigh problem that could end up sidelining him.

Fiorentina: Giuseppe Pezzella is working his way back from a biceps femoris strain and should be out there on Saturday, Marko Pjaca has a chance to return after sitting one due to back spasms.

Torino: Daniele Baselli has a bruised knee but he should not miss time and Ola Aina should be able to come back after being on the mend because of a heel inflammation.

Sampdoria: Edgar Barreto is having trouble shaking off a thigh strain and he is slated to stay on the shelf. Gregoire Defrel has been banged up for weeks, while Riccardo Saponara hurt his ankle: they are questionable.

Cagliari: Leonardo Pavoletti subbed off against Torino, but his thigh problem is minor and he has a good chances for Sunday. Charalampos Lykogiannis has a sore calf. Simone Padoin (thigh) and Paolo Faragò (back) were out for the last one, but they have good chances for the next match.

Genoa:  Nicolas Spolli is again dealing with a thigh issue.

Spal: Francesco Vicari should be able to return from the adductor injury that held him out, while Lorenco Simic will miss time with an ankle sprain.

Udinese: Kevin Lasagna was called up but did not play last week due to muscle fatigue, but he is feeling better now. Samir suffered an ankle sprain with ligament damage, so he will be out for a while. Antonin Barak has yet to resume practicing fully because of back pain. Molla Wague (calf) and Andrija Balic (thigh) are questionable.

Empoli: no new problems for Giuseppe Iachini’s squad. Alejandro Rodriguez and Lorenzo Polvani are working their way back from ACL tears.

Bologna:  Blerin Dzemaili has a bruised knee that will sideline him this week.

Frosinone: Camillo Ciano was called up but was left on the stands against Inter because of a thigh strain and he is not fully healthy yet. Danilo Soddimo was out last week with muscle fatigue, but should be good to go. Marco Capuano has a sore calf. Emil Halfredsson is still on the mend because of knee tendinopathy.

Chievo: Emanuele Giaccherini, Manuel Pucciarelli (knee), Nicola Rigoni, Nenad Tomovic (thigh) and Pawel Jaroszynski missed the last game and are on the wrong side of questionable for the upcoming one. Giaccherini could return while all the others are expected to remain out.
