Serie A Injury and Suspension Report – Round 28

Empoli v UC Sampdoria - Serie A

Juventus: none among Mattia De Sciglio (thigh), Andrea Barzagli (calf), Dougls Costa (quad, calf), Sami Khedira (heart) and Juan Cuadrado (knee) is expected back this week. The first one is the closest to recovering. Cristiano Ronaldo will be rested. 

Napoli: Lorenzo Insigne was scratched from the XI in Europa League due to a muscular problem in the warm-up. Vlad Chiriches subbed off for the same issue, while Amadou Diawara has a foot infraction: they have all been given a 20-day prognosis. Fabian Ruiz has the flu.

Milan: Cristian Zapata is back in the squad list after spending time on the mend with a thigh strain.

Inter: Ivan Perisic (thigh) played against Eintracht Frankfurt and therefore he has fully recovered. Radja Nainggolan (calf) was ruled out in advance, while Ivan Brozovic, who subbed off in Serie A last week, spent the night on the bench because of a minor thigh ailment. Nainggolan will not play the Derby, while Brozovic is on the right track. Joao Miranda broke his nose against SPAL and will be on the shelf this week.

Roma: Alessandro Florenzi is suspended. Nicolò Zaniolo bowed out of the last game for a calf/ankle problem, but he should be out there at least in limited capacity. Aleksandar Kolarov had an old scar in the thigh flare up and he is out. Cengiz Under (thigh), Kostas Manolas (calf), Lorenzo Pellegrini (thigh) and Daniele De Rossi (calf) remain sidelined due to strains.

Torino: no concerns for Walter Mazzarri.

Atalanta: Rafael Toloi might miss another one with a sore thigh tendon.

Lazio: Ciro Immobile is disqualified. Jordan Lukaku is out for the season after knee surgery to solve a tendinopathy that has forced him to sit for prolonged stretches both at the beginning of the season and in the last month. Wallace (thigh) and Valon Berisha (calf) are close to recuperating, but it might not happen this week.

Sampdoria: Jacopo Sala had a muscular hiccup this week, but he should be at his coach’s disposal. Riccardo Saponara subbed off last week due to a tendon problem, Gaston Ramirez due to a blow to the lower leg: they will not be available this week.

Alban Lafont is in the squad list but expected to sit another one due to an ankle sprain. Jordan Veretout is suspended.

Parma: Matteo Scozzarella is banned and they will probably not be able to count on Antonino Barillà for the second week in a row. Leo Stulac is out long-term with a severe calf strain.

Sassuolo: Mehdi Bourabia is disqualified. Francesco Magnanelli cracked a rib in the previous game and will be on the mend this week, like Enrico Brignola that is recovering from a hand fracture. Stefano Sensi should be a full go after sitting one. Rogerio will be sidelined by a knock.
