Serie A Injury and Suspension Report – Round 38


Juventus: Blaise Matuidi and Federico Bernardeschi are suspended, while Joao Cancelo and Mario Mandzukic both fractured their nose in the same week and are unavailable for Sunday. Alex Sandro is dealing with a rib contusion. Douglas Costa (calf), Mattia Perin (shoulder) and Sami Khedira (knee) remain sidelined as expected. Cristiano Ronaldo will be rested, while Wojciech Szczesny has suffered a knee injury.

Napoli: Allan and Kalidou Koulibaly are disqualified. Amadou Diawara looked close to returning from a foot fracture for a pair of weeks, but he was again unable to make the squad list, like Adam Ounas that is banged up and David Ospina, who is still in Colombia. Mario Rui is out with an undisclosed injury. 

Atalanta: Hans Hateboer is banned, Rafael Toloi (ankle) and Marco Varnier (ACL) have been out of commission for a while.

Inter: Matteo Politano was able to play through his ankle injury last week and so there are no doubts about his availability in this one. Stefan De Vrij is poised to return from an adductor pull.

Milan: Lucas Paquetà will serve the final game of his suspension and, as it has been the case for few weeks, they will not be able to count on Ivan Strinic (ankle), Mattia Caldara (ACL), Giacomo Bonaventura (knee) and Davide Calabria (fibula).

Roma: Kostas Manolas missed the last game with an ankle ailment, but he is slated to return. Nicolò Zaniolo has a nagging calf problem but he gutted it out for a pair of matches and it will be no different here.

Torino: Cristian Ansaldi is expected to return after skipping one due a thigh pull, while Vittorio Parigini (thigh) and Koffi Djidji (knee) will miss the season finale.

Lazio: Thomas Strakosha (Achilles), Felipe Caicedo and Luis Alberto sat out the last fixture and will likely be held out again, the goalie is the one with better chances to recover. Luiz Felipe has picked up a muscular problem, while Lucas Leiva, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Patric could be spared too. Joaquin Correa is suspended.

Sampdoria: Joachim Andersen, Vid Belec and Nicola Murru remain sidelined.

Sassuolo: Stefano Sensi (hand) and Federico Peluso (sports hernia) remain out as they underwent surgery last week. Gianluca Scamacca is in Poland for the U-20 World Cup. Khouma Babacar and Mauricio Lemos (ankle) have been ruled out.

SPAL: Vasco Regini tore a meniscus in the left knee. Felipe (back) and Simone Missiroli (ribs) were out last week and are iffy for this one too. Pasquale Schiattarella, Alberto Paloschi and Lorenzo Dickmann are out with minor injuries.

Bologna: Nicola Sansone was a late scratch for Monday’s game due to calf problem and did not manage to recover. Andrea Poli, Simone Edera and Federico Mattiello will join him on the stands.

Cagliari: Leonardo Pavoletti and Alberto Cerri both suffered minor thigh injuries that might prevent them from playing on Sunday. Luca Ceppitelli missed a couple with a sore Achilles and he is unlikely to return. Luca Pellegrini is playing with U-20 Italy’s national team.

Parma: Gervinho (thigh) and Francisco Sierralta managed to shake off muscular issues. Roberto Inglese (ankle) and Luca Rigoni (knee) will not be able to play due to sprains. Luca Siligardi has been nicked up for a while. Nicolas Schiappacasse is with his national team in Poland. Alessandro Bastoni is out with an undiclosed issue.

Fiorentina: Kevin Mirallas leaved the last game early and might not be able to feature against Genoa.

Udinese: Sandro went under the knife to reduce an elbow fracture. Marvin Zeegelaar is suspended. Seko Fofana and Nicholas Opoku remain out of commission, while Antonin Barak has an outside chance to play few minutes after missing months due to back pain. Rodrigo De Paul and Jens Stryger Larsen will be rested.

Empoli: Rade Krunic suffered a thigh strain and will not be able to play against Inter, like Luca Antonelli (calf), Antonino La Gumina (knee), Kevin Diks (knee) and Lorenzo Polvani (knee), who have been out for quite some time.

Genoa: Giuseppe Pezzella was red carded last week. Darko Lazovic (calf) remains questionable, but there is a little more hope than last week. Lukas Lerager and Luca Mazzitelli are iffy.

Frosinone: Andrea Pinamonti is playing in the U-20 World Cup. Federico Viviani will be back in the squad list after a thigh strain, while Raman Chibsah (knee), Mirko Gori (ankle) and Bartosz Salamon (thigh) could skip another one and Luca Paganini is questionable due to a stomp.

Chievo: Federico Barba and Mariusz Stepinski are suspended, while Luca Rossettini, Stefano Sorrentino, Emanuele Giaccherini and Filip Djordjevic will be excluded once again due to a coach’s decision. Mattia Bani and Nenad Tomovic are banged up but available.
