Roma will be without vice-captain Daniele De Rossi for two weeks after he sustained an injury against Inter.
The midfielder underwent a scan on Tuesday which confirmed a first degree strain of his right thigh muscle.
The Italian international will miss this week’s Coppa semi-final against Inter, as well as League games versus Bologna, Cagliari and possibly Sampdoria.
He should be available for selection again when the Giallorossi entertain Italian champions Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico.
