Bad news for Roma, as Mattia Destro sprained his ankle and is likely to miss this weekend’s trip to Bologna.
The striker was on target in last night’s 2-1 Coppa Italia victory over Inter and hoped to finally find some consistency in his performances.
However, today Destro did not take part in training due to a sprained ankle and he is in doubt for Sunday’s Serie A match at the Stadio Dall’Ara.
Erik Lamela is suspended for that game, so Miralem Pjanic is likely to move up into the trident attack with Francesco Totti and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
Marquinhos is also dealing with a right ankle problem and underwent physiotherapy today, while Daniele De Rossi is out for at least another 10 days.
New signing Vasilis Torosidis had his first training session today and even scored a goal, although his international transfer has not come through yet from Olympiacos.
