Francesco Totti could be out for the next month after Roma confirmed the player has suffered a hamstring problem.
The captain limped out of Friday’s 2-0 win over Napoli and tests this morning have confirmed muscle damage.
The outfit added that the 37-year-old would be re-examined in 10 days, but he will definitely miss the ties against Udinese and Chievo.
He also remains a doubt for the subsequent Serie A matches against Torino and Sassuolo.
