Maicon out with thigh strain

Yet more injury worries for Inter, as Douglas Maicon picked up a thigh strain during the Derby d'Italia.

The Brazilian right-back played the whole 2-1 defeat to Juventus last night, but felt pain after the final whistle.

The official club website has released a statement confirming Maicon underwent tests with Professor Francesco Benazzo in Pavia.

Results confirmed a second-degree thigh strain in his left leg.

It is not clear how long Maicon will be out for, but an injury like this typically requires at least two to three weeks.

Inter players have suffered from a series of muscular problems throughout the campaign.
