Bologna will be without star striker Federico Santander for at least three weeks after he dislocated his shoulder.
The accident forced him off during the opening stages of Sunday’s 2-0 win over Cagliari at the Stadio Dall’Ara.
He fell awkwardly on to his left shoulder and tests today confirmed it had been dislocated.
The injury is expected to keep ‘Ropero’ out of action for at least three weeks.
The 27-year-old has scored six Serie A goals in a Rossoblu jersey this season.
