Former Roma and Italy midfielder Daniele De Rossi will miss Boca Juniors’ next game after suffering a thigh injury.
De Rossi has played four times for Boca since arriving on a free transfer in July, helping them to two wins and as many draws.
However, he will miss their next match against San Lorenzo on Saturday after it was confirmed he had suffered “a right hamstring strain”.
Despite that, the wording of the club’s tweet suggests he will be back after this weekend.
Boca lead the Argentine top flight with 14 points from their first six games and face arch-rivals River Plate in a two-legged Copa Libertadores semi-final next month.
