Genoa: Five more players have recovered

Genoa coach Rolando Maran has another five players back in action, having recovered from coronavirus ahead of the match against Inter.

The Grifoni have revealed Maran could welcome back Francesco Cassata, Domenico Criscito, Mattia Destro, Lukas Lerager and Davide Zappacosta to training ahead of a busy schedule, including the Coppa Italia next week.

But this weekend, the Rossoblu prepare to face Antonio Conte’s Inter, who are struggling with absentees for COVID-19 themselves.

Maran’s men have picked up four points from three games and lost 6-0 to Napoli on September 27, before announcing several cases of coronavirus in the squad – peaking at 22 positive cases among players and staff.

The situation meant the match against Torino had to be postponed and will be recovered on November 4, meaning the Grifoni will play five games before the next international break.
