Report: Belotti back against Samp

Torino are reportedly certain Andrea Belotti will be back in time for the match against Sampdoria.

The Granata forward, who returned from two successful weeks with Italy, couldn’t participate in the 4-2 defeat to Inter on Sunday night, as he seems to have picked up a knee injury.

He sat on the bench for the full 90 minutes and DAZN reported he had picked up a knock in the same knee ha had trouble with after the Lazio match.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Torino aren’t concerned and expect the centre-forward to be back in contention for the match against the Blucerchiati on November 30.

The report reveals the player must deal with a stress discomfort in the knee and can’t be operated.

But the newspaper claims Torino are more concerned over Simone Verdi’s fitness, as the forward was brought off in the first half with an adductor problem and will carry out medical tests.
