Roma have Maicon concern

Douglas Maicon is set for a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury in Roma’s 2-0 win at Sampdoria on Wednesday.

The summer signing from Manchester City limped out of the Marassi encounter just 35 minutes into the tie.

The Brazilian will have tests on a suspected thigh strain that reportedly could see him ruled out of action for about three weeks.

The former Inter player had made a fine start to the season for the club who are currently top of the table after five wins from five games.
