Burdisso to miss Genoa opener

Genoa will be without Nicolas Burdisso for the start of the season after he suffered a thigh strain.

The ex-Inter and Roma defender played in the friendly with Bastia over the weekend and has been diagnosed with a strain.

He will be out of action for around a month, so Burdisso won’t be ready for the Serie A season opener.

He should be ready for Week 2 against Fiorentina on September 14.
