Bologna defender Marios Oikonomou will be out of action for three to four weeks with a thigh strain.
The centre-back pulled out during the warm-up for last night’s 1-0 defeat to Inter and had been due to start the match.
He underwent tests today and they highlighted a Grade I lesion to the left femoral bicep.
The recovery time is expected to be around three to four weeks, confirmed the club medical staff.
