Pizarro breathes sigh of relief

David Pizarro's injury is less grave than first thought and Roma are confident that he will play against Lecce on Friday evening.

The Chilean playmaker came off at half-time against Parma on Sunday when Roma were 2-0 in the lead.

Following his enforced withdrawal, Roma conceded twice and ended up drawing 2-2.

Pizarro underwent a scan this morning to determine the extent of a muscle injury.

However, nothing appeared to be wrong and he returned to training this morning.
