There is good news for Roma, as tests show Diego Perotti’s muscular injury is not as bad as first feared.
It was believed he had suffered a thigh strain during this week’s individual training sessions.
However, Sky Sport Italia and Il Messaggero assure tests ruled out any lesions to the muscle.
This means rather than three weeks out, Perotti is likely to return within a few days.
Teammate Pau Lopez will be out of action for three weeks, as he suffered a microfracture to his wrist.
