Benatia in doubt for Atalanta match

After a thrilling 3-1 victory in Sardinia, Roma will be without several players (Florenzi, Pjanic, Destro) on Saturday vs. Atalanta due to suspension, but there may be another name added to the list of unavailable players.

Mehdi Benatia was seen limping after the match and Roma’s medical staff confirmed that the Moroccan suffered a muscular injury in his left thigh. It is unknown how long Benatia will be out for but he will be re-evaluated in the next 1-2 days and will more than likely miss the match at home against Atalanta.
