Roma injuries update

As reported by Sky Sports Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio Roma’s Davide Astori could be out of action for up to three weeks.

Roma blitzed CSKA Moscow in their opening group game in the Champions League but center back Astori suffered a knee distortion which could see the new signing miss up to 4 league games and Roma’s away trip to Manchester City in  two weeks time. Along with Astori, Roma are also monitoring Juan Iturbe’s condition after the young Argentine was forced off the pitch last night with a muscular problem in his upper thigh.

Training this morning commenced without Castan, Astori and Iturbe who are all now beginning recovery work.
