Maicon in doubt for Sampdoria

After having missed yesterday’s demolition at the hands of Bayern due to knee inflammation, Roma fullback Douglas Maicon looks to be at risk to also miss the match against Sampdoria.

According to Sky Italia, the Brazilian will undergo medical tests today at Trigoria, but early reports suggest that the former Inter-man will be rested for 7-10 days to reduce the swelling in his knee. This, however, could be a day-to-day situation depending on how his knee responds to treatment.
