There’s bad news for Inter, as Marcelo Brozovic has been ruled out of tomorrow’s Serie A match against Sampdoria due to a muscular problem.
It kicks off on Sunday at 20.45 UK time (19.45 GMT), click here for a match preview.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Brozovic was diagnosed with a muscular injury that is expected to keep him out of action for seven to 10 days.
“Marcelo Brozovic underwent medical tests today at the Humanitas Research Hospital in Rozzano, with the player having noticed a problem in yesterday’s training session,” read a statement from Inter.
“The results showed a strain in the tibialis posterior muscle of his left leg. The player’s condition will be reassessed in the coming days.”
It’s a further blow for Antonio Conte and his midfield, because Stefano Sensi and Matias Vecino are already on the treatment table.
It leaves options fairly limited in midfield, so Roberto Gagliardini or Borja Valero could step in.
