Dybala and Di Maria Not Ruled Out for Qatar World Cup

Paulo Dybala and Angel Di Maria will miss multiple matches because of their recent thigh injuries, but they have a decent chance of being available for the World Cup. The problem suffered by the veteran is less severe than the one of the Roma ace.

As per Corriere della Sera, La Joya completed the tests with an MRI yesterday. He had to wait because the swelling was too significant after the Lecce game, where he got hurt while taking a penalty kick. He has been diagnosed with a biceps femoris lesion that will cost him four-to-six weeks. While there are feeble hopes, he’s a long shot to play again for the Giallorossi in 2022, but he could do it for Argentina. He will undergo further evaluations in a fortnight to assess how the recovery is going.

Instead, Di Maria injured a different muscle than Dybala and should be back sooner. According to TyC Sport, he picked up a rectus femoris strain in the Maccabi Haifa fixture. He will be on the mend for 15-to-20 days.

Therefore, El Fideo should be able to feature in one of the final Juventus tilts of the year. The Roma star will make the provisional squad list of La Seleccion even if he doesn’t return before the break, Corriere dello Sport informs.

Our Take on Dybala and Di Maria

While it’s a sigh of relief for the two players, it’s a major blow to their teams. Roma lose their offensive leader and the most meaningful difference compared to last season’s squad in a time when other attackers are struggling. Instead, the latter’s stint in Turin is starting to look like a long tease since it’s his third injury already.
