Milan and Lazio Concerned with Three Stars Hurt in UCL

Christian Pulisic went down clutching the back of his left thigh in the final minutes of the PSG clash. He returned midweek after missing a game and a half because of a contracture. Coach Stefano Pioli tried to downplay the problem but didn’t hide the worry in his post-game remarks to Sky.

“It looks like a cramp, but it’s in the same area as the previous problem. We hope it’s really just that.”

Pulisic was replaced by Alessandro Florenzi as Milan bunkered up to protect their one-goal lead. The top backup of the American winger, Samuel Chukwueze, was back on the bench after sitting out multiple matches because of a thigh strain. While he was spotted warming up, he didn’t enter the contest due to its flow.

Pulisic will take some tests ahead of the next Serie A game versus Lecce. Lazio stars Luis Alberto and Mattia Zaccagni will do the same, with the Roma bout on the horizon. The latter subbed off due versus Feyenoord to a knee contusion, SOSFanta informs. The Spaniard didn’t bow out but finished the game with a heavy tape on his right thigh. He commented afterward (via Tuttomercatoweb).

“I’m fine because we won. I had a little flexor problem beforehand. Let’s see how these days go. I need to be 100 percent for the Derby. We know how much it means to us and our people.”
