Roma Cautiously Optimistic About Latest Dybala Injury

Roma are holding their breath after Paulo Dybala went down in a heap against Fiorentina. The situation might not be as severe as it initially surmised. La Joya reassured the fans outside the stadium after the game, Sportitalia informs.

“I’m fine and better than expected, but let’s wait until tomorrow.”

The Argentine left the match in the first half after getting his leg trapped underneath him on a tackle, seemingly hurting his left thigh. According to Sky, there’s a chance his problem is minor. The Giallorossi also lost Sardar Azmoun, who might have suffered a calf strain.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Dybala has already missed 45 days this season due to two separate physical problems. He injured his adductors in late August and then sprained his MCL in early October. He was out for nearly one month following the second incident.

The Giallorossi will face Bologna next. They surely won’t have Romelu Lukaku and Nicola Zalewski, who were sent off against the Viola. The striker risks a multi-game ban for his high-legged tackle. Harsh punishments aren’t frequent when it comes to simple fouls, though. Leonardo Spinazzola was technically available but couldn’t play due to a thigh ailment.

Roma will be hoping Dybala recovers quickly to be available for the Napoli clash coming up in two weeks, which will have massive ramifications in the Champions League race. The former Juventus star has been highly impactful when healthy, recording 4 goals and 6 assists in 14 appearances across all competitions so far.
