Roma Star Set to Be Late Call for Upcoming Milan Bout

Paulo Dybala has avoided an adductor strain that would have knocked him out for multiple weeks, but he’s at serious risk of sitting out Friday’s match against Milan. La Joya subbed out in the second half of the Verona game while his team was trailing.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, he’s unlikely to be risked versus the Rossoneri to avoid more serious injuries. He’s day-to-day, and his presence hasn’t been ruled out altogether.

Dybala made his seasonal debut against the Scaligeri after missing the opener due to a suspension. He was booked early for diving and didn’t have a great showing. He sat out some summer friendlies because of a minor groin problem.

While there’s a glimmer of hope concerning the attacker, Renato Sanches won’t be available against Milan. He picked up a small thigh lesion and will not be rushed back, as José Mourinho implied in the last pre-game presser. He’ll return after the international break.

Our Take on Dybala

If he was healthy all the time, Juventus wouldn’t have waffled on handing him a big contract, and he wouldn’t be at Roma in the first place, as the Special One candidly admitted. There’s no magic wand to fix his recurring injury woes. The only solution is to sign more high-caliber strikers so as to not feel his absence too much.
