Roma Stars Unlikely to Make it for Upcoming Inter Tilt

Paulo Dybala will undergo more tests on his injured knee in the next couple of days. However, there’s not much hope he’ll be available for Sunday’s clash with Inter as initially hoped. The Argentine has barely practiced since suffering the injury. He’s already behind schedule to be present for the next Serie A game, Il Messaggero informs.

La Joya is feeling better since the swelling has subsided. Though, it’s highly unlikely he’ll be able to beat the standard timetable. He’s nursing an MCL sprain in his right knee, which he sustained on October 9th. He’ll likely miss a month as usual or a little less than that.

Rather than the Inter clash, Dybala is more realistically targeting November 12th’s Derby with Lazio for his return. If that’s the case, he’ll also skip the matches versus Slavia Prague and Lecce. Lorenzo Pellegrini has a similar target date since he needs 15/20 more days to recuperate from a thigh strain.

Chris Smalling has remained sidelined through the break due to a tricky thigh problem. He has logged two full training sessions in a row. He might be called up for Thursday’s Europa League contest and log a few minutes as a tune-up for the Nerazzurri encounter.

Evan N’Dicka subbed off versus Monza due to a knee contusion, while Serdar Azmoun finished the game with calf soreness, but it appears they avoided meaningful injuries.
