Pellegrini to miss Napoli

Roma will reportedly be without Lorenzo Pellegrini for this weekend’s Napoli game, after he suffered a thigh injury on Italy duty.

The midfielder joined up with theAzzurri for a training camp at Coverciano, the first assignment for caretaker CT Luigi Di Biagio.

Today the squad won 10-0 in a friendly with Fiorentina’s youth team, but Pellegrini was sent home early with a thigh problem.

According to Sky, he has suffered a strain of his adductor muscle, and will therefore miss the trip to face league leaders Napoli on Saturday night.
