Roma injury crisis in Barcelona

Roma risk losing Radja Nainggolan, Cengiz Under and Lorenzo Pellegrini for the Champions League trip to Barcelona.

The first leg of the quarter-final is on Wednesday at Camp Nou.

Nainggolan limped off during Saturday’s 1-1 Serie A draw at Bologna with a muscular issue.

According to the latest reports from Il Tempo, ‘Ninja’ initially received a knock to the back of the right leg and tried to run it off, but eventually gave up and asked to be substituted.

Tests will be performed today and tomorrow, but the Giallorossi hope it is just a bruise and not a muscular strain.

Those who saw the Belgium international walk out of the train station as the team arrived home on Saturday evening noted he did not appear to be limping.

Cengiz Under did not feature against Bologna because he returned from international duty with a muscular problem and that too requires tests.

The initial impression right now is that the Turkish talent won’t be fit to start on Wednesday.

Pellegrini also skipped the Stadio Dall’Ara after injuring his calf while playing for Italy against England and again remains in doubt.
