Roma’s Federico Balzaretti is expected to miss the club’s next three games after being ruled out of action for 15 days.
The defender picked up a problem in training this week and scans have this morning highlighted a right thigh strain.
The summer signing from Palermo will thus be ruled out of games against Udinese, Parma in the midweek round and Palermo. He could be back for the derby against Lazio in Week 12.
