Blasi blow for Pescara

Bad news for Pescara, as midfielder Manuele Blasi will be out of action for the last two months, while Juan Fernando Quintero is not back in training yet.

Blasi limped off during the 2-0 win over Parma on Sunday and tests have confirmed the worst hypothesis.

He has suffered a lesion to the right thigh muscle and will be out of action for around two months.

It is a heavy blow for the club, as Blasi was one of their most experienced players and they take on Juventus on Saturday evening.

Meanwhile, Quintero has been released from hospital after he fainted during a training session on Tuesday.

The Colombian international may have had an allergic reaction and underwent a series of tests.

He rested today, but should be back in training tomorrow.
