Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is a doubt for Roma’s trip to Catania this weekend, as he suffered a bruised knee during training.
The Italian international of Argentine origin accidentally collided with Nicolas Burdisso during a kick-about.
The medical staff will know more after tests on Thursday or Friday, but there are fears of a minor sprain as well as bruising to the right knee.
Roma visit Catania at the Stadio Massimino on Sunday. Osvaldo was only a substitute against Napoli last week after suffering from flu.
