Sampdoria could be without striker Eder for Sunday’s match with Roma, as he flew out to Brazil to deal with a family matter.
The former Empoli man was suddenly called away this morning and jetted out from Italy to Brazil due to personal reasons.
It now seems unlikely he will be ready to play on Sunday afternoon against Roma.
Angelo Palombo and Marcelo Estigarribia are also dealing with injury concerns.
