Torino will be without full-back Cesare Bovo for a month after he suffered knee ligament damage.
The player went off in the opening minutes of Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Sampdoria when he badly sprained his knee.
Today the Granata medical staff confirmed Bovo has sprained the left knee with lesions to the ligaments.
“The defender is expected to be out for four weeks.”
Nikola Maksimovic also pulled out of international duty with Serbia because of an inflamed right thigh.
