The striker was in the starting XI and lasted only a couple of minutes when Simone Romagnoli clambered all over him.
Shouldering the full weight of the defender seemed to be too much for Correa’s hamstring, as he crumpled to the ground clutching the back of his left thigh.
Tellingly, Correa was immediately distraught, as he evidently felt something twinge or even snap in his thigh.
He was in tears as the medical staff and teammates tried to console the Argentina international.
Alexis Sanchez was called straight away to come in at the fifth minute.
The only positive news is that Correa was able to walk off unsupported, but he was still crying as he hobbled away.
Correa has four goals and one assist in 19 competitive appearances for Inter so far this season.
