The paper reports that the Bianconeri’s medical staff have been left stumped by the type of problem Morata has sustained, and he is believed to have a problem with his abductor too.

Spanish striker Morata limped off after 22 minutes of Sunday’s 2-0 Serie A win against Genoa, and Tuttosport have today described the injury he sustained as ‘strange’.

The paper reports that the Bianconeri’s medical staff have been left stumped by the type of problem Morata has sustained, and he is believed to have a problem with his abductor too.

Today the forward will undergo tests in order to work out the length of his layoff.

Mandzukic’s injury is less serious according to Gazzetta dello Sport, as the Croatian was also forced to leave the pitch at the Stadio Ferraris on Sunday.

Gazzetta reports that the striker has a thigh problem and is almost guaranteed to miss out on Wednesday evening’s clash.

However, the good news for the Old Lady is that Lemina, who left the stadium on Sunday with an ice pack on his knee, appears to only have bruising and should recover in time.
