Abraham was substitute off the pitch at the end of Roma’s 2-0 defeat to Inter Milan on Tuesday. Initially suspected to be a muscle injury problem. But there are reports that the symptoms are not as severe as feared.
Sky Italia reports Abraham will undergo further testing on Thursday, however, preliminary estimates are not serious or severe. The England forward is expect to be available as an option for Sunday’s visit to Sassuolo’s Mape Stadium. The 24-year-old forward joined Roma from Chelsea for a massive 40 million euros last summer. By this season, he has scored 17 goals in 32 games in all competitions.
Milan Skriniar performed an extraordinary glancing header clearance off the line after Zaniolo had rounded Handanovic and curled a shot at goal from a tight angle.
But Inter nerves were settled in the 68th minute. When Sanchez found space on the edge of the box to unleash a missile of a finish.
“The guys did very well because it wasn’t a simple match,” said Inter coach Simone Inzaghi.
“Roma have quality and a great squad, but we deserved to reach the semi-final, knowing that we are coming off a big setback. To organise a game like this after two-and-a-half days wasn’t easy.” (Reporting by Alasdair Mackenzie Editing by Christian Radnedge and Toby Davis)
