Maicon Expected To Miss 3 Weeks


Roma’s newly acquired right-back Douglas Maicon is expected to miss 3 weeks with a left thigh strain. The Brazilian international came up limp in the 35th minute of Wednesday’s fixture versus Sampdoria and was replaced by Dodo. Vasilis Torosidis, who was out injured versus Sampdoria with a minor knock, is expected to recover in time for Sunday’s match versus Bologna and will be favorite to replace the Brazilian in the starting XI.
