Ünder to return against Frosinone, Schick and Karsdorp remain out


Il Tempo (Schito): Roma’s injured list is slowly starting to lessen just as the Giallorossi’s calendar begins to fill-up. This weekend they’ll face Frosinone then there’s the Derby on 2 March, followed by the return leg of the Champions League knockout stage against Porto at the Estádio do Dragão, which will at least partially define the evaluation of the season. The first to return amongst the group of those injured – Ünder, Schick and Karsdorp – will be the Turkish winger. The muscle problem that has kept him off the pitch for a month seems to be behind him, as Ünder did individual work on the pitch for an entire week and will be ready for Frosinone.

It’s different, though, for Schick and Karsdorp. Therapy for the Dutchman has continued and the goal is to have him available for the Derby. Patrik Schick will need more, however — it will be almost impossible to see him on the pitch against Lazio and it’s just as difficult to envision him being available for Porto. His situation will be monitored day by day.
