Rick Karsdorp nursing knee injury, to return versus Brighton

Andy Mattioli

Roma fullback Rick Karsdorp is still out after being forced to forfeit the match against Feyenoord.

The Dutchman was in fact forced to come off in the second half of Roma’s return leg with Feyenoord. Later on, Karsdorp did not feature in the Giallorossi’s win over Torino.

The reason for Karsdorp’s absence is a knee injury that has caused him to miss the last week of training.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Roma do not want to reaggravate the injury and prefer to keep him on the sidelines for a few more days.

Karsdorp is expected to return to Daniele De Rossi’s disposal for the first leg of the Europa League round of 16 with Brighton on 7 March.
