Tomovic taken to hospital
Nenad Tomovic was taken to hospital with head trauma, while Khouma Babacar and Stefan Savic have muscular problems. All three went off during Fiorentina's 1-0 victory away to Inter. Tomovic came off worse, as he was stretchered away with a neck brace after a horrible accidental collision. Rodrigo Palacio ran into the back of Tomovic's head, striking him with his shin-pad. Fiorentina medics released a statement confirming Tomovic sustained head trauma with possible whiplash. Babacar and Savic have muscular problems and their condition will be evaluated today.
Rami to miss Chievo match
Milan have confirmed that defender Adil Rami will miss Saturday's visit to Chievo. His injury is a blow to a Milan defence already without Cristian Zapata and Mattia De Sciglio. However, there was some good news for coach Filippo Inzaghi, with central defender Gabriel Paletta returning to training following a thigh problem.
Pirlo suffers calf injury
Juventus' bid to qualify for the quarter-finals of the 2014-15 Champions League took a big blow on Tuesday night, as veteran midfielder Andrea Pirlo was forced to leave the pitch during the first half of their match against Borussia Dortmund with a calfinjury. "We hope it's nothing serious with Pirlo. He came off with a calf problem and will be checked over tomorrow morning," said manager Massimiliano Allegri after the game.
Candreva limps off as celebration goes wrong
Lazio midfielder Antonio Candreva smacked his knee into a metal fence and had to go off injured after scoring the winner against Palermo as his goal celebration went horribly wrong. Not realising he was hurt, his team-mates leapt on top of him as he lay on the ground before he limped off injured shortly afterwards. "He's fine. He had to go and celebrate with the fans," Lazio coach Stefano Pioli said after their 2-1 win. "Fortunately, it doesn't appear to be anything serious. I prefer all injuries to be accompanied by a winning goal."
Goalkeeper Samir Handanovic is out of Inter's trip to Cagliari due to a bruised ankle. Handanovic sustained the injury during Thursday's 3-3 Europa League draw with Celtic, so Juan Pablo Carrizo takes over the gloves. Andrea Ranocchia may be rested due to a recurring knee problem, while Danilo D'Ambrosio and Marco Andreolli are available again.
Alex back in Milan squad
Alex is back in the Milan squad to face Cesena just days after undergoing surgery for a broken nose. The 33-year-old centre back broke his nose in the opening minutes of their 1-1 draw against Empoli last week and needed an operation to minimise the fracture.
Also in the squad are Montolivo, Bonera and Muntari. Lopez, Paletta and Mexes are all suspended, while the injury list includes El Shaarawy, De Sciglio, Zaccardo, Abate, Agazzi, Mastour and Armero.
Gonzalez out for five weeks
Torino will be without Alvaro Gonzalez for at least five weeks after he underwent knee surgery. He sprained his left knee during training on Tuesday and tests showed damage to the external meniscus ligament. The ex-Lazio winger moved to Torino over the January transfer window.
Juventus will likely be without Arturo Vidal for tomorrow's clash with Atalanta. The Chilean midfielder complained of an inflammation to the left adductor tendon during training today, and sat out the afternoon session.
Berlusconi not interested in Milan sale
Injury woes mounted for Milan as central defender Gabriel Paletta suffered a thigh injury. The Italian international, who only joined the club in the January transfer window, will miss at least a week. Meanwhile Brazilian defender Alex has undergone surgery for a broken nose. Milan are enduring another frustrating season and Sunday's 1-1 draw at home to Empoli leaves them 11th in Serie A.
Milan also issued a statement denying reports that Silvio Berlusconi's holding company, Fininvest, has any interest in selling a majority stake in the Serie A club. Reports in Thailand earlier in the day stated that Thai investor Bee Taechaubol had lodged an offer of one billion euros for a controlling stake of the seven-time European champions.
Miralem Pjanic is the latest player struck by the Roma flu epidemic and misses out on today's game with Parma. Pjanic had been named in the squad by coach Rudi Garcia, but woke up this morning feeling ill and has been left at home instead. The Bosnia international has been replaced by youth team player Tomas Vestenicky.
Francesco Totti was also ruled out by flu symptoms, while Douglas Maicon has a knee injury. Jose Holebas is suspended and long-term absentees are Victor Ibarbo, Juan Manuel Iturbe, Kevin Strootman and Leandro Castan.
Jonathan out for the season
Inter full-back Jonathan will miss the rest of the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. The 28-year-old has seen his campaign hampered by persistent knee complaints and decided that the best course of action was to have an operation on his troublesome joint. Jonathan will be out of action for three to four months, forcing the Brazilian to miss the rest of the season for the Nerazzurri.
Nagatomo set for six weeks on sidelines
Inter full back Yuto Nagatomo is set for an extended period on the treatment table following an injury obtained during the Nerazzurri's 3-0 victory over Palermo on Sunday evening. The 28-year-old will be out for at least six weeks after scans revealed that he has suffered a second degree hamstring strain in his right thigh. Nagatomo, who has played 10 times for Inter in Serie A this season, has a history of hamstring issues.
