Kondogbia sidelined with flu
Geoffrey Kondogbia has a fever and is a doubt for Sunday's match against Roma at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. The French midfielder had aimed to return to the team after serving a suspension, but he suffered from flu-like symptoms. Jeison Murillo and Marcelo Brozovic underwent tests this week. A scan gave the Colombian the all clear, while the Croatian midfielder is recovering well from a fractured toe and could make the bench this weekend.
Napoli hit by Allan injury blow
Napoli will be without Allan for the immediate future after the midfielder sustained a groin injury during last weekend's clash with Chievo. The 26-year-old Brazilian underwent scans on Tuesday which diagnosed his injury and a statement on Napoli's official website read: "Today Allan underwent ultrasound exams which confirmed muscle distraction to the left adductor." Allan will definitely miss Saturday's Serie A match at home to Atalanta with the following weekend's trip to fellow high-flyers Roma also in doubt.

Inter coach Stefano Pioli will also be without star striker Mauro Icardi as the captain is suspended for kicking a ball at an official during last weekend's 1-0 defeat to Juventus. Pioli has named teenage striker Andrea Pinamonti in his 21-man squad, with Ivan Perisic banned and Marcelo Brozovic unavailable due to a broken toe.

I hope it's just some scar tissue that got stretched, but he'll have tests tomorrow," said Allegri.
