Three weeks off. And goodbye derby. The downside after Torino’s precious victory against Sassuolo is the injury of Dennis Praet, who came out in the second half after an extension. The outcome of the instrumental tests the player underwent today confirmed his first negative impressions: the Belgian distracted the hamstring of his left thigh. He will also miss the matches with Lazio and Venice, before Juventus scheduled for 2 October at the Grande Torino stadium. He will return after the break in the championship, when the grenades are expected from the away match against Napoli.
Praet goes to fatten an infirmary already full of attackers, given that Zaza and Belotti have been out of order for some time: the former has not yet recovered from the knee problem he felt over a month ago, the Gallo instead still has pain in the fibula of the leg right after the blow against Fiorentina. Both aim for the match against Juventus. Verdi (muscle strain) and Izzo (blunt trauma to the calf) were also added last week.
