Inter Sweat Over Diego Milito & Lucio Fitness

Diego Milito

The South American pair picked up thigh injuries yesterday and will undergo scans over the next 48 hours.

Inter moved top of the Serie A table last night thanks to a last-gasp 2-1 win over Udinese , but the success came at a price as striker Diego Milito and centre-back Lucio both limped off with thigh problems.

The Argentine hitman made way for Mario Balotelli just 25 minutes in after sustaining a thigh injury while trying to sprint for the ball, while the Brazilian defender left the pitch two minutes from time with a similar problem.

Sky Sport Italia claims that Lucio strained the adductor muscle in his thigh, but the Nerazzurri medical staff will get a clearer picture of the situation when the pair go in for further tests either today or tomorrow to assess the extent of the damage.

Milito and Lucio are now expected to scrap plans to travel to Argentina and Brazil respectively for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
