InjuriesAS Roma fear star player could miss Europa League final

AS Roma are fearing that star player Paulo Dybala could not recover from his injury in time to face Sevilla in the Europa League final.

  • Dybala could miss Europa League final
  • Medical staff focused on forward’s recovery
  • Roma could still finish fourth

What is the news?

Paulo Dybala has been struggling with an ankle injury for about a month and the Argentinian could be missing out on the biggest game of the season for Roma. According to Corriere Dello Sport, the AS Roma medical staff have started a new treatment on his ankle as they hope the 29-year-old will be fit in time to take part in the Europa League final on May 31.

The backstory

Dybala surprised friend and foe last summer by completing a move to AS Roma ahead of potential moves to the Premier League. The forward has been impressing for the Romans since joining, despite being haunted by injuries throughout the season. In 36 games across all competitions, Dybala has scored 16 goals and provided 8 assists. Due to his ankle injury, the Argentinian has missed Roma’s last two games against Bologna and Salernitana and Roma’s second leg battle with Bayer Leverkusen in de semi-final of the Europa League.

What next?

For Roma’s medical staff, it seems to be a race against time to get Dybala fit in time for the final against Sevilla. Before Roma will face the Spaniards, they will first play in Serie A against Fiorentina. The Romans will have to win that game to keep an eye on fourth place. Roma are currently four points behind AC Milan, who are fourth.
