Davide Frattesi, a regular impact substitute for Inter, remained on the bench for the entirety of Inter-Juventus.

Simone Inzaghi explained post-match that Frattesi felt an “issue” in warmup and that was why he did not feature in the match, as he usually is the first midfielder off the bench.

SkySport Italy’s Matteo Barzaghi confirmed on Monday that the Italian international suffered a muscle strain. The plan was to revisit Frattesi after training on Tuesday. If the discomfort was still there, only then would he undergo medical examinations to determine the severity of a potential injury.

On Tuesday, it was reported by Sky that Frattesi did not train and was indeed taken for medical checks. An official release from the club stated that Davide Frattesi had strained a muscle in his right thigh and that the midfielder would be reassessed in the coming days. As Inter is set to face Roma in just a few days, this rules out the 24-year-old for that match, and it has been reported that he is at risk to face Salernitana as well.

Davide Frattesi aims to be 100% fit to face Atlético Madrid in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday, February 20.
