Romelu Lukaku has been ruled out of Inter Milan’s Champions League clash at Barcelona due to a thigh injury.
The Belgium international is in a fitness race to face Juventus.
Inter Milan boss confirmed: “Romelu didn’t travel with us because he’s got a slight problem with his quadriceps. It’s a problem he’s had for about 10 days now and one that he kept on mentioning, but tests have revealed that it’s nothing serious. We’re quite relaxed about it but didn’t want to risk him.”
The Serie A outfit have a 100% record in domestic league after six games. Next clash for the club will be against Juventus on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde named Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembele in his squad for Wednesday’s match, with both forwards declared fit after they took part in training on Tuesday.
