Inter forward Joaquin Correa did not sustain a serious injury such as a tear or fracture in a clash with Bologna right-back Lorenzo De Silvestri during this evening’s Serie A match with the Rossoblu.

This is confirmed by the Nerazzurri on the official club Twitter account where it is stated that the Argentine only sustained a bruise during the match when he had to come off in discomfort, and as reported by

Correa made his first start for Inter since joining from Lazio over the summer, but his evening ended in disappointment despite the Nerazzurri’s emphatic win, with a clash with De Silvestri leaving him unable to continue.

There had been worries that the 27-year-old could have sustained a serious injury which would rule him out of selection in the squad for some time, but this has proved not to be the case.

Examinations performed after the match at the Humanitas clinic showed that the Argentine had suffered a blunt trauma but not any serious damage, though it remains to be seen how long he will be ruled out if the bruise needs to be recovered from.

The tweet reads: “Negative findings for @tucu_correa at the Humanitas Clinical Institute in Rozzano. Strong blunt trauma confirmed.”
