Keita Balde has been out for two months, may need another two weeks (return leg versus Eintracht Frankfurt)
It’s been basically two months since the last time Keita Balde stepped on the pitch. The Senegalese is dealing with a thigh injury that at first it didn’t seem to be too serious (initial prediction was only two weeks out of action) and his absence is proven to be massive for Luciano Spalletti and his coaching staff due to the situation of Mauro Icardi. Let’s not forget that Lautaro Martinez is playing nonstop and risking getting suspended for the number of yellow cards received both in Serie A and Europa League
According to Tuttosport, Keita started working with the ball yesterday and will continue going forward with the goal of being fully available in the return-leg against Eintracht.
