Roma forward Mattia Destro has suffered a knock to his ankle that makes him a doubt for Sunday's Serie A match against Chievo, the capital club indicated.

After scoring in the 3-0 Italian Cup win over Atalanta on Tuesday, Destro injured his left ankle and limped off.

A short statement on Roma's official Twitter account said: "tests show the forward has sustained bruising to his right thigh and left ankle".

Roma coach Zdenek Zeman has given no indication how long the knock may sideline the 21-year-old forward.
