Romelu Lukaku has enjoyed a great start to the season, scoring seven goals in as many matches played with Inter, only failing to find the net against Lazio and Shakhtar. However, the player left the Champions League match against the Ukrainian side due to a physical issue and underwent tests today to identify the issue.
The exams showed that Lukaku is suffering from a muscle strain in his left thigh. His condition will be evaluated daily. This is unfortunate news for Antonio Conte, who has started Lukaku in every Serie A and Champions League match this season. They face Parma next in Serie A play, with a kickoff of 6pm on October 31. Lukaku is unlikely to play in that match. After Parma, Inter take on Real Madrid on November 3.
