Injury Concerns for Inter Milan: Marko Arnautovic Suffers Thigh Strain

The victory of Inter Milan over Bologna in Serie A yesterday night was overshadowed by injury to striker Marko Arnautovic, who sustained a left thigh strain during the match.

Marko Arnautovic Suffered The Injury

Italian news outlet FCInterNews reported Arnautovic’s injury, noting that further medical tests will be conducted tomorrow. Additionally, Carlos Augusto was forced off with a calf knock, adding to Inter’s injury worries.

Arnautovic, who came on as a substitute against his former club Bologna, endured a challenging return to the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara. Despite contributing to Inter’s win, the Austrian international faced late-game adversity when he went down holding his left thigh during stoppage time.

Initially, there was uncertainty about the nature of Arnautovic’s injury, with Bologna players suspecting gamesmanship. However, it became evident that the 34-year-old was genuinely injured and had to be substituted due to discomfort.

Inter’s medical staff diagnosed Arnautovic with a strain to the thigh flexor muscles in his right leg. This setback raises doubts about his availability for upcoming fixtures, notably, Inter’s crucial Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid.
