Dzeko Sidelined with Double Cheekbone Fracture.

Edin Dzeko is set to miss Roma’s trip to Sampdoria with a double fracture of the cheekbone, according to facial surgeon Professor Bruno Pesucci.

Pesucci is a member of the Italian Society of Maxillofacial Surgery, the European Society of CMF, the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery and the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery.

Dzeko sustained the injury in Roma’s 1-1 draw at home against Cagliari on October 6, ruling him out of international duty for Bosnia-Herzegovina in their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Finland and Greece.

Pesucci revealed that the 33-year-old’s injury is worse than first thought and would not be able to return until October 24 when Roma face Borussia Monchengladbach in Europe.
