Sensi’s leg injury will cause rotation headaches to Inzaghi as he looks to use his squad depth to give much-needed rest to the starters.

Gagliardini and Alexis Sanchez were named in the squad to face Real Madrid but their fitness status is still unknown.

Vidal, Vecino, Dumfries, and Correa are to play a bigger role this Sunday against Bologna.

Bologna is fully fit and has not reported any injuries or suspensions.
