Lukaku doubt for Madrid UCL trip

The Nerazzurri striker went for an MRI scan after feeling discomfort during the goalless draw with Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday.

Inter confirmed the Belgium international has strained a muscle in his left thigh and that "his condition will be monitored daily".

Lukaku is expected to sit out the Serie A match against Parma on Saturday and is reportedly likely to miss next Wednesday's visit to the Spanish capital.

The news is a blow to head coach Antonio Conte, whose side have drawn each of their opening Group B matches with Borussia Monchengladbach and Shakhtar.

Lukaku has scored nine goals in 11 appearances in all competitions this season.
