THE BALL – Taarabt at risk (Benfica)


Adel Taarabt will be reassessed tomorrow, on the day the team returns to training after two days off, due to a physical problem in his right leg. The 31-year-old Moroccan midfielder complained to doctor Ricardo Antunes after completing 90 minutes of pain in his right leg in the groin area. The presence in the game with Moreirense, Saturday, of the second round, at Estádio da Luz, is not guaranteed.

Jorge Jesus realized, after the match with Famalicão, that Taarabt had finished the game injured. The Moroccan international was observed, still in Minho, by the medical team. And it seems that this will not be a serious problem.

All care is few and the complaints of the medium, one of the best in the field, may be related to fatigue.
