Roma's Under to miss Barcelona trip, Nainggolan included

ROME (Reuters) - AS Roma’s attacking midfielder Cengiz Under will miss Wednesday’s Champions League game at Barcelona because of injury, but Radja Nainggolan will make the trip, the Serie A club said on Monday.

Under, whose five league goals this season have all come since the winter break, suffered a thigh injury while he was with Turkey during the international week.

Nainggolan limped off during the first half of Roma’s 1-1 draw at Bologna on Saturday, but Roma said the combative Belgian had been included in the 21-man squad for the quarter-final first leg.
