Milan - Roma's battle to secure Serie A's second automatic Champions League spot looks to have suffered a blow after Gervinho was sidelined with a "minor hamstring strain".
A statement from the club said: "Gervinho underwent tests this morning which revealed he has a minor strain to his hamstring. The Ivorian has already begun treatment."
Roma did not say for how long the Ivorian striker would be sidelined, although several media outlets in Italy believe Gervinho's season could already be over.
