Serie A major scorer Dzeko out of critical Roma-Juve clash

Roma striker Edin Dzeko will miss Sunday's essential Serie A clash with table-toppers Juventus as a result of a calf injury.
The fixture represents Roma's last possibility to try to reel in Juve as Massimiliano Allegri's side will secure the Scudetto in the event the hosts fail to win at the Stadio Olimpico.
Bosnia international Dzeko's 27 league targets have helped the Giallorossi cling onto the coattails of the Turin giants all season, but a sixth-straight title appears around the cards for Juve, who are seven points above Roma with three games to play.
Even so, he won't play at the weekend immediately after selecting up a calf strain, which is anticipated to take ten days to heal.
Dzeko's absence could prompt Francesco Totti's elevation into Luciano Spalletti's plans, even though the coach has grown tired in current weeks more than incessant questioning about his use of the legendary forward, who's anticipated to retire at the finish of your season.
Right after the 40-year-old was an unused substitute in the 4-1 win more than AC Milan in the weekend, Spalletti stated: "We always end up talking regarding the exact same factor. This team deserves praise, but as an alternative we're generally talking about this and if I play him for just five minutes, I am disrespecting a legend, then if I do not introduce him, that's incorrect also."source:
