Federico Mattiello (Chievo) suffers horror injury v Roma [videos]

The Serie A match between Chievo and Roma featured a horrible injury on Sunday.

Chievo and Roma were drawing 0-0 with 19 minutes played when Federico Mattiello went into a 50-50 challenge with Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan.

Mattiello challenged for the ball and trod on it, which may have caused Nainggolan to go through him.

The 19-year-old Italian Chievo midfielder, who had made just two appearances this season, looks set for a very lengthy absence after this broken leg.

Get well soon Federico Mattiello.
