Viti in, Ramsey & Atal out

Lucien Favre gave an update on his squad ahead of Thursday’s UEFA Europa Conference League game behind closed doors against Slovacko (kick-off 9pm CEST). “For Viti, it’s good, no problem,” said the coach of the Italy U21 international, who injured a shoulder against Troyes on Sunday (3-2).

“For Aaron [Ramsey], tomorrow comes a bit too soon, even if I still have to talk to him, the doctor and the fitness coach,” said the Swiss tactician. The Wales international missed the Troyes game with a thigh problem.

There was reassuring news of Youcef Atal, who came off early on Sunday: “Fortunately, it’s not serious. He has already been running this morning [Wednesday]. But tomorrow will, of course, be a bit too soon for him.”
