Tests done on the Germany international showed Gomez has a sprained right knee and has partial lesion of the collateral medial ligament.

Gomez will undergo further examinations later this week once the swelling subsides to confirm the recovery time.

"I am worried about Gomez even though I don't think it is a very serious injury," Della Valle said on the club's official website.

Gomez, who joined the Tuscan outfit on a 20million euros transfer deal from Bayern Munich this summer, is expected to be out of action for at least six weeks.

Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella also lost Juan Cuadrado to injury in Sunday's game.

The Colombian winger dislocated his shoulder and will be on the sidelines for two weeks.

"It felt as though we were cursed in this game," Della Valle said."I am sorry that Cuadrado got hurt.

"We hope to recover both players as soon as possible."

Fiorentina host Portuguese side Pacos Ferreira on Thursday in their Europa League Group E opener before travelling to Bergamo to face Atalanta this weekend.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
