Palermo will be without inspirational captain Fabrizio Miccoli for Tuesday’s Serie A game against Napoli.
The forward has not been named in Bortolo Mutti’s 21-man squad because of concerns about his fitness.
“His absence is an important one, but he’s got a small problem and we don’t want to risk him ahead of the game against Chievo,” revealed Rosanero Vice-President Guglielmo Micciche to Radio CRC.
Palermo are still playing for their Serie A lives, although they are three places and seven points clear of the drop zone with only nine points left to play for this season.
Palermo squad: Brichetto, Tzorvas, Viviano; Aguirregaray, Labrin, Milanovic, Munoz, Pisano, Silvestre; Acquah, Bacinovic, Barreto, Bertolo, Donati, Ilicic, Migliaccio, Vazquez, Zahavi; Budan, Hernandez, Mehmeti.
