Napoli centre-back Alessandro Gamberini is likely to miss the Partenopei's clash with Juventus next week after picking up an ankle injury.
The 31-year-old limped off in the defeat to Viktoria Plzen in the Europa League on Thursday, and medical reports this evening have confirmed that the Italy international has picked up a knock that will leave him sidelined for at least 10 days.
He will therefore certainly miss the match with Udinese on Monday, and will be in a race against time to be fit for the top-of-the-table clash with the Bianconeri.
Gamberini has been virtually ever-present for Walter Mazzarri's side this term, playing in 20 League games so far.
