Cagliari have lost Italian international defender Davide Astori for three months after he fractured his leg.
The player was stretchered off during this afternoon's 0-0 draw with Napoli following a collision with Ezequiel Lavezzi.
It has emerged that X-rays show a fractured fibula, although more tests are needed to ascertain the extent of the injury.
Astori is likely to be out of action for around three months.
However, it's hope he will be fully recovered and match fit for Italy's participation in Euro 2012.
