Ambitious Napoli could be without Ezequiel Lavezzi for their next four Serie A games because of injury.
The Argentine international picked up a thigh muscle problem in his right leg during Sunday’s 3-1 home loss to Roma.
Lavezzi has undergone tests on the problem this morning and he’s expected to be out for at least a month.
The forward will miss this week’s game against Genoa, as well as the ties against Palermo, Bologna and Siena at the start of 2012.
Goran Pandev is expected to come into the starting XI.
