Genoa have suffered an injury setback with the news that Juraj Kucka will be out of action for the next month.
The 25-year-old picked up a problem in the closing stages of the 0-0 draw with Juventus on Sunday which will see him sidelined for around four weeks.
The Slovakian international, part-owned with Italian giants Inter, has been struck down by a muscle strain to his left thigh.
Kucka, a January 2011 signing from Sparta Prague, has scored twice in 20 Serie A games so far this term.
