Scans have revealed that Juventus striker Amauri fractured his nose during Sunday's clash with Napoli.
The 30-year-old underwent surgery this morning to re-set his nose and will be out of action for the next two days.
It means Amauri will miss Juventus' Coppa Italia tie with Catania on Thursday.
Juventus are short of strikers what with injuries to Fabio Quagliarella and Vincenzo Iaquinta.
However, the signing of Luca Toni last week has to some extent alleviated their concerns.
