Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini will miss the Italian Super Cup Final against Napoli because of injury.
The centre-back, who can also be used as a left-back, will thus take no part in the August 12 Coppa Italia re-match in Beijing.
His absence could open the door for Lucio to make his competitive appearances for the club given that he is expected to complete his move to Turin after leaving Inter on Friday.
