Juan Manuel Vargas will miss out on Genoa’s big game against Juventus after picking up an injury on international duty.
The Marassi side are due to face Juve on Sunday, but Vargas returned from Peru with a left thigh strain.
It is not yet clear how long the former Fiorentina winger will be sidelined for, but it could be a couple of weeks.
More tests are needed on the small lesion to the left thigh muscle, which he picked up during the game with Venezuela.
