Mattia Cassani is out of Palermo's clash with Fiorentina after tests on the injury he picked up while on international duty.
The full-back limped off during the 1-1 draw against Germany in Dortmund on Wednesday.
This afternoon the official Palermo website confirmed a muscular problem in the right thigh, but it is not so serious as a strain.
It rules him out of Sunday's game with Fiorentina, but Cassani should be back for next week's fixtures.
