Livorno will be without forward Luca Siligardi for at least a month with a sprained ankle.
The striker sustained the injury to his right ankle during a training session last week, but the tests only highlighted the extent of the problem today.
Livorno medical staff expect Siligardi to be out of action for approximately 30 days.
The 26-year-old has scored three goals in 16 Serie A appearances this season.
