Udinese will be without Andrija Balic for their final match of the season, as he has been diagnosed with a knee ligament injury.
The 20-year-old Croatian midfielder has made 21 Serie A appearances this term, plus three in the Coppa Italia.
Tests showed a lesion to the collateral internal ligament in his right knee following a sprain.
Over the next few days, medics will decide whether to surgery is necessary.
Balic will certainly miss Sunday evening’s match against Bologna.
