Palermo lose captain Barreto

Palermo will be without captain Edgar Barreto for three weeks after the Paraguay international suffered a thigh strain.

The midfielder had tests today that showed a Grade II lesion to the right thigh muscle.

Medics expect him to be out of action for around three weeks.

Teammate Emerson was also diagnosed with a lesion to the ligament in the right ankle and he too will be on the treatment table for almost a month.
