Sampdoria hitman Eder has “a small tear” to the right thigh muscle and is expected to miss out on the remaining 2015 games.
The striker sustained the injury during last night’s 1-1 Serie A draw with Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico.
A club statement confirmed a small tear had been discovered in the right thigh muscle and he has already begun treatment.
Sampdoria have two more games before the break for Christmas, hosting Milan in the Coppa Italia on Thursday night and Palermo in Serie A at the weekend.
