Genoa midfielder Francelino Matuzalem is set to miss the club's match with Milan this Friday.
The 32-year-old has been virtually ever-present for the Grifone since his January move from Lazio, but he is likely to be on the sidelines for the game with Massimiliano Allegri's men as he recovers from a muscle problem.
The Brazilian is set for more tests tomorrow to determine how serious the injury is, but initial reports suggest he could miss between 10-14 days.
