Palermo have confirmed that captain Fabrizio Miccoli will not be available for the Sicilian derby at Catania this weekend.
Miccoli is struggling with a muscle strain in his left leg and he’s been sent to Varese for specialist treatment.
The Rosanero are hoping to have him available again for the Week 34 home game against Inter.
Palermo are in the relegation zone, two points adrift of safety with six games left to play.
Miccoli, 33, has scored six goals in 24 appearances this term.
