Amauri has not recovered from a facial injury, so won’t be in the Parma squad travelling to Pescara for Sunday’s lunch-time match.
The Italian-Brazilian striker had been in doubt after he required 12 stitches to his top lip following an accidental clash during Wednesday’s 3-2 win over Roma.
Amauri will not be risked for the 11.30am GMT kick-off at the Stadio Adriatico.
The Ducali are also without Ishak Belfodil, who picked up a ban, so the strike options are between Jonathan Biabiany, Dorlan Pabon, Raffaele Palladino and Nicola Sansone.
Fabiano Santacroce and Daniele Galloppa are long-term absentees.
Parma squad for Pescara: Mirante, Pavarini, Bajza; Benalouane, Fideleff, Lucarelli, Paletta, Zaccardo; Acquah, Gobbi, Marchionni, Morrone, Musacci, Ninis, Parolo, Rosi, Valdes; Biabiany, Pabon, Palladino, Sansone
