Palermo striker Fabrizio Miccoli is set to miss this weekend's clash with former club Juventus.

"Miccoli had scans today that showed scar tissue had completely covered the injury to his right calf, but he won't be ready for Juventus," club medic Roberto Matracia revealed yesterday.

"During this season he has fallen victim to a number of injuries that have hit different areas on his two calf muscles.

"Obviously, we would love to have him out there, but we want to truly solve the problems before we send him back out on the pitch."
