The striker was forced out of the 4-0 win after 65 minutes with a thigh strain and was swiftly replaced by Enrico Fantini.
It had been thought Miccoli might spend a prolonged spell on the sidelines, however general director Fabrizio Lucchesi is confident the ace will be back on the pitch in no time.
"Miccoli suffered a bad blow. It's quite bad but we are optimistic and confident," said Lucchesi.
Coach Sergio Buso is unaware of Miccoli's situation, but is crossing his fingers.
"Miccoli? I don't know," he said. "I hope it's not a bad one."
