Udinese have been hit with the news that David Pizarro will miss Sunday's Serie A clash against Perugia.
The Chile international has once more proved an influential figure for his side this season, after surprisingly remaining with the club in the summer.
However, the striker has picked up an injury to his back, caused by a niggling injury to his left leg.
Pizarro brought the injury to the attention of the club doctors following Friday's training session, and has been ruled out of the weekend's game.
Pizarro will undergo further scans, with Udinese medical staff confirming they are worried about the injury being more serious than they originally envisioned.
