SSC Napoli defender Miguel Britos will miss his side's UEFA Champions League Group F trip to Olympique de Marseille on Tuesday after dislocating his collarbone.
The 28-year-old Uruguayan centre-back was forced off after 44 minutes of Friday's 2-0 defeat at Serie A leaders AS Roma after falling badly on his right shoulder. The former Bologna FC had a scan this morning which the club confirmed revealed a "second degree dislocation to his right clavicle."
Britos will have further tests on Monday morning but the game at OM will be too soon for his recovery. Napoli coach Rafael Benítez had also lost left-back Camilo Zúñiga with a knee injury ahead of the loss against Roma, while right-back Christian Maggio played for the first time since knee surgery in September.
Meanwhile, OM centre-back Lucas Mendes is also out after an ankle injury sustained in Friday night's 1-0 defeat at OGC Nice. The Brazilian was substituted on eight minutes and has been diagnosed with a left ankle strain. "OM's medical staff have ruled him out for Napoli's visit on Tuesday," the club stated. "And probably for Saturday's game with Stade de Reims."
