Udinese upset by Juarez loss

Udinese Calcio defender Juarez has been ruled out of next week's UEFA Champions League Group C encounter with Spanish champions FC Barcelona.
Udinese Calcio defender Juarez has been ruled out for at least a fortnight after undergoing scans on a calf injury.

Barça blow
The 31-year-old Brazilian centre-back picked up the knock ahead of Udinese's 4-2 defeat at ACF Fiorentina on Sunday and will miss next week's UEFA Champions League trip to Spanish title-holders FC Barcelona. The news is a blow to coach Serse Cosmi, who will be looking to build on the Bianconeri's 3-0 win against Panathinaikos FC on their competition debut last week.
