Delporte to miss Osasuna finale

Ludovic Delporte will miss CA Osasuna's decisive UEFA Cup match against Parma FC on Thursday after the French midfielder pulled a thigh muscle in training.

New injury
The 26-year-old was forced to abandon the Pamplona club's training session today after picking up the injury. He had only recently returned to full training having sat out Osasuna's last four Spanish league games and the UEFA Cup Group D win against Odense BK with a calf problem. Osasuna need a point from their trip to Italy to be sure of progressing to the knockout phase of the competition.
