Roma midfielder Simone Perrotta will be sidelined for around three weeks after sustaining knee ligament damage.

The 30-year-old suffered the injury to his left knee in his team´s 3-0 triumph at Parma on Sunday and will now miss Italy´s Euro 2008 qualifier against Georgia on Saturday.

He is also set to miss Roma´s Serie A clash against Napoli on October 21 and the Champions League encounter with Sporting Lisbon two days later.
