Milan will have to do without first-choice goalkeeper Christian Abbiati for this evening's match against Lazio in Serie A.
The 32-year-old only trained in the gym yesterday due to persistent tendinitis and was left out of Leonardo’s 21-man squad.
The untimely setback means that Brazilian shot-stopper Nelson Dida will be in the starting XI tonight as the Rossoneri look to move back to within one point of leaders Inter, who lost 2-1 to Roma yesterday.
Milan will also be without suspended duo Ronaldinho and Andrea Pirlo, as well as the likes of Alessandro Nesta, David Beckham, Alexandre Pato and Amantino Mancini, who are all out injured.
Milan squad to face Lazio:
Dida, Roma, Abate, Antonini, Favalli, Jankulovski, Kaladze, Oddo, Romagnoli, Thiago Silva, Zambrotta, Ambrosini, Flamini, Gattuso, Seedorf, Streasser, Borriello, Huntelaar, Inzaghi, Verdi, Zigoni
