Milan's Mateo Mussachio has received a one-game ban over his horrendous tackle on Franck Ribery against Fiorentina. The Argentine has been struggling to keep up this season and has been directly responsible for a number of goals conceded and finally lost his nerve and got sent off in the last game.

The challenge for Marco Giampaolo will be finding the replacement to partner with Alessio Romagnoli. His options are Leo Duarte - the new signing from Flamengo - and Matteo Gabbia - the young academy player. It is highly likely that Duarte will get the nod as he was brought on to replace the sent off Musacchio against Fiorentina, the trouble with Genoa will be managing the speedy attackers in Kouame and Sanabria.
