Carlo Pellegatti is reporting via Sempre Milan that Bosnia international Asmir Begovic is expected to make his AC Milan debut in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday evening just two days after signing for the club. Donnarumma has picked up a slight injury and the Milan starter will likely miss the fixture against SPAL to kick off the Cup campaign.
Begovic has joined on a 6 month loan from Bournemouth as cover for Pepe Reina who has joined Aston Villa on a similar 6 month loan. Begovic formerly played for Chelsea and Stoke City in his 15 year career.
