Gianluigi Donnarumma celebrated his 21st birthday this week. The goalkeeping prodigy has now entered a new part of his life but does so with 190 appearances under his belt. Unfortunately for AC Milan, the birthday boy looks unlikely to be available for the weekend fixture against Genoa in the league. Donnarumma picked up an ankle injury in the 1-1 draw with Fiorentina last week. Asmir Begovic made his debut and faced a penalty in that game and could be looking at his first start for the Rossoneri.

Donnarumma will likely not be risked this weekend due to the crunch tie against Juventus on the 4th of March in the Coppa Italia. He could be rested for that game as Milan will need their strongest possible team given the suspensions to Ibrahimovic, Castillejo and Hernandez.
