AC Milan will miss goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma for the clash with Genoa at the San Siro tomorrow. The youngster picked up a knock in the 1-1 draw with Fiorentina and has not recovered in time. As a result, new signing Asmir Begovic is likely to get his first start for the Rossoneri. The former Chelsea and Bournemouth keeper has already featured for Milan once off the bench and nearly saved a penalty in his first game. Donnarumma picked up a knock to his ankle in is struggling to shake it off.

Begovic's debut will be a harsh one for the player as the game will take place behind closed doors. Milan need a big win over Genoa to demonstrate they have not lost their momentum after the draws with Juventus and Fiorentina.
