AC Milan Right Back Andrea Conti Could Miss Juventus Game In The Coppa Italia

The right back has struggled to establish himself at the club due to recurring injury and seems likely to miss another key opportunity.

Manuele Baiocchini via MilanNews.it is reporting that AC Milan could lose right back Andrea Conti for their Coppa Italia semi final against Juventus in two weeks. The defender is reported to not be doing well but it is unclear whether he has an injury or is ill. The defender would have likely started as the right back with Davide Calabria swapping to left back for the fixture.

Milan will already be missing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Samu Castillejo and Theo Hernandez due to suspension. This would lead to either Diego Laxalt or Leo Durate being brought back into the fold to cover on either wing. The report also notes that Milan could go with a back three for the game. The game is currently at 1-1 with Juventus having a slight advantage due to the away goal.
