AC Milan v SS Lazio - Serie A Photo by Francesco Scaccianoce/LiveMedia/NurPhoto via Getty Images are reporting that AC Milan have lost their right back and vice captain Davide Calabria for at least the next two games after he picked up a calf injury with the national team. Calabria came off the bench for Italy in their 1-1 draw with Switzerland last week. The defender will now miss the game against Fiorentina this weekend in Serie A and the Champions League tie against Atletico Madrid in the upcoming midweek. There is no clarity on his injury or the timeline of recovery but it will take a couple of days for him to undergo tests and get the relevant results.

Another issue is that of Fode Ballo-Toure who did not feature for Senegal as they pick up an injury when he reported for international duty. His couach Aliou Cisse has said via

“Ballo-Touré reached the Senegalese camp with a crutch. We performed an MRI which revealed a muscle tear, we all realised the problem he already had.”
