Gazetta dello Sport via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan could miss new signing Mario Mandzukic for another game as they take on Crvena Zvezda in the second leg of theiir UEFA Europa League round of 32 fixture at the San Siro on Thursday. The former Croatia international missed the derby against Inter Milan this weekend due to an injury sustained in training after the previous Europa League clash where he earned his first start for the Rossoneri. The injury is not major and is to his left hamstring but he remains unlikely to feature.

Gazzetta dello Sport via MilanNews.it are also reporting that former Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic is at risk for the game. The striker had a minor calf problem after the derby as he was subbed off early. The paper goes on to note that it is unlikely Stefano Pioli risks him on Thgursday night given the clash with AS Roma this weekend which will be a six pointer.

Therefore, Milan will likely miss both their experienced strikers for the knock out clash tomorrow evening.
