AC Milan take on Juventus tomorrow night in Turin as Stefano Pioli’s side look to pick up a fourth consecutive win in the league. Milan are set to miss out on veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic yet again as the former Sweden international was ruled out of the mid week tie against Liverpool FC in the Champions League due to an injury.

MilanNews.it are reporting that the striker has been undergoing a personalised training regime at Milanello but is unlikely to return in time for the game tomorrow night. The player has an inflammation in his tendon since the game against Lazio at the San Siro.

Ibrahimovic spoke to the press via MilanNews.it to say:

“For Juve, let’s see, I have a small problem with my tendon, but otherwise everything is fine. I don’t want to risk having consequences, I don’t want to play one and then skip other games, like last year. This time I’ll listen to my body without thinking I’m Superman.”
