Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed that Mario Balotelli will not be available for tomorrow’s game against Lazio.
The January signing from Manchester City picked up an injury in the 1-1 draw with Inter last weekend which has seen him ruled out of the Biancocelesti tie.
“Balotelli took quite a knock to his tibia and there is substantial bruising,” the tactician told Milan Channel.
“He’s not trained all week so he won’t be at my disposal. That’s unless something miraculous happens between now and tomorrow morning.”
The 22-year-old Italian international has scored four goals in four League games for the Diavolo since his arrival.
