Pazzini micro fracture?

Giampaolo Pazzini scored a goal despite limping last night, but there are fears the Milan striker may have suffered a micro fracture.

The forward was limping heavily after a challenge from behind by Daniele Portanova in a 2-0 win over Genoa.

Despite hobbling, he was able to smash a powerful finish in off the underside of the crossbar just moments before his substitution.

Pazzini was spotted still limping this morning, sparking reports he has suffered a micro fracture, though test results are expected tomorrow.

Philippe Mexes is also at risk for Tuesday’s Champions League trip to Barcelona, as he went off at half-time at Marassi with a muscular problem.
