Giampaolo Pazzini is out of Milan’s trip to Barcelona and possibly even longer, as tests confirmed a micro-fracture.
The striker limped off during the 2-0 win over Genoa on Friday at Marassi after scoring a goal.
The official Milan website released a statement this afternoon confirming further tests had been done on the injury.
“The tests confirmed heavy bruising and a micro-fracture to the head of the right fibula.”
It is not clear how long Pazzini will be out for, but he’ll certainly miss Tuesday’s Champions League match with Barcelona.
Mario Balotelli is cup-tied, while Philippe Mexes and Kevin-Prince Boateng are also battling injury to make it to Camp Nou.
Milan squad for Barcelona: Abbiati, Amelia, Gabriel, Abate, Antonini, Bonera, De Sciglio, Mexes, Yepes, Zapata, Ambrosini, Boateng, Constant, Flamini, Montolivo, Muntari, Nocerino, Traoré, Bojan, El Shaarawy, Niang, Robinho
