Balotelli a Juve doubt, Pazzini…

Mario Balotelli reportedly remains a doubt to make Milan’s clash with Juventus next weekend, whilst Giampaolo Pazzini has a broken nose.

Balotelli is reported today as still uncertain to make the Rossoneri’s Week 26 meeting at home with the Bianconeri, for his continued recovery from a shoulder injury sustained last midweek against Atletico Madrid.

Causing the Italy international to skip the weekend win at Sampdoria, reports have it that Milan’s medical staff will only make a decision on his availability for next weekend just ahead of the fixture.

Meanwhile, Pazzini is also heading into that clash with an injury to take care of, having suffered a broken nose during the Rossoneri’s match at Marassi yesterday.

Medical staff have worked to reduce the 29-year-old’s injury and he is seen as in contention to be available to face the Old Lady, but is seen as likely to have to wear a protective face mask.

Also, it is suggested that Robinho could make his return next weekend after more than two weeks out with a thigh injury.
