Nesta out of Milan-Juve?

There are reports emerging that Alessandro Nesta might not even be fit enough for the bench in tonight’s Milan-Juventus showdown.

The veteran defender has been struggling with injury in recent weeks and was expected to be back in the central partnership with Thiago Silva this evening.

However, reports from the Milanello training ground this afternoon suggest Nesta has failed a fitness test and might not even be able to stay on the bench.

This means Philippe Mexes steps in to the centre-back slot.

Milan are already missing Kevin-Prince Boateng, Clarence Seedorf, Alberto Aquilani, Mario Yepes, Antonio Cassano, Gennaro Gattuso, Alexander Merkel, Rodney Strasser and the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
