Balic has knee injury

Udinese will be without Andrija Balic for their final match of the season, as he has been diagnosed with a knee ligament injury.

The 20-year-old Croatian midfielder has made 21 Serie A appearances this term, plus three in the Coppa Italia.

Tests showed a lesion to the collateral internal ligament in his right knee following a sprain.

Over the next few days, medics will decide whether to surgery is necessary.

Balic will certainly miss Sunday evening’s match against Bologna.
