Asmir Begovic might have to step up as Gianluigi Donnarumma seems likely to sit out of Milan’s match against Genoa on Sunday.
Multiple reports in Italy claim that the Azzurri star is still in pain after suffering an injury in a challenge with Federico Chiesa during the last match against Fiorentina.
The reports suggest that Stefano Pioli will not be ready to risk the shot-stopper in fear of another setback, as the young Rossoneri keeper still struggles to overcome the problem.
It is seen as a precaution ahead of an important return leg against Juventus in the Coppa Italia, where the two giants are locked at 1-1 after the match in Milan.
This means that the former Bournemouth goalkeeper Begovic should get his first start for the club, after coming on for his debut to replace Donnarumma against the Viola.
