Milan coach Stefano Pioli recovers one and loses another, as Ante Rebic joins Theo Hernandez, Mike Maignan and Brahim Diaz on the list of absentees.
La Gazzetta dello Sport highlights the Croatian is the latest of setbacks at the Rossoneri ahead of the match against FC Porto in the Champions League.
Tiemoué Bakayoko could be back in contention, but Junior Messias is still out with a muscle problem.
Olivier Giroud has recently returned to action after struggling with coronavirus and a back injury, while Zlatan Ibrahimovi is ‘not in a position’ to start, according to Pioli.
With the two strikers returning to the fold, another one stops, as the infirmary crisis continues at Milanello.
Rebic stepped up when the two veterans were absent, but he’s struggling with an ankle problem and is excluded from the Champions league squad to face Porto.
Pioli must reinvent once again, with Rade Krunic set to start in the attacking trident behind Giroud on Tuesday night.
Milan need three points to keep their hopes of advancing from Group B alive, as they sit bottom with zero points from the first two games.
