Milan finally have some good news from the infirmary, as Ante Rebic does not have a serious ankle injury and could potentially face Porto.
The forward limped off during the first half of last night’s 3-2 victory over Hellas Verona at San Siro.
It was initially described as a muscular issue, then an ankle sprain, but tests today showed no lesions or ligament damage to the left ankle.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Croatia international’s condition will be evaluated on a daily basis, but it is not entirely out of the question that he could face FC Porto in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.
The Rossoneri need to play catch-up in Europe after two unlucky defeats to Liverpool and Atletico Madrid.
Stefano Pioli already has a huge list of absentees to deal with, including Theo Hernandez and Brahim Diaz, who tested positive for COVID-19.
Mike Maignan, Junior Messias, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Alessandro Florenzi and Alessandro Plizzari are still out of action too.
