MILAN (AP) — Mario Balotelli looks set to miss his fourth consecutive match with AC Milan, this time through injury, and he could also be at risk for Tuesday's game with Barcelona.
Milan says Balotelli has a right thigh problem and will be monitored in the coming days to better understand the severity of the injury. Milan hosts Udinese on Saturday then meets Barcelona in the Champions League three days later at the San Siro.
Balotelli recently served a three-match ban for insulting the referee. He did play for Italy in Tuesday's 2-2 draw with Armenia, when he scored the equalizer.
