Goalkeeper Christian Abbiati is a major doubt for AC Milan's trip to Real Madrid CF in UEFA Champions League Group G on 19 October because of a thigh injury.
Tests have confirmed that Abbiati strained his right thigh during the Rossoneri's 1-0 win at Parma FC on Saturday and according to the Milan medical staff the 33-year-old "will be out of action for 15 to 20 days".
The former Club Atlético de Madrid player could therefore miss a return to the Spanish capital when Milan take on Group G leaders Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu. Massimiliano Allegri's men are second in the section with four points, two behind their next opponents, after beating AJ Auxerre at home and drawing at AFC Ajax.
