AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri faces selection issues ahead of his side's UEFA Champions League Group H opener against Celtic FC on Wednesday after Stephan El Shaarawy and Riccardo Montolivo joined an already long injury list, with Andrea Poli also in doubt.
The 20-year-old forward El Shaarawy suffered a strain on the eve of Saturday's Serie A meeting with Torino FC and scans subsequently revealed muscle damage in his left thigh. Meanwhile, midfielder Montolivo suffered a similar injury during the first half of the 2-2 draw. The duo will undergo further tests in the next few days but are certain miss the game against the Scottish champions.
As for Poli, who replaced Montolivo against Torino, he was seen limping after the final whistle, but tests have revealed no more than a bruise on his right thigh. Ignazio Abate, Mattia De Sciglio, Matías Silvestre, Daniele Bonera and Giampaolo Pazzini were already set to be absent for the Rossoneri.
