Uruguay forward Alvaro Recoba looks likely to miss the Serie A derby against AC Milan on Saturday and Tuesday's UEFA Champions League game at FC Spartak Moskva after injuring his calf in last night's 4-1 victory against AS Livorno Calcio.
The 30-year-old was substituted 30 minutes into the win, which enabled Inter to reclaim the league leadership, and was undergoing tests today to determine the full extent of the injury. "It's a real pity because I was feeling in great condition and I wanted to play in the important games against Milan and Spartak," said Recoba, who made his first appearance of the season last week after recovering from a thigh injury as Inter defeated the Russian side 2-1 in UEFA Champions League Group B to move on to three points from as many games.
