AC Milan midfielder Massimo Ambrosini and forward Pato have been ruled out of their 28 September trip to AFC Ajax after injuries sustained in the 2-0 Group G defeat of AJ Auxerre.

Milan began their UEFA Champions League campaign with victory on Wednesday but it came at a price. Captain Ambrosini suffered a left knee injury after only 15 minutes and was replaced by Kevin-Prince Boateng; tests today showed no ligament damage but the 33-year-old will not return for three weeks. Meanwhile Pato, 21, is out for a similar period after hurting his left thigh.
