Lucas BIGLIA is expected to miss five to six weeks following an injury he picked up on Saturday.
AC Milan gave an update on the latest developments pertaining to Lucas BIGLIA’s condition after he was withdrawn in their match against Benevento on Saturday. It appears he has suffered a slight lumbar fracture in his back and should be sidelined for around five to six weeks.
Argentine journalist Hernan CASTILLO has earlier tweeted that with the World Cup just eight weeks away, Jorge SAMPAOLI and Dr. MARTINEZ will need to seriously assess his condition on whether he makes the cut for Russia.
ATENCIÓN: Lucas Biglia tiene una fractura leve en la zona lumbar que no deja entre 5 y 6 semanas en recuperación. El mundial es en 8 van a ver su evolución. Otra baja tremenda. Kranevitter gana lugar otra vez. Sampaoli y el Dr Martínez están en Europa y siguen la evolución.

If BIGLIA isn’t fit enough to the World Cup, the door for Matias KRANEVITTER is now wide open. Both SAMPAOLI and Dr. MARTINEZ are now in Europe and will only make a decision at the end of their trip.
