Donnarumma, Paqueta blow for Milan before Juventus clash

AC Milan will be without goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and midfielder Lucas Paqueta for this weekend's Serie A clash at leaders Juventus, the club said on Wednesday.

Both players suffered injuries in Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Udinese which complicates the Champions League race for Gennaro Gattuso's side, who are targeting a return to the competition for the first time since the 2013-2014 season.

They are fourth, in the final Champions League spot, with Lazio, Atalanta and Roma lurking behind.

Milan said in a statement that Donnarumma had picked up a right thigh injury and Paqueta had dislocated his right ankle, with both players' fitness to be assessed next week.

Spanish winger Suso, Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie and Italian defender Andrea Conti are all on the road to recovery.

Kessie has a left knee inflammation and Conti a left thigh strain.

Suso suffered a bruising to his left foot and is back training with the team.
