AC Milan have suffered a blow with news Brazilian defender Thiago Silva could be out for a month through injury.
The 27-year-old picked up a thigh injury during Saturday's 2-1 Serie A win over Roma.
The injury means he will be missing when Milan host Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday before travelling to Camp Nou on 3rd April.
Silva will also miss five Serie A games and a statement from Milan on Sunday read: "AC Milan announces Thiago Silva has undergone an MRI today which has revealed a muscular lesion in his right thigh.
"The recovery period is set for three to four weeks, unless [there are] complications."
