Silva to miss Barca clash

24 March 2012 22:36

Milan defender Thiago Silva will miss Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final first-leg with Barcelona.

Silva was expected to be rested for Saturday's 2-1 win over Roma after picking up a knock during last week's 2-2 draw with Juventus in the Coppa Italia.

However, the former Fluminense defender was put through his own personal warm-up before kick-off and deemed fit enough to start versus Roma, only to be hauled off after just 10 minutes with a leg muscle injury.

"Thiago Silva has a problem with a flexor muscle and cannot play in the Champions League against Barcelona. I risked him, but it did not pay off," Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri told Sky Sport Italia after the match.

Silva's injury could prove to be a big blow for the reigning Italian champions, who are already set to be without a host of players for Wednesday's first-leg encounter against Barca.

Nevertheless, the win against Roma means Milan move seven points clear of Juventus at the summit of Serie A, thanks to a pair of goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
