AC Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati will be out of action for two weeks with a right shoulder injury. The 34-year-old sustained the injury in last week's UEFA Champions League game against Barcelona and sat out last Sunday's 4-0 win over Chievo.

Tests done on the player ruled out the need for surgery but Abbiati will take around 15 days to recover. Marco Amelia will again replace Abbiati in goal when i Rossoneri face Genoa in Liguria on Friday.

Abbiati had played in all of Milan's league games prior to last weekend's clash against Chievo.
