Milan and Genoa have 11 combined absentees ahead of San Siro clash – the names

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face Genoa tonight at San Siro in what is a must-win game in their pursuit of the Scudetto, and a couple of key players are back for the Rossoneri.

MilanNews writes that Ante Rebic and Ismael Bennacer are back in the squad for the Rossoneri after both were out against Torino due to muscle problems. The latter is expected to start in the double pivot while the former could well come off the bench.

Samu Castillejo is still out as he picked up an ankle problem yesterday in training, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is struggling with an overload in his knee and captain Alessio Romagnoli has inflammation in his thigh. Simon Kjaer and Alessandro Florenzi continue their recovery from surgery.

Meanwhile, Genoa are expected to be without Inter loanee Zinho Vanheusden, reported Milan target Andrea Cambiaso, Lennart Czyborra, Juventus loanee Nicolo Rovella, Riccardo Calafiori and Yayah Kallon, bringing the total absentees for both sides to a combined 11.
