MN: Gabbia and Bennacer exit with injuries during Parma game – the latest on their condition

By Oliver Fisher -

Stefano Pioli will be sweating over the fitness of two of his key players as Matteo Gabbia and Ismael Bennacer both came of during the 2-2 draw with Parma.

Pioli was forced into an early change less than five minutes in when Matteo Gabbia went down after a challenge for a loose ball and he was unable to continue, meaning Pierre Kalulu came on for his Serie A debut.

There were yet more injury problems for Pioli to deal with as Bennacer limped off 15 minutes from time, replaced by Sandro Tonali.

According to MilanNews, Gabbia has suffered a blunt sprain trauma to his left knee, and the extent of the injury will be assessed in the coming days. Meanwhile, the outlet adds that Bennacer has experienced a muscle problem, the extent of which will be assessed tomorrow.

The hope is that it is not serious for either, given the lack of depth at centre-back currently and how important both players have been.
