Milan struck by double blow ahead of Real tie

October 19, 2009

AC Milan will be without injured duo Gennaro Gattuso and Marco Storari for Wednesday's Champions League showdown at Real Madrid.

The Rossonero club confirmed both players have not been included in coach Leonardo's team selection for the encounter in the Spanish capital.

Veteran midfielder Gattuso is recovering from a knock on his knee sustained while on international duty with Italy last week while Storari, who also missed Sunday's 2-1 triumph against Roma, is out with a thigh injury.

Brazilian goalkeeper Nelson Dida will replace Storari in goal.
