ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC’S ban has been reduced, but the player is still out of the derby game.
The Sweden striker got a three match ban two weeks ago but Milan launched an appeal on the decision.
The Serie A’s disciplinary commissioner decided to reduce Ibrahimovic’s ban to two games, even though they did not accept Milan’s claim that Ibra’s gesture was not violent.
This means that Zlatan is still out of the derby that takes place after the international break, on April 2. He has already served one game out, against Palermo, so he’ll return when Milan take on Fiorentina.
Ibra is not the only player who is suspended from the derby: also Lucio is out.
As for the injuries, Massimo Ambrosini, Marek Jankulovski and Filippo Inzaghi are all out. Andrea Pirlo remains a doubt for the game while Kevin-Prince Boateng and Alexandre Pato are expected to return.
