Oddo out for up to two months

ROME - AC Milan full-back Massimo Oddo is expected to miss up to two months after injuring his left thigh in Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Olympique Marseille in the Champions League.

"The player will be subjected to further checks next week, but the initial prognosis with a view to a return to playing is of between 40 and 60 days," read a statement on the Serie A club's website.

The former Italy international was expected to be a fringe member of Milan's squad when he returned from a loan stint at Bayern Munich in the close season but has instead been a regular starter.
