MILAN (AP) — AC Milan defender Davide Calabria will miss the rest of the season because of a fractured bone in his left leg.

Calabria had to be substituted shortly before halftime in Wednesday’s 1-0 loss to Lazio in the Italian Cup semifinals.

Milan says tests “have revealed a compound fracture of the left fibula.” The club adds that “a new scan is scheduled to take place in about a month.”

Milan has five matches left this season.

Calabria is also likely to miss the European under-21 championship, which takes place from June 16-30. He has made 15 appearances for Italy’s under-21 team.
