Lucas Biglia was forced to exit the pitch in the 72nd minute being substituted with Manuel Locatelli following a back injury. The player underwent medical tests after the match and the results are not positive. Here is the official statement of the club:

“AC Milan inform that Lucas Biglia reported a severe lumbar trauma due to an injury during Saturday’s match against Benevento. The player has undergone medical examinations that highlighted a fracture of the transverse processes of the first two lumbar vertebrae. A detailed prognosis will be issued in the coming days upon completion of all medical tests”.

There is a strong probability that the season for the Argentine midfielder has ended. He is sure to miss the Coppa Italia final to be played on 9 May and his participation at the World Cup this summer is at risk.
