Tiago out of AC Milan trip

Atletico Madrid midfielder Tiago Mendes will miss next week's Champions League last-16 match against AC Milan through injury.

Tiago was stretchered off during Saturday's Primera Liga game against Almeria after a late challenge from compatriot Helder Barbosa.

Tests on the Portugal international revealed a fractured wrist and a sprained ligament in his right knee, Atletico confirmed.

Tiago will undergo surgery on his wrist on Tuesday and is expected to miss his team's next few games, including the first-leg clash against Milan at the San Siro on February 19.
