Easier test for Roma's defence

AS Roma

Mario Balotelli boost for AC Milan

AC Milan have been boosted after Mario Balotelli came through training unscathed on Friday.

AC Milan's Balotelli's name was mentioned in a Camorra trial
Balotelli made a positive impression at Milan during the second half of last season.

Paul: Mario boost ahead of PSV

Balotelli missed Italy's 2-1 loss to Argentina during midweek with a knee problem, leading to concerns he could be absent for the start of Milan's season.

But the forward, who scored 12 goals in 13 games for the club following his arrival from Manchester City, looks set to be available for the team's Champions League meeting with PSV Eindhoven next week.

"Mario should be fit," Milan’s vice-president Adriano Galliani said in the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"His knee is responding well and I’ve spoken to (coach Massimiliano) Allgeri and he says he should play.

"The team is ready physically and mentally. I saw us play in Germany and the USA and it seems like we’re in good shape, but we’ll just have to see."
