Medel gets three-game ban
Inter midfielder Gary Medel has been handed a retrospective three-match ban by Serie A for elbowing Atalanta's Jasmin Kurtic during Sunday's Serie A match.

Medel will now miss Inter's Serie A matches against Torino, Sampdoria and Crotone.

Milan welcome back Bonaventura
AC Milan midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura could make his comeback from injury just in time for the last match of the Serie A season against Roma. He has missed the Rossoneri's last three matches due to a hamstring problem, but might still start from the bench should he be available for selection on Saturday. In the 32 league appearances Bonaventura has made for Milan this campaign, he's proven influential with six goals and 10 assists.

After suffering a thigh injury against Empoli last weekend, Inter striker Mauro Icardi will miss his side's last game of the Serie A season on Saturday night.
