Serie A - AC Milan v AS Roma

ROME (Reuters) - AS Roma defender Marash Kumbulla faces up to four weeks out with a knee injury, the Serie A club confirmed to Reuters on Monday.

The 21-year-old sustained a right knee sprain and a small tear to his meniscus while on international duty with Albania and will be out of action for three to four weeks.

But Kumbulla, who joined Roma from Hellas Verona at the start of the season, does not require surgery.

The centre back, who has made 23 appearances in all competitions this season, will miss both legs of Roma's Europa League quarter-final against Ajax Amsterdam on April 8 and 15.
