Defender Francesco Acerbi has continued to train individually ahead of Inter Milan’s Champions League match against Atletico Madrid.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who also report that Stefano Sensi is not training with the rest of the squad at this stage.

Acerbi is one player who has long looked to be a major doubt for Tuesday’s match against Atletico Madrid.

At the moment, the 35-year-old former Lazio and Sassuolo defender is out with a calf problem.

The injury is to the same muscle that kept Acerbi out for the first month or so of the season.

Acerbi picked the muscle injury up during Inter’s Serie A win over Roma earlier this month.

The Italian international had started that match. However, he had to come off at around the hour mark after pulling up with an injury.

Former Biancocelesti defender Stefan de Vrij replaced Acerbi in that match.

And it was de Vrij who also started against Salernitana on Friday in Serie A.

Francesco Acerbi Still Training Individually Ahead Of Inter Vs Atletico Madrid Clash

It has never looked likely that Acerbi would recover in time for Tuesday.

On Tuesday evening, Inter will host La Liga giants Atletico at the San Siro for a Champions League round of sixteen first leg match.

And it has always looked very likely that de Vrij would be starting that match.

According to FCIN, there has been no surprise return to full training for Acerbi.

The 35-year-old continued to work individually on his fitness in today’s session.

Therefore, Acerbi should not be available for Tuesday’s match.

Then, the question will be whether the Italian international is able to return in time for Inter’s next match, on Sunday evening away to Lecce in Serie A.

Meanwhile, FCIN report, midfielder Sensi was still absent from training. The 28-year-old had looked all set for a January move to Leicester City, which fell through.

And wingback Juan Cuadrado continues to work individually on his recovery from tendon surgery which he underwent in December.

The Colombian will be out of action for the foreseeable future.
