ST. PETERSBURG, October 3 (RIA Novosti)
Brazilian forward Robinho will be on the bench for AC Milan's Champions League match against Zenit St. Petersburg on Wednesday, a source in the Italian team told R-Sport.
Robinho returned from a month out with a thigh injury in the 2-0 home win over Cagliari a week ago, but is yet to achieve full fitness, the source said.
Fullback Mattia De Sciglio, who also arrived in Russia with the team, is also a doubt, the source said.
Captain Massimo Ambrosini will miss the match due to a minor injury, the source added.
The squad is already depleted with left-back Francesco Acerbi and Algerian center-back Djamel Mesbah not making the trip.
Zenit are missing Portuguese midfielder Miguel Danny, who is recovering from tearing a cruciate ligament, and Russia captain Igor Denisov, who was dropped to the reserves team on disciplinary grounds.
Both teams experienced a disappointing start to their Champions League campaign, with Zenit suffering a 3-0 away defeat to Malaga and Milan drawing 0-0 with Anderlecht at the San Siro.

August 22 marks 110th anniversary of the birth of Deng Xiaoping, the architect of reforms in the People’s Republic of China. His role in shaping the history of modern China is difficult to overstate. His Chinese model is too specific to be copied in other countries, such as Russia.
