Nelson Dida has been handed a two -match ban following his collapse against Celtic last Wednesday in Milan's 2-1 loss to Celtic.
Dida was struck by a fan, who invaded the pitch during the celebrations of Celtic's second goal, he turned around and run after the fan but only to fall down moments later.
Punishment was expected after the Brazilians dramatic fall, as he broke the rule of Article 5 in the code of behaviour.
The rossoneri will be without Dida for both of the games against Shakhtar and they will be hoping that Australian Kalac can fill Dida's shoes.
Celtic, too, were investigated and they have been fined £25 000 for 'poor organisation of their fans' and they will also be monitored closely by UEFA for the next two years.
In other news, Dida will not make tomorrow's trip to play a friendly against Bilbao providing Kalac with some game time to get match fit for Milan's vital Champions League encounters against the Ukrainians.
Maldini and Serginho have been been included in the squad but there is still no Ronaldo who is expected to play against Empoli in 11 days time.
The starting line-up will be:
Kalac, Cafu, Nesta, Maldini, Favalli, Serginho, Brocchi, Emerson, Gourcuff, Gilardino and Pato.
