Massimiliano Allegri's men will be aiming to leapfrog Juventus in the race for the Scudetto, with a win over the Rossoblu at San Siro on Sunday afternoon

  PROBABLE LINE-UPS

AC MILAN

Abbiati
Abate, Nesta, Yepes, Antonini
Nocerino, Van Bommel, Muntari
Seedorf
Ibrahimovic, Robinho
BOLOGNA

Agliardi
Raggi, Portanova, Cherubin
Garics, Perez, Mudingayi, Rubin
Ramirez, Diamanti
Di Vaio

AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri will be without a handful of influential players for the clash at San Siro. Thiago Silva, Alexandre Pato and Kevin-Prince Boateng are all still nursing muscle injuries while Massimo Ambrosini will also miss out due to a knock.

Mark van Bommel returns from a back injury and should be handed a start in midfield while Ignazio Abate has recovered from a muscle strain and should slot into a right-back role. Daniele Bonera is available for selection again after serving a ban.

Meanwhile, Federico Agliardi will deputise for the injured Jean-Francois Gillet between the posts for Bologna at the weekend. Gyorgy Garics will likely receive the starting nod ahead of Nico Pulzetti on the right side.

Bologna boss Stefano Pioli will also be unable to call upon Jose Angel Crespo and Federico Casarini who are injured.
