PROBABLE LINE-UPS

BOLOGNA

Gillet
Raggi, Portanova, Antonsson, Morleo
Perez, Mudingayi, Kone
Ramirez
Acquafresca, Di Vaio

AC MILAN

Abbiati
Abate, Yepes, Thiago Silva, Antonini
Aquilani, Van Bommel,
Seedorf 
Boateng
Ibrahimovic, Pato

Stefano Pioli should have a full squad at this disposal for the visit of the champions, with Diego Perez in line to start after recovering from the thigh strain that kept him out of last week's victory over Siena, while Pongiotis Kone should also return after serving his suspension in last week's encounter.

The visitors should welcome back Christian Abbiati and Mark van Bommel this week, after they recovered from shoulder and knee injuries, respectively, while Alberto Aquilani is also expected to take part after sitting out the midweek clash with Viktoria Plzen through suspension.

The Rossoneri will, however, still be without the services of Alessandro Nesta, with the former Lazio captain not expected back until after the winter break, while Antonio Nocerino will also miss out with a thigh injury.
