The 43-year-old is eagerly anticipating the upcoming encounter against the Rossoneri, and has admitted he could rest some of his key players
The 43-year-old has admitted that he is likely to make some changes to his team, but has insisted that the Rossoneri are a team to be reckoned with.
"Milan deserve to be respected. We will meet a great team. We have reached the quarter-finals of the competition and they will want to go as far as possible," Conte told reporters.
"Obviously, we have the desire to put in a great performance. I might decide to make a few changes to the team and field some players who have not been regulars.
"I expect a response from those players who will get a chance. I want to see progress from all my players.
"[Luca] Marrone could feature in [Andrea] Pirlo's position. [Mirko] Vucinic is having some physical problems and we'll have to deal with that. We cannot afford to miss him for a long time."
Wednesday's encounter is scheduled to kick off at 20:45GMT.
