Massimiliano Allegri's men are in control of their own destiny and only need to better Fiorentina's result to qualify for next season's Champions League


Siena approach their last Serie A fixture for quite some time following their relegation last week with almost a full-strength squad to call upon, as only veteran captain Simone Vergassola, Carlos Matheu and Nicola Pozzi are ruled out for the visit of AC Milan.

Nonetheless, coach Beppe Iachini is expected to name a second-string side against the Rossoneri, with only Alessio Sestu and Claudio Terzi likely to retain their places from last weekend's 2-1 defeat to Napoli.

Milan, on the the hand, have successfully turned their season around and lie one match away from featuring in next season's Champions League for a fifth consecutive campaign.

To achieve their feat, only Nigel de Jong and Bojan Krkic are missing through injury, while Sulley Muntari is suspended. With that in mind, the Ghanaian midfielder will be replaced by Riccardo Montolivo.

   DID YOU KNOW?
  • Milan only need to better Fiorentina's result or win at San Siro to finish third.

  • Barring a defeat to champions Juventus last month, the Rossoneri have not lost a Serie A match since the turn of the year.
  • They have failed to qualify for the Champions League just twice since the millennium.
  • Siena have lost their last five matches on the bounce.

  • In addition, their record against Milan is poor with just one win in 14 previous meetings.
  • Innocent Emeghara (pictured, right) has been a rare bright spot in the Tuscans' season with an impressive seven goals in just 12 appearances.
