AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri will be without the services of Alexandre Pato who is still nursing a muscle injury but Thiago Silva and Kevin-Prince Boateng trained with the rest of the first team and could be available on Wednesday.

Massimo Ambrosini is not yet ready to return and underwent a personalised training programme while Daniele Bonera will miss out after picking up a red card in the Rossoneri's 1-1 draw with Bologna last weekend.

Meanwhile, Genoa sacked Alberto Malesani for the second time this term after the club's 4-1 setback to Siena on Sunday. The club announced on Monday that Luigi De Canio will take the helm for the remaining five matches.

De Canio will not be able to call on Giandomenico Mesto and Marco Rossi who are both suspended.

The club will also be forced to play their last two home games of the season behind closed doors after their supporters caused a 40-minute delay when they threw missiles and fireworks onto the pitch on Sunday.
