AC Milan's quest for European soccer continues on Sunday with boss Massimiliano Allegri having a couple of injuries to contend with as defender Mario Yepes and midfielder Massimo Ambrosini miss out for the clash against Bologna.
Tough-tackling midfielder Nigel de Jong is the only long-term absentee for the host.
The Rossoneri have no suspensions to worry about, though Stephan El Shaarawy is walking a disciplinary tightrope as his next booking incurs a ban.
Allegri might reshuffle his pack with Daniele Bonera in contention to start instead of Philippe Mexes, while promising youngster M'Baye Niang may play instead of Bojan up front.
Meanwhile, Bologna is unlikely to change the team that emphatically beat Chievo 4-0.
But coach Stefano Pioli is missing defender Cesare Natali, midifielders Saphir Taider and Henry Gimenez, and attacker Robert Acquafresca for the trip to San Siro.

- Bologna last beat Milan at San Siro 2-1 back in 2008. Goals by Marco Di Vaio and Francesco Valiani were enough to give the visitor the win that day.
