After Wednesday's defeat to Barcelona, the Rossoneri will be hoping to maintain their impressive domestic form, which has seen them win five of their last six league encounters.


PROBABLE LINEUPS

AC MILAN


Abbiati
Abate, Bonera, Thiago Silva, Zambrotta
Nocerino, Van Bommel, Seedorf
Boateng
Pato, Ibrahimovic
Chievo


Sorrentino
Frey, Andreolli, Cesar, Jokic
Hetemaj, Rigoni, Bradley
 Sammarco

Pellissier,
Thereau

The home side will still be without long term absentees Antonio Cassano, Mathieu Flamini and Gennaro Gattuso, with none of the trio expected to return to the squad until after the new year.

On the plus side for the Rossoneri, Kevin-Prince Boateng is available after serving his domestic ban, along with Alexandre Pato, who has returned from injury with substitute appearances against Fiorentina and Barcelona. Philippe Mexes could also return to the squad after recovering from a hand injury. The former Roma defender is unlikely to start, even though Alessandro Nesta has been ruled out with a hip injury, but could well make the bench behind Daniele Bonera.

Domenico Di Carlo's side will have to face Milan without defenders Santiago Morero and Genardo Sardo, who are both suffering from thigh strains.

The visiting side is also likely to be without Peruvian midfielder Rinaldo Cruzado, with Paolo Sammarco expected to step in. However, Bostjan Cesar is in line to regain his place in the center of defense after returning from the bench in last week's victory over Catania.
