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 personalized training program 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 its last two home games of the season behind closed doors after the supporters caused a 40-minute delay when they threw fireworks onto the pitch on Sunday.

  • AC Milan has picked up eight points in its last five games, while title rival Juventus has secured 15.
  • The Rossoneri are winless in their last two matches at San Siro.
  • Allegri's men have emerged winners in four games by a three-goal margin this season.
  • Genoa is winless in its last 12 league encounters.
  • The Rossoblu have conceded 13 goals in their past five games.
  • De Canio's side currently hovers just one point over the relegation zone.
