The three Rossoneri veterans will play their last game for the Rossoneri when Attilio Tesser's men make the short trip to the Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday.

  PROBABLE LINE-UPS

AC MILAN

Amelia
Zambrotta, Nesta, Yepes, Mesbah
Gattuso, Van Bommel, Nocerino
Seedorf
Ibrahimovic, Inzaghi
NOVARA

Fontana
Morganella, Lisuzzo, Garcia, Gemiti

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri will almost certainly include Gennaro Gattuso, Alessandro Nesta and Filippo Inzaghi in his starting lineup after the trio announced they will leave the Rossoneri at the end of the season.

Allegri will be forced to reshuffle his back line, with Gianluca Zambrotta replacing the suspended Ignazio Abate. Djamel Mesbah will come in for the injured Daniele Bonera.

Marco Amelia will deputize for Christian Abbiati between the posts. Alexandre Pato, Sulley Muntari and Urby Emanuelson are nursing injuries and will not feature in the last game of the season on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Novara boss Attilio Tesser will be unable to call on a plethora of first team regulars as Massimo Paci, Samir Ujkani, Andrea Caracciolo, Francesco Marianini, Achille Coser and Andrea Mazzarani are all injured and Giuseppe Mascara is banned.
