Serie A Preview: Pescara - AC Milan

Massimiliano Allegri's men know a victory against the relegated home side can bring the club a step closer to securing third place in Serie A.

AC Milan's grip on the last remaining Champions League spot became a little more vice-like following the team's victory over Torino and fourth-placed Fiorentina's slip up against Roma. The Rossoneri will be desperate to take three points against Serie B-bound basement club Pescara ahead of Sunday's decisive clash against the Giallorossi.

However, on Wednesday the club will have to do without the services of the suspended Kevin-Prince Boateng, while midfielders Riccardo Montolivo and Massimo Ambrosini will face late fitness tests to decide their availability.

Midfield enforcer Nigel de Jong remains sidelined, as is forward Bojan.

Meanwhile, Christian Bucchi's side is without a number of regulars with goalkeeper Ivan Pelizzoli, midfielders Gaetano D'Agostino, Francesco Modesto, Juan Quintero and forward Gianluca Capriari all missing for the home side, although defender Per Kroldrup could return from injury.

  • Pescara's hopes of staying in Serie A next season were dashed on Sunday when the club was beaten 4-1 by Genoa.
  • The Delfini have gone 16 games without a victory and have only won once in 2013 when they beat Fiorentina 2-0 back in January.
  • The home side has lost 10 of its last 11 games against Milan.
  • Milan is four points better off than fourth-placed Fiorentina with only three matches remaining. The Viola face Pescara on the last day of the season.
  • Rossoneri forward Mario Balotelli (pictured, right) has notched nine league goals in 10 games since returning to Serie A in January.
  • You have to go as far back as 1979 for the first and only time Milan has lost to Pescara.
