After penalties defeats for both sides in the semifinals, it's a quick turnaround for much changed outfits in Wednesday's curtain-raiser.
Renan; Ze Mario, Fabricio, Rodrigo, Kleber; Ricardo Goulart, Glaydson, Wilson Matias; Joao Paulo; Gilberto, Lucas Roggia
Internacional is likely to make changes after putting in a concerted effort against Barcelona, but could still find more minutes for the likes of Andres D'Alessandro and Leandro Damiao during the second half.
|AC Milan (4-3-1-2): Roma; Zambrotta, Thiago Silva, Yepes, Antonini; Seedorf, Ambrosini, Valoti; Robinho; Pato, Paloschi
Massimiliano Allegri has a full squad available, and having spelled much of his first team squad for 60 minutes in the semifinal against Bayern Munich, he could give second run-outs to a number of players. The likes of Seedorf, Zambrotta, Thiago Silva, Robinho and Pato could be given starts after seeing little or no playing time on Tuesday.
