Genoa boss Alberto Malesani will be without the team's leading scorer Rodrigo Palacio who is suspended for Friday's encounter. Cesare Bovo, Luca Antonelli and Ze Eduardo will also miss out due to injury.

Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri will be without the services of Alessandro Nesta who is out for three weeks after sustaining a hip injury in the Champions League loss to Barcelona last week. Daniel Bonera will likely partner Thiago Silva in the Italian's absence.

Marco Amelia may get the nod to start between the posts on Friday after Christian Abbiati trained apart from the rest of his team-mates on Wednesday.

The Serbia international will be entrusted to provide the firepower upfront in the absence of the club’s leading scorer Rodrigo Palacio. Must link up well with Caracciolo if the hosts stand a chance of pulling off the upset.

The Sweden international eclipsed the 100-goal mark in Serie A with a brace against Chievo last weekend. ‘Ibra’ leads the Scudetto holders in scoring and will look to add to his personal tally at Marassi on Friday evening.

Editor's Prediction

The Serie A champions are firing on all cylinders in Italy at the moment and will take care of business in the port city.
