Robinho and Maxi back for Barca

Kevin-Prince Boateng, Maxi Lopez and Robinho are in the Milan squad to face Barcelona in tomorrow’s Champions League quarter-final.

The injury list remains substantial going into the Wednesday night first leg clash at San Siro.

Among those sidelined are Thiago Silva, Alexandre Pato, Ignazio Abate, Antonio Cassano, Mathieu Flamini, Rodney Strasser, Gennaro Gattuso and Pippo Inzaghi, some of whom are not even in the UEFA list.

Mark Van Bommel is banned in midfield, so there are necessarily changes.

The good news for Coach Massimiliano Allegri is that there are more available striking options with both Maxi Lopez and Robinho returning from their lay-offs.

Boateng made his comeback as a substitute in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Roma, while Alessandro Nesta was only fit for the bench at that stage.

Milan squad for Barcelona: Abbiati, Amelia, Antonini, Bonera, De Sciglio, Mesbah, Mexes, Nesta, Zambrotta, Yepes, Ambrosini, Aquilani, Boateng, Emanuelson, Nocerino, Seedorf, El Shaarawy, Ibrahimovic, Maxi Lopez, Robinho
