Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri has named a 21-man squad for Saturday’s Serie A game at Catania.
The Rossoneri, who have a four point lead over Juventus, will face the Sicilian outfit without a number of key players.
Mark Van Bommel is still missing, while Alessandro Nesta has also been omitted following his fine display against Barcelona in midweek, as has Clarence Seedorf.
Thiago Silva, Alexandre Pato, Pippo Inzaghi, Mathieu Flamini and Antonio Cassano are also still out of contention.
Maxi Lopez, on loan from Catania, does make the cut. Mesbah and Muntari are banned.
Squad: Abbiati, Amelia, Piscitelli; Abate, Antonini, Bonera, De Sciglio, Mexes, Zambrotta, Yepes; Ambrosini, Aquilani, Boateng, Emanuelson, Gattuso, Merkel, Nocerino; El Shaarawy, Ibrahimovic, Maxi Lopez, Robinho.
