Line-ups: Chievo-Milan

Milan give Mattia De Sciglio his Serie A debut and draft in Mario Yepes, as a decimated side takes on Chievo this evening.

The Rossoneri have one point from their last two games, meaning they have dropped off the top of the Serie A table behind Juventus.

Massimiliano Allegri faces a massive injury crisis that has ruled out an entire team, as Alberto Aquilani, Daniele Bonera and Massimo Ambrosini are suspended.

They join the sidelined Mark van Bommel, Ignazio Abate, Luca Antonini, Thiago Silva, Pippo Inzaghi, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Flavio Roma, Alexandre Pato and Djamel Mesbah.

It means 19-year-old De Sciglio receives his Serie A debut at right-back, having featured in two Champions League games against Viktoria Plzen this season.

There were reports Alessandro Nesta was carrying an injury, but instead it’s Philippe Mexes and Urby Emanuelson who are only fit for the bench, in favour of former Chievo defender Yepes.

Chievo are fresh from back-to-back victories over Fiorentina and Catania, but miss Boukary Drame, Davide Moscardelli and Nikola Gulan.

The Flying Donkeys are comfortable in mid-table and can count on veteran Sergio Pellissier and Milan-owned striker Alberto Paloschi.

Chievo: Sorrentino; Sardo, Dainelli, Acerbi, Frey; Sammarco, Bradley, Rigoni; Thereau; Pellissier, Paloschi

Chievo bench: Puggioni, Cesar, Hetemaj, Andreolli, Luciano, Cruzado, Uribe.

Milan: Abbiati;De Sciglio, Nesta, Yepes, Zambrotta; Gattuso, Muntari, Nocerino; Seedorf;Ibrahimovic, Robinho

Milan bench: Amelia, Mexes, Emanuelson, Strasser, Cassano, El Shaarawy, Maxi Lopez.
