Line-ups: Milan-Reggina

Milan unleash a Bojan Krkic, Giampaolo Pazzini and Robinho trident in the Coppa Italia against Serie B side Reggina tonight.

The Fifth Round tie kicks off at 20.00 GMT at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and the winner goes through to face Juventus in the Quarter-Finals.

Massimiliano Allegri was expected to field a below-strength side, but is testing out a new Bojan-Pazzini-Robinho strike force.

Luca Antonini and Rodney Strasser return from injury, while Christian Abbiati is back in goal.

Reggina got to the last 16 by eliminating Nocerina, Modena and Chievo.

Their Coach is former Milan youth team player Daniele Dionigi, while there are two ex-Rossoneri talents in the line-up tonight – 19-year-old Rodrigo Ely and goalkeeper Davide Facchin.

Under-20 Italy striker Manuel Fischnaller has also stated in the past that he is a Rossoneri supporter.

There are concerns for this match, as there is snow currently falling on Milan amid sub-zero temperatures.

Milan: Abbiati; Abate, Zapata, Yepes, Antonini; Flamini, Strasser, Emanuelson; Bojan, Pazzini, Robinho

Reggina: Facchin; Freddi, Ely, Bergamelli; D'Alessandro, Rizzo, Castiglia, Bombagi, Rizzato; Fischnaller, Campagnacci
