Line-ups: Juventus-Milan

Juventus-Milan is always a spectacle, as Stephan El Shaarawy, Robinho and Giampaolo Pazzini take on Mirko Vucinic and Paul Pogba in Turin tonight.

Although the Rossoneri are not in the Scudetto race this season, there is still plenty at stake in this clash. Click here for a match preview.

Massimiliano Allegri’s men need points to push Napoli for second and stave off Fiorentina in the hunt for a Champions League spot, as today the Viola closed to within a point.

Mario Balotelli and Mathieu Flamini sit out bans, but Massimo Ambrosini, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Ignazio Abate and Bojan Krkic have shaken off injuries.

El Shaarawy is back in the starting XI after he was surprisingly dropped for the 1-1 draw with Napoli, partnering Pazzini and Robinho, while Boateng is moved to midfield.

Juventus have Giorgio Chiellini in defence after his ankle problems and Nicklas Bendtner on the bench for the first time since December. Sebastian Giovinco, Nicolas Anelka and Simone Pepe are on the treatment table.

Antonio Conte has again opted for a 3-5-1-1 system so he can field the impressive Pogba and use Claudio Marchisio in a support striker role behind Vucinic.
