It’s expected to be a goalfest at San Siro when Milan host Roma in a head-to-head for European places tonight.

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), click here for a match preview.

The Rossoneri need a win to lock down third place and entry into the Champions League preliminary round.

Riccardo Montolivo, Daniele Bonera, Luca Antonini, Bojan Krkic and Nigel De Jong are out of action.

Mario Balotelli leads the way with Kevin-Prince Boateng and Stephan El Shaarawy.

Massimo Ambrosini has shaken off a knock to start in midfield.

Daniele De Rossi, Federico Balzaretti and Maarten Stekelenburg are all injured.

Simone Perrotta, Michael Bradley and Dodo step into the midfield with Erik Lamela and Francesco Totti supporting Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.
