Cassano will play, say Milan

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has rubbished speculation that the Rossoneri will only field one striker against Barcelona.

Given the absences of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Pippo Inzaghi, it was being suggested that the Italian champions would field a 4-3-2-1 system.

Galliani, however, has told Sky Sport Italia that such a formation doesn't fit in with the philosophy of the San Siro giants.

"Our history is 4-3-1-2," the official noted on Tuesday afternoon ahead of the Champions League clash.

"We've always played with two strikers and we'll play in that way this evening. Therefore, Antonio Cassano will be on the pitch."

The Italian will partner Alexandre Pato in attack, with Kevin Prince Boateng expected to create behind them.

Meanwhile, there is speculation that Ibra's muscle injury could see him ruled out of action for the next month.
