Milan choose Alexandre Pato, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marco Amelia against Sergio Pellssier’s Chievo tonight.
The Rossoneri are fresh from an enthralling but unlucky 3-2 defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League, but must win to keep up with Serie A leaders Juventus.
Pato was on the bench in that midweek round, but is given the starting spot alongside Ibrahimovic and Kevin-Prince Boateng.
Goalkeeper Christian Abbiati is out with a shoulder injury and Alessandro Nesta a thigh strain, so Amelia and Mario Yepes step in.
It’s a special game for Yepes, who joined Milan from Chievo.
The Flying Donkeys hope to cause an upset at San Siro with Pellissier and Cyril Thereau leading the way.
Both Pellissier and Ibrahimovic are looking for their 100th Serie A goal.
