Milan have Robinho with Maxi Lopez, plus Sulley Ali Muntari gets his debut against Vincenzo Iaquinta’s Cesena.
The Rossoneri are fresh from thrashing Arsenal 4-0 in the Champions League, but face a tricky trip to Cesena on the artificial turf of the Stadio Manuzzi.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s three-match ban only applies to Serie A, so he is out along with Alexandre Pato, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Alessandro Nesta, Philippe Mexes, Clarence Seedorf, Rodney Strasser, Alexander Merkel, Mario Yepes, Gennaro Gattuso, Alberto Aquilani and Antonio Cassano.
Cesena miss Djokovic, Vangelis Moras and Steve Von Bergen, but above all their confidence is low after they were leading 2-0 against 10-man Lazio only to lose 3-2.
