Line-ups: Milan-Torino

Krzysztof Piatek starts up front as Milan look to continue their unbeaten run in 2020 against a desperate Torino arriving after a heavy defeat to Atalanta.

The Coppa Italia quarter-final kicks off at 19:45 GMT

The Poland international will start up top with Ante Rebic in a 4-4-2, when Stefano Pioli has decided to let Zlatan Ibrahimovic rest on the bench against the Granata.

He will be sitting next to Lucas Paqueta, who is part of the squad, but left out as Rade Krunic and Ismael Bennacer will play in the middle of the park, with Giacomo Bonaventura and Samu Castillejo on the sides.

Simon Kjaer will partner Alessio Romagnoli in the heart of the defence, ahead of Gianluigi Donnarumma, whilst Theo Hernandez will keep his place at the left-back and Andrea Conti starts at the right.

Torino arrive at San Siro after a gruesome evening ending in a 7-0 defeat against the Dea last fixture and will play a 3-4-2-1 to try and get the most out of Andrea Belotti up top.

Alex Berenguer and Simone Verdi will play behind the Italy international, as Tomas Rincon is back in the line-up to lead the midfield with help from 23-year-old Sasa Lukic. Rincon was suspended at the weekend and the Granata will be happy to have their midfield terrier back in the first XI.

Lorenzo De Silvestri and Ola Aina take place on the wingbacks, as a defensive trio consisting of Armando Izzo, Nicolas N’Koulou and Bremer try to shut down an eager Piatek in front of Salvatore Sirigu in goal.

Torino have lost back-to-back league games and needed penalties to overcome Genoa in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia, whilst Milan are confident after winning their last four games – including a 3-0 win over SPAL in the cup.

Milan: Donnarumma; Conti, Kjaer, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Castillejo, Krunic, Bennacer, Bonaventura; Rebic, Piatek

Torino: Sirigu; Izzo, Nkoulou, Bremer; De Silvestri, Rincon, Lukic, Aina; Verdi, Berenguer; Belotti
