Milan field young promise Jose Mauri to face Serie B side Crotone in tonight's Coppa Italia match.
It starts at 8pm, UK time. The Rossoneri will likely not underestimate their rivals, who are currently second in Serie B and are serious candidates for promotion next year.
Even so, Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic will take the opportunity to test some of his more infrequently used midfielders, forming a line with Mauri, Andrea Poli and Antonio Nocerino.
Milan starting XI: Abbiati; Calabria, Mexes, Zapata, De Sciglio; Poli, J.Mauri, Nocerino; Suso, Luiz Adriano, Honda. Coach: Sinisa Mihajlovic
Crotone starting XI: Cordaz; Yao, Cremonesi, Ferrari; Balasa, Barberis, Paro, Martella; De Giorgio, Palladino, Torromino. Coach: Ivan Juric
