Nesta and Pirlo back for Milan

Max Allegri has confirmed that Alessandro Nesta and Andrea Pirlo are back available for Milan ahead of this weekend's game against Parma.

Milan have suffered without the veteran pair, drawing each of their last two games in Serie A.

"Luckily a long week is over, one in which many things have been said and written," Allegri said. "It almost seemed as though we were third or fourth, but there is only one team at the top.

"From tomorrow onwards the Scudetto will be decided so now there is no possibility of making mistakes.

"This mustn't make us nervous, but conscious that we have our destiny in our hands.

"Parma have great technique with Amauri and Crespo. They are a great team with a lot of goals in the legs of people like Giovinco, Candreva, Valiani and Dzemaili.

"Perhaps, it's not a fundamental game, but it is decisive for the story of this season."
