Having finished 7th in the Italian Serie A standings, Milan require a Coppa Italia triumph in order avoid a third straight season without European football. The untested manager Cristian Brocchi has seen the Rossoneri show little improvement in his six matches in charge with just two wins to his name. They succumbed to a 1-3 defeat at home against AS Roma last weekend and have no chance to beat Juventus with a such poor performance.
Cristian Brocchi will be missing left-back Luca Antonelli with a leg injury while right-back Ignazio Abate is listed as doubtful. M'Baye Niang could be in contention after almost three months out. Alessio Romagnoli and Davide Calabria are expected to start in midfield, while Giacomo Bonaventura and Keisuke Honda are likely support Carlos Bacca and Mario Balotelli in attack.
Juventus team claimed a record-equalling fifth consecutiveScudetto this season and signed off on their 2015/16 Italian Serie A campaign with an emphatic 5-0 win at home against Sampdoria last weekend. They have won 24 of their last 25 league fixtures before a surprising defeat to Hellas Verona two weeks ago.
Allegri is unable to count upon key centre-back Leonardo Bonucci due to suspension while midfielder Sami Khedira is still out through injury. Patrice Evra and Alex Sandro fighting out for a spot on the left flank, while Stefano Sturaro could be given a start in the middle of the park. Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic are likely to lead the line. Claudio Marchisio is a long-term absentee.
In recent meeting between the two sides, Juventus has won 7 consecutive matches. The Rossoneri lost both encounters with Juventus this season, going down 1-0 in Turin before a 2-1 defeat at San Siro.
