Sports Mole previews Sunday's Serie A meeting between AC Milan and Palermo.

AC Milan will be looking to put the disappointment of their midweek Champions League exit behind them when they host Palermo in Serie A on Sunday.

Milan saw their two-goal lead from the first leg wiped out courtesy of Barcelona's 4-0 win in the second leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday evening.

Palermo come into the match needing points to ease their relegation fears. They are five points adrift of safety following their 2-1 home defeat to relegation rivals Siena last week.

Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri will have to make changes to his lineup, as full-back Kevin Constant serves a one-match ban picked up in last week's 2-0 win at Genoa.

Allegri may opt to start Antonio Nocerino against his former club, while Giampaolo Pazzini could miss out with a bruised leg, with Mario Balotelli in line to replace him up front.

Palermo will be without Abel Hernandez and Andrea Mantovani as the pair continue to recover from long-term injuries.
