AC Milan bring Mario Balotelli back into the starting XI to face Palermo this afternoon.
AC Milan are able to restore Mario Balotelli to the starting XI for this afternoon's Serie A clash with Palermo.
Balotelli returned from injury to score at Genoa last week from the bench, but was ineligible for the trip to Barcelona in the Champions League in midweek.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri is without Kevin Constant through suspension and switches Mattia de Sciglio to cover at full-back.
Philippe Mexes is not risked in central defence, with Daniele Bonera picked ahead of Mario Yepes to partner Cristian Zapata.
New Palermo boss Guiseppe Sannino is without a host of first-team players including Fabrizio Miccoli, Abel Hernandez and Andrea Dossena.
Paulo Dybala leads the line in attack, with support coming from Josip Ilicic.
Milan: Abbiati, Abate, Bonera, Zapata, De Sciglio, Flamini, Montolivo, Muntari, Boateng, Balotelli, El Shaarawy
Palermo: Sorrentino, Munoz, Von Bergen, Aronica, Morganella, Arevalo Rios, Donati, Kurtic, Garcia, Ilicic, Dybala
Result: Palermo concede late >
