Sports Mole looks ahead to AC Milan's Serie A trip to already relegated Pescara.

It's not been the season that Pescara would have hoped for when they were promoted to the Italian top flight last year as champions of Serie B.

Heading into Wednesday's home clash against AC Milan, the relegated Dolphins have just six wins to their name - four of which have been achieved in front of their own supporters at the Stadio Adriatico. They've also conceded 74 goals, which is more than any other Serie A side.

For the visit of Milan, Lazio loanee Giuseppe Sculli is likely to start as a lone centre-forward, with skipper Emmanuel Cascione featuring in an advanced midfield role.

Meanwhile, Milan have still not secured their place in the next season's Champions League. They are currently third and hold a four-point advantage over nearest challengers Fiorentina, so three points against Pescara would all but seal their spot in Europe's top competition.

Former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli will start up front, while Brazilian attacker Robinho is also pushing for a recall.
