By Nikita Fesyukov -

AC Milan will face Juventus this Friday in Serie A and Vincenzo Montella is expected to make a couple of changes last round’s encounter at home against Chievo.

According to today’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport, the Milan coach is still unsure about who to start alongside Alessio Romagnoli in the defence. As of now, however, Gabriel Paletta is the favorite over Cristian Zapata. Meanwhile Ignazio Abate is still out, with Mattia De Sciglio ready to regain the captain’s armband and the right back position.

In the midfield Montella is looking to make several changes. Juraj Kucka is set to replace Manuel Locatelli in the starting lineup, while Mario Pasalic will substitute Andrea Bertolacci. Jose Sosa will move to the regista role in between the Slavic duo.

In the attack the trident Suso-Bacca-Deulofeu is set to be confirmed. Gazzetta reports that Suso is working hard to be ready for the match at the Juventus stadium, while Tuttosport is more sure and says that Suso will be available.

Probable lineup against Juventus (4-3-3):

Donnarumma; De Sciglio, Paletta, Romagnoli, Vangioni; Kucka, Sosa, Pasalic; Suso, Bacca, Deulofeu
