Line-ups: Juventus-Milan

Juventus have Alessandro Matri, Sebastian Giovinco and Luca Marrone, as they welcome Stephan El Shaarawy’s Milan in tonight’s Coppa Italia Quarter-Final.

The winners of this clash in Turin, which kicks off at 19.45 GMT, will go on to face Lazio in the Semi-Final.

The Bianconeri rest Andrea Pirlo in favour of Under-21 international Luca Marrone, although the veteran was initially named in the starting XI.

Matri is also an ex-Milan man and partners Giovinco, as Fabio Quagliarella is suspended. Claudio Marchisio, Giorgio Chiellini, Simone Pepe and Nicklas Bendtner are injured.

Milan go to Turin without Robinho, Christian Abbiati, Djamel Mesbah, Mario Yepes, Kevin Constant, Daniele Bonera, Cristian Zapata, Sulley Muntari and Nigel De Jong.

Giampaolo Pazzini starts in attack as he will be suspended for Sunday’s trip to Sampdoria, partnered by El Shaarawy and Urby Emanuelson in a 4-3-3 formation.

Philippe Mexes returns from his Serie A ban, so Mattia De Sciglio moves to his habitual left-back position.

Kevin-Prince Boateng and Massimo Ambrosini get the nod in midfield ahead of Antonio Nocerino.

Juventus: Storari; Caceres, Bonucci, Barzagli; Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Marrone, Giaccherini, Isla; Matri, Giovinco

Juventus bench: Buffon, Branescu, Pogba, Vucinic, De Ceglie, Peluso, Padoin, Beltrame, Rugani, Pirlo

Milan: Amelia; Abate, Mexes, Acerbi, De Sciglio; Montolivo, Ambrosini, Boateng; Emanuelson, Pazzini, El Shaarawy
