Alessandro Nesta is out of Milan's trip to Fiorentina, joining Andrea Pirlo and the suspended Antonio Cassano, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns.
The veteran defender has been suffering from an inflammation of the right knee and underwent a personalised training schedule over the last two days.
Nesta is not even in the squad travelling to Florence for the Sunday night game, left behind along with Pirlo, Massimo Ambrosini, Daniele Bonera, Marek Jankulovski, Pippo Inzaghi and the suspended Cassano.
There is a boost for Max Allegri, as Ibrahimovic's two-match ban has now expired, so he returns to the side.
Milan squad: Abbiati, Amelia, Piscitelli, Abate, Antonini, Oddo, Papastathopoulos, Thiago Silva, Zambrotta, Yepes, Boateng, Emanuelson, Flamini, Gattuso, Merkel, Seedorf, Strasser, Van Bommel, Ibrahimovic, Pato, Robinho
