Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns from a three-match ban and Alexandre Pato has recovered from a muscle problem for Milan, while Roma has lost midfielders Daniele De Rossi and Simone Perrotta for the rest of the season due to three-match bans.

Milan holds an eight-point over five-time defending champion Inter Milan and is nine points in front of Napoli with three rounds remaining in the Italian league.

On Sunday, Inter hosts Fiorentina and Napoli can clinch its return to the Champions League at Lecce, which is struggling to avoid relegation.
