AC Milan Vs. Anderlecht, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

Massimiliano Allegri continues to struggle with keeping key players fit: Alexandre Pato, Robinho, and Riccardo Montolivo are all out of action for AC Milan v Anderlecht, while Ignazio Abate is only fit enough for the bench. As such, Allegri has gone for a Christmas tree formation, choosing Giampaolo Pazzini, his only fit striker, alone up top.

Anderlecht line up in a 4-2-3-1 with Sacha Kljestan and Lucas Biglia in the middle. They'll miss Milan Jovanović in front due to suspension, his place taken by Dieumerci Mbokani.

AC Milan Starting Lineup (4-3-2-1): Christian Abbiati; Luca Antonini, Philippe Mexes, Daniele Bonera, Mattia De Sciglio; Antonio Nocerino, Nigel De Jong, Mathieu Flamini; Urby Emanuelson, Kevin-Prince Boateng; Giampaolo Pazzini.

Substitutes from: Marco Amelia, Ignazio Abate, Mario Yepes, Kevin Constant, Massimo Ambrosini, Bojan Krkic, Stephan El Shaarawy
