Alas, it appears that staying uninjured and scoring against Chievo Verona was simply too much for Alexandre Pato. He now misses the match against Genoa with flu, so Robinho will step into the Milan starting lineup in his place. Max Allegri continues to field his preferred 4-3-1-2 position, with Kevin-Prince Boateng playing just behind the strikers. Also of note: Allegri really seems to favor those with "A"s in their names. Sorry, Carlos Tevez, guess you just won't be welcomed at Milan.
Genoa are without top-scorer Rodrigo Palacio, and will set up in a 4-4-2 in an attempt to counter the forward threat from the visiting rossoneri.
Genoa Starting XI (4-4-2): Sébastien Frey; Andreas Granqvist, Dario Dainelli, Kahka Kaladze, Giandomenico Mesto; Miguel Veloso, Kevin Constant, Marco Rossi, Emiliano Moretti; Lucas Pratto, Boško Jankovic
AC Milan Starting XI (4-3-1-2): Marco Amelia; Ignazio Abate, Martin Yepes, Thiago Silva, Luca Antonini; Alberto Aquilani, Massimo Ambrosini, Antonio Nocerino; Kevin-Prince Boateng; Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho
