AC Milan Vs. Juventus, 2012 Serie A: Lineups

Well, it's finally here, the moment we've all been waiting for, the clash we've been anticipating: Milan - Juventus. Top of the table vs second-place. A thrilling encounter at the San Siro.

Or at least, it had the potential to be exciting. But then Antonio Conte had to go and put pen to the lineup card. The Juve coach once again trotted out his 3-5-2 lineup, and has made the, shall we say, interesting decision to start Quagliarella and Boriello up top together.

Max Allegri sticks with his 4-3-1-2 formation, although injuries force him to use Emanuelson in the trequartista role, with both Kevin-Prince Boateng and Clarence Seedorf injured. Mexes replaces Alessandro Nesta in defence, and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic still suspended, Robinho and Pato lead the attack.
