AC Milan will put their title-chasing aspirations in Serie A to one side when they host Genoa in the Coppa Italia round of 16 on Thursday at 8pm (UK time).

The five-time winners of Italy’s most prestigious cup competition enter the tournament for the first time this season, hoping to end a 19-year wait for this particular trophy. Stefano Pioli’s men face a Genoa side 19th in the Serie A table, so Andriy Shevchenko may have one eye on this weekend’s crucial trip to high-flying Fiorentina. Still, wins beget confidence, and Genoa could certainly do with a confidence boost at the minute.

AC Milan team news

Simon Kjaer and Pietro Pellegri remain long-term absentees for Milan, with the former expected to miss the rest of the season after rupturing his ACL in early December. Meanwhile Franck Kessie, Fode Ballo-Toure and Ismael Bennacer are all away for this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, so Pioli may stick with the Tiemoue Bakayoko-Sandro Tonali midfield partnership that worked so well in the recent 3-0 win over Venezia. Alessio Romagnoli, Davide Calabria and Samu Castillejo are also expected to sit this one out.

AC Milan predicted XI: Mirante; Florenzi, Kalulu, Gabbia, Hernandez; Tonali, Bakayoko; Diaz, Maldini, Messias, Giroud.

Genoa team news

Nikola Maksimovic, Valon Behrami, Yayah Kallon, Domenico Criscito and Laurens Serpe have all been missing for Genoa since November-December and are not expected to feature here, with starting centre-back Davide Biraschi recently joining that quintet on the sidelines and adding to Shevchenko’s injury issues.

Genoa predicted XI: Sirigu, Ostigard, Bani, Vasquez; Cambiaso, Sturaro, Badelj, Melegoni, Fares; Pandev, Caicedo.

Scoreline prediction: AC Milan 2-0 Genoa
