Out of the picture in the race for the Scudetto and unlikely to win this season’s Champions League, AC Milan’s best hopes of winning silverware this season would be if they could land the Coppa Italia, and on Thursday night they face a banana-skin match at home to minnows Reggina that everyone expects the Rossoneri to win.

After a poor start to the 2012/13 season, AC Milan are finally picking up some form with four wins in their last five matches in all competitions. Massimo Allegri’s charges have risen up to 7th in the Serie A table, and they’ll be hoping this recent upturn continues when Reggina, 17th in Serie B, arrive at the San Siro.
Milan will likely make wholesale changes to their starting XI.
Nigel de Jong is a certain absentee having ruptured his Achillies tendon during Milan’s 4-2 win over Torino last weekend, while red-hot striker Stephan El Shaarawy is likely to be rested after reviving the Rossoneri’s season in the past few months.
The buzz in Milan is that French starlet M’Baye Niang is set to get a rare start. The highly-rated 17-year-old moved to the San Siro last summer from Ligue 1 outfit Caen despite spending the summer on trial at the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton, and hopes are high that, against Reggina, Niang can open his scoring account.
While Niang is set to start, there appears to be plenty of confusion over Alexandre Pato. Pato has been left out the Milan squad due to his long-standing muscular injuries, however the Brazilian’s forward agent has claimed the striker is 100% fit leading to rumours that Pato may be on the way out of the Italian giants.
Reggina got through to this stage of the competition after beating Chievo in the previous round, however few expect the Serie B strugglers to claim another major scalp against Milan.
Milan loanee Gianmarino Comi is Reggina’s leading forward with six goals in 14 matches, while fellow Milan loanee Rodrigo Ely should also play for the Amaranto.
Although Milan are tipped to win the match, an avalanche of goals is perhaps less likely. Punters looking for a value bet may consider betting on less than 2.5 goals in the cup tie.
