Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng
AC Milan are in a position to make it very difficult for Barca because some key players are returning.
Midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng is back. He holds the midfield and the attack together. He had been out since 15 February because of thigh problems.
Defender Alessandro Nesta, who had been out since 4 February, is also returning. Boateng and Nesta were on the bench this weekend, with Boateng coming on in the second half.
Midfielder Clarence Seedorf is taking it slow after being out since Feb. 15. He was on the bench but did not play Saturday. His status for today is uncertain. Robinho injured his ankle and has been sidelined since March 14.
The bad news for the Rossoneri: Thiago Silva went off with a thigh injury this Saturday when AC Milan beat AC Roma 2:1. Mark Van Bommel also missed the game because of a back problem.
