AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri will be without the services of Alexandre Pato who is still nursing a muscle injury but Thiago Silva and Kevin-Prince Boateng trained with the rest of the first team and could be available on Wednesday.
Massimo Ambrosini is not yet ready to return and underwent a personalised training programme while Daniele Bonera will miss out after picking up a red card in the Rossoneri's 1-1 draw with Bologna last weekend.
Meanwhile, Genoa sacked Alberto Malesani for the second time this term after the club's 4-1 setback to Siena on Sunday. The club announced on Monday that Luigi De Canio will take the helm for the remaining five matches.
De Canio will not be able to call on Giandomenico Mesto and Marco Rossi who are both suspended.
The club will also be forced to play their last two home games of the season behind closed doors after their supporters caused a 40-minute delay when they threw missiles and fireworks onto the pitch on Sunday.

The temperamental Swede leads Serie A in scoring with 24 goals. The striker salvaged a draw for the Rossoneri last weekend with a late goal and should have no problem finding the back of the net against a porous Genoa back line.
The Argentine has 17 league goals to his name this term but has not scored in his last two games. The 30-year-old will need to lead the charge if Genoa are to end their miserable winless run.
Milan need all three points on Wednesday following their disappointing display at the weekend and relief will come in the form of Genoa who have struggled mightily in the last two months.
