AC Milan have not played in more than a week after their derby clash with Inter Milan was postponed last weekend following the death of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori.
Coach Gennaro Gattuso names an unchanged side to the one that started the cup game against Lazio on February 28.
Former Liverpool player Suso is among the starters.
Starting XI: Donnarumma, Calabria, Bonucci, Romagnoli, Rodriguez, Biglia, Bonaventura, Kessie, Calhanoglu, Suso, Cutrone

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger largely keeps faith with the side defeated at Brighton last weekend.
There are three changes to the team that started at the Amex Stadium.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible and Alex Iwobi is left out.
They are replaced by Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey.
Starting XI: Ospina, Chambers, Koscielny, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Ramsey, Wilshere, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Welbeck
