Milan face Lazio in the second leg of this Coppa Italia semi-final tie at San Siro on Wednesday night, after the first leg finished 0-0 at the Stadio Olimpico in February. 

I Rossoneri will be without midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura, who underwent knee surgery in November that ruled him out for the rest of the season.

They were boosted by the return of Gianluigi Donnarumma against Parma on Saturday after he recovered from a thigh strain. Lucas Paqueta also returned from injury to be named on the substitutes bench.

Here's how Gattuso's side could line up come kick off.
