AC Milan reached the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia in emphatic fashion with a 4-1 victory over Cagliari earlier this month. Stefano Pioli’s side followed up this impressive display with a 3-0 win away at Empoli to stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to six games.

The Rossoneri now face the last side to defeat them from when Atalanta secured a thrilling 3-2 win over Milan in December thanks to a 95th-minute winner from Luis Muriel. Since that victory, Atalanta have been in excellent form, winning five games and drawing just once, including a comfortable 3-1 win over Sassuolo in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia.

Atalanta are nine points and three places behind Milan in the Seria A table and are seeking to win the tournament for just the second time in their history. Can they best of their Lombardy rivals once more? Or will Milan march on to the last four of the Coppa Italia?

Here's how they line up: 

AC Milan XI: Maignan, Calabria, Gabbia, Theo, Jimenez, Musah, Reijnders, Loftus-Cheek, Pulisic, Jovic, Leão. 

Atalanta XI: Carnesecchi, Scalvini, Djimsiti, Kolasinac, Holm, De Roon, Ederson, Ruggeri, Koopmeiners, Miranchuk, De Ketelaere
