Two Serie A titans battle in the second leg of the Coppa Italia when Juventus host AC Milan at Juventus Stadium on Tuesday.

Uruguyan defender Martin Caceres scored twice as Juventus defeated Milan in the first leg, 2-1, at the San Siro on Feb. 8.

AC Milan will need to come out firing if they expect to advance to the final, which will be a difficult task given the status of the roster.

Massimiliano Allegri's squad will be without several notable names: Robinho, Alexandre Pato, and Antonio Cassano up front, as well as midfielder Mark van Bommel and defenders Alessandro Nesta and Ignazio Abate.

It will be a tall order to defeat Juventus without such firepower. However, Kevin-Price Boateng might suit up for the match, and Philip Mexes and Clarence Seedorf are available.

Juventus have momentum heading into the match. After four straight draws, the Old Lady defeated Fiorentina 5-0 on Saturday.

Antonio Conte will still need to pressure the AC Milan defenders despite the goal, and away goal, advantage. Juventus is expected to have 37-year-old forward Alessandro Del Piero start and partner with Mirko Vucinic.

The match kicks off at 3:45 p.m. ET/7:45 p.m. GMT.

In the end, it should Juventus that escapes with a draw.
