Daniel Alves recalled for Barcelona while Kaká could be handed Milan start
Daniel Alves has been recalled for Barcelona’s Champions League tie with Milan.
Manager Gerardo Martino rested the full-back, as well as Gerard Piqué and Alexis Sánchez, for the weekend draw at Osasuna.
Alves is joined in the squad by fellow Brazilians Adriano and Neymar. All three are expected to feature.
Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri could hand Kaká his first San Siro start since returning to the Rossoneri. Robinho is also included, but will likely be a substitute. Goalkeeper Gabriel, who started against Udinese on Saturday, is not on Milan’s Champions League squad list, so misses out.
