Defensive worries cloud AC Milan's trip to Juve

MILAN, April 10 (Reuters) - AC Milan look set to face old rivals Juventus (1830 GMT) with a second-string defence in their Serie A match on Saturday.

Kakha Kaladze is suspended while Alessandro Nesta is appealing a two-game ban for his dismissal in the 2-1 defeat by Atalanta two weeks ago. A decision is expected on Friday.

If Nesta loses the appeal, fifth-placed Milan may have to rely on back-up defenders Giuseppe Favalli, Daniele Bonera and Cafu alongside Paolo Maldini. Right back Massimo Oddo recently had knee surgery and left back Marek Jankulovski is injured.

Carlo Ancelotti's side, four points behind fourth-placed Fiorentina, have just six games left to clamber into the final Champions League qualifying spot.

Juventus, two above Fiorentina in third, had their outside hopes of a title challenge ended by a 3-2 defeat at Palermo last weekend.

Czech midfielder Pavel Nedved had to spend the night in a Palermo hospital following a nasty clash of heads, and while he has returned to training he is not a certain starter in Turin.

'I feel better. I'm a little weak, but that's normal,' Nedved told Juventus Channel.

'I'll try to make Saturday's game, even though I'll have to be 100 percent fit to play, otherwise it'll be better if a fitter team mate takes my place.'

In the weekend's other big match, leaders Inter Milan host Fiorentina on Sunday (1830) with top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic again doubtful after recently returning to training after knee trouble.

Champions Inter have a four-point advantage over second-placed AS Roma, who visit Udinese on Sunday (1300).

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti, who previously managed Udinese, is hopeful striker Francesco Totti can recover from a thigh injury.

In the standout game at the bottom, Cagliari visit relegation rivals Livorno with the winner set to leap clear of the drop zone.
