AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is set to leave Alexandre Pato on the bench for tonight's Champions League clash with Anderlecht.

Pato sat out Saturday's draw against Napoli, with even M'Baye Niang preferred ahead of the Brazilian as a second-half substitute.

Tuttosport says Allegri is set to keep Pato in the dugout for tonight's crucial European tie with Anderlecht.
