Suspended Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng could earn his full debut for AC Milan on Saturday as they play guest to Empoli in the Serie A.

Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic is yet to hand the 28-year-old trequartista his debut start since his return to the club after leaving Schalke 04.

But it is highly expected that he will get his first start under the Serbian trainer who was under some amount of pressure before last weekend win.

Boateng came off the bench and produced one of his best moments for the Rossoneris as he raced to latch on to a Kucka well-tailored cross from the center area to score his second goal for Milan in 826 days apart.

Milan are sixth on the log and will be seeking for a win to push further up to enter into an European spot.
