The veteran attacker has mainly been warming the bench in the 2011-12 campaign, but is expected to feature from the start versus the Rossoneri in the cup midweek

Juventus coach Antonio Conte is ready to give Alessandro Del Piero the chance to prove his worth in the upcoming Coppa Italia semi-final second leg against AC Milan on Tuesday, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The 37-year-old attacker has been struggling to get regular action for the Bianconeri in the 2011-12 campaign, but will supposedly feature from the start in Turin.

Del Piero is expected to form an attacking partnership with Montenegro international Mirko Vucinic in the second leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.

It will be only the seventh time this season that Del Piero will feature from the start. He also started in the first meeting between the two teams on February 8.
The Turin side recorded a 2-1 victory in the first leg of the Italian cup tie at San Siro and will be looking to successfully defend their lead in the return at Juventus Stadium on Tuesday, kicking off at 20.45CET.
