Carnago, Italy:

Paolo Maldini expects to play for AC Milan in his eighth European Cup final next week against Liverpool.

The 38-year-old defender, who has agreed to a one-year contract extension, last played in his team's 3-2 loss to Manchester United in the first leg of the Champions League semifinals last month.
