Balotelli returns to boost Milan's European hopes, Juventus await title

Milan: Mario Balotelli will return from suspension to boost AC Milan's Champions League hopes when it hosts Catania in Serie A on Sunday.

Balotelli's ban for picking up his fourth booking of the season was extended to three matches after he insulted a match official. It was later reduced to two on appeal.

Without him, Milan has scored only one goal and is in danger of missing out on third place and a spot in the Champions League qualifying round.
