MILAN (AP) -Mario Balotelli is expected to make his official debut for AC Milan against Udinese on Sunday.

Balotelli finalized a ?20 million ($27 million) transfer from Manchester City on Thursday, returning to Italy after a turbulent 2 1/2 years in the Premier League.

Milan striker Robinho says "Mario Balotelli is a great player and will definitely help the squad. We're happy ... let's hope he does well for Milan.''

Defending champion Juventus will travel to Chievo Verona, eager to get back on track after a disappointing start to 2013, which has seen it win only twice in seven matches.
