Can I use a 7th gen processor on a 6th gen motherboard?

I've been trying to build a custom PC on my own so i went for a search.

I found the MSI B150 Gaming M3 motherboard, i went through the specifications.

It supports the 6th gen CPU, it isn't declared that it only supports it but only that it supports.

The only processor i found available was the 7th gen.

So am asking if i can buy the 7th gen and use it on the motherboard?

Will it work?

Wouldn't there be any problems?

You can only use the processors that the MSI BIOS supports:
