AC Milan host Parma tonight at 20:45. The Rossoneri will be without Kjaer and Ibrahimovic but determined to get another victory.
After having secured the lead in Europa League group H and progress to the next stage, AC Milan hope to record another victory in the league and consolidate the first place. However, AC Milan vs Parma will not be an easy match.
Parma stopped Inter at the San Siro and the Rossoneri will be without two key players like Simon Kjaer and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Nevertheless, absences have not been a problem so far this season.
For Milan vs Parma, Pioli will return to his ‘normal’ eleven. Gigio Donnarumma will be back in goal. Gabbia replaces Kajer alongside Romagnoli while Theo Hernandez and Davide Calabria complete the back four. A very dynamic defence which must be able to cope with the speed of Karamoh and Gervinho.
After a couple of games out, Ismael Bennacer has fully recovered and will start from the first minute. Bennacer is a fundamental pawn in the Rossoneri midfield even though Sandro Tonali was able to replace him perfectly. The Algerian and Franck Kessie will form the midfield dam.
Pioli has only one doubt in attack. Once again Jense Peter Hauge was lethal with his dazzling dribbling in Europa League but Samu Castillejo seems favorite to start from the first minute in Milan vs Parma. Brahim Diaz will play on the other wing and Calhangolu in the attacking midfielder role. Saelemaekers has been left out of the match squad because of a slight injury. With Zlatan out, it’s Rebic who leads the attack.
AC MILAN (4-2-3-1): Donnarumma; Calabria, Gabbia, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessiè, Bennacer; Castillejo (Hauge), Brahim Diaz, Calhanoglu; Rebic.
PARMA (4-3-1-2): Sepe; Busi, Bruno Alves, Osorio, Iacoponi; Hernani, Scozzarella, Kurtic; Brunetta; Cornelius, Gervinho.
