Probable lineup vs. Parma (4-3-3):— Milan Eye (@MilanEye) April 19, 2019
Donnarumma; Conti, Zapata, Romagnoli, Rodriguez; Kessie, Bakayoko, Calhanoglu; Suso, Piatek, Borini [Sky]
Milan travel to Parma with most of the focus this week on the fall-out from Tiémoué Bakayoko and Franck Kessie holding up Francesco Acerbi’s shirt after the win over Lazio and the sustained freak-out it caused among the Italian footballing authorities. It sounds like the pair have been fined and that will be the end of it, but at this point, who knows what exactly what else will happen.
As for on the pitch matters, it appears that Gigio Donnarumma is fit enough to start the match, but Alessio Romagnoli and Lucas Paquetà will not be fit enough to play. Mattia Caldara is also reportedly getting near match fitness, but it doesn’t sound like Gennaro Gattuso has any plans to have him play until he’s 100% ready to go.
Parma have only won once in their last ten matches, as they seem to be coming back to earth after a good start to the Serie A season. They are, however, coming off of back-to-back scoreless draws, and this team needs points if they are to avoid being sucked into the relegation battle down at the bottom of the table. Expect them to put everyone behind the ball and try and force Milan to try and break them down.
Can Milan do enough to try and get all three points on the road? Or will Parma force an upset? Let us know what you think in the comments.
