Players to Watch

Gervinho

The evergreen Ivory Coast international is always the troublemaker when facing Parma. His ability to break on the counter and his good finishing will be the usual threat. Hope fully, Calabria’s solid form continues and he keeps the former Arsenal and AS Roma winger quiet. If he can be cut out of the game Milan can dominate from the midfield up..

Romagnoli

The captain will have an important role to play commanding his defence and will need another performance like the one against Sampdoria to convince the fans he is finally back. The centre back will also need to stifle the tricky Karamoh and the powerful Cornelius alongside Gabbia to ensure that Donnarumma has few shots to actually save.

Rebic

Rebic will need to be the deciding factor in this fixture. Milan have done well to score without Ibrahimovic and the likes of Kessie and Castillejo have stepped up but Rebic will need to make an impact now. The attacker looks uncomfortable as the no. 9 and much better on the wing but he will have to break the duck if Milan want a chance against a difficult Parma side.

Prediction: Milan 2 — 1 Parma
