In the latest Serie A battle, who are the main players and key battles to watch out for as AC Milan take on Parma away? Below we take a look at the most likely head to heads that will decide the game in the Ennio Tardini this Saturday afternoon.
H2H Key Areas
Centre Midfield vs Centre Midfield
Juraj Kucka vs Frank Kessie
At 34, Juraj Kucka might be older in years, but his energy and grit remain. As a player who will no doubt look to break up play, and also get on the end of any loose ball, Kessie will need to keep an eye on him and come out stronger to keep the Milan midfield free to play.
Left Midfield vs Right Back
Gervinho vs Pierre Kalulu
With 4 goals and 1 assist in the Serie A, Gervinho is an ongoing threat for any defense. It won’t be surprising to see him running directly at players this weekend, and with Calabria out, it will be a difficult test for Pierre Kalulu going up against one of the league’s best. His work rate and agility won’t be an issue here, but the experience and pace could be too much for the young right back.
Left Forward vs Right Back
Ante Rebic vs Andrea Conti
Conti will not want to play badly in this game, with every point to prove Pioli wrong in letting him go. Rebic has made a very slow return back to action after his last injury scare, with Milan missing his power and aggression going forward, this game will be a chance for him to find more goals and assists but sharpness needs to be better.
