Allegri's men will be aiming to maintain their recent form after winning their last three fixtures in all competitions, and history is on their side against Wednesday's opponents



Abate, Nesta, Yepes, Antonini
Nocerino, Van Bommel, Aquilani
Ibrahimovic, Cassano

Zaccardo, Paletta, Lucarelli, Gobbi
Biabiany, Morrone, Jadid, Modesto

The home side will still be without Brazilian duo Alexandre Pato and Thiago Silva through injury; the former has not featured since September 21 against Udinese. Long-term absentee Mathieu Flamini continues his recuperation, but Clarence Seedorf should return for the Rossoneri after a spell out with a knee problem.

Captain Massimo Ambrosini's place may be at risk after being hooked at half-time in the astounding comeback against Lecce, with Alberto Aquilani an option and Kevin-Prince Boateng is likely to be included after his heroics on Sunday. Gennaro Gattuso has however been devastated by the news that an eye problem will keep him out for up to six months.

Parma's Franco Colomba should have a full squad to choose from with, Hernan Crespo likely to return to the squad. The Argentine is unlikely to start the match but could well feature from the bench after recovering from a thigh problem.

  • Both AC Milan and Parma have won three games in Serie A this season.
  • Antonio Cassano and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have scored a total of 15 goals against Parma in their careers.

Editor's Prediction

Milan's recent form suggests that they will have too much for Parma on Wednesday with both home advantage and the champions coming off the back of three straight wins filling them with confidence as they look to climb the table.
