Parma v AC Milan – Sunday 27th October 2pm kick-off – Live on ESPN
Parma host AC Milan in the televised Serie A fixture at 2pm on Sunday. Both sides will be hoping to be a bit more consistent than their early season form where it has very much been win, lose and draw for both teams.
Milan have their injury problems which have not helped them so far, but Mario Balotelli should be back in league action for the rossoneri and his presence up front should give them more firepower.
Parma have Antonio Cassano in their ranks. The skilful attacker is entertaining and unpredictable, so with him and Balotelli on the field, it should be an interesting contest to watch.
Milan were in European action in midweek and battled to a 1-1 draw against Barcelona. Will that have taken some much needed energy out of the Milan side or can they reproduce that kind of performance to get a result in this one?
They are favourites with the bookmakers, but they are still yet to win away from home in Serie A. This certainly won’t be a straight forward fixture for them with the gialloblu in good goalscoring form, having scored 11 goals in their last four games.
