Official: Milan vs. Parma starting XIs – Pioli changes all but one player from midweek win

By Oliver Fisher -

As was expected, Stefano Pioli has made 10 changes to his starting XI from the team that beat Sparta Praha for the game against Parma.

Gianluigi Donnarumma will be back in goal, and in front of him will be Davide Calabria, Matteo Gabbia, Alessio Romagnoli and Theo Hernandez.

Ismael Bennacer will come back into the XI too as the Algerian rested for a whole week to get ready for this fixture. Next to him will be the irreplaceable Franck Kessie.

Behind the centre-forward Ante Rebic will be Samu Castillejo on the right, Brahim Diaz in the middle and Hakan Calhanoglu on the left. Alexis Saelemaekers is out, as the Belgian is not yet in top form.

Official Milan XI (4-2-3-1): G. Donnarumma; Calabria, Gabbia, Romagnoli, Theo Hernandez; Kessie, Bennacer; Castillejo, Diaz, Calhanoglu; Rebic.

Bench: A. Donnarumma, Tătăruşanu, Conti, Dalot, Duarte, Kalulu. Hauge, Krunić, Tonali, Colombo, Leão, Maldini.

Official Parma XI (4-3-3): Sepe; Iacoponi, Osorio, Bruno Alves, Gagliolo; Hernani, Brugman, Kurtic; Karamoh, Cornelius, Gervinho.
