AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli has been able to name almost a complete first choice starting XI for this evening’s game against Parma.

Gianluigi Donnarumma in goal protected by a back four of Pierre Kalulu, Simon Kjaer, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez from right to left. Davide Calabria and Alessio Romagnoli will miss out through injury.
