Line-ups: Parma-Milan

Milan rotate their squad and give Bojan Krkic his first start for today’s trip to the Stadio Tardini.

The Rossoneri finally got their first home win of the season midweek against Cagliari and hope to keep up that momentum in the 17.00 UK time kick-off.

Alexandre Pato, Mathieu Flamini, Djamel Mesbah, Sulley Muntari, Rodney Strasser and Didac Vila are out of action.

Cristian Zapata and Kevin-Prince Boateng return from suspension to start with Stephan El Shaarawy, who has scored three goals in his last two games.

This game is played on President Silvio Berlusconi’s birthday.

Parma Coach Roberto Donadoni faces his past and a club that many have suggested may well be in his future too.

The Ducali are without Fabiano Santacroce, Raffaele Palladino and the suspended Jaime Valdes, but Aleandro Rosi returns from a ban and Greek international Sotiris Ninis is given a deeper midfield role.

It was raining all morning over the Tardini, but the pitch was protected by plastic sheeting, so the pitch should be in good condition.

Parma: Mirante; Zaccardo, Paletta, Lucarelli; Rosi, Musacci, Ninis, Galloppa, Gobbi; Pabon, Amauri

Milan: Abbiati; Abate, Zapata, Yepes, De Sciglio; De Jong, Ambrosini, Nocerino; Boateng, Bojan, El Shaarawy
