Parma are currently in 16th place in the Serie A standings and have not been at their best this season. The away side was held to a 0-0 stalemate by Benevento in its previous game and needs to be at its best in this game.
AC Milan, on the other hand, are yet to win a game in the Serie A this season and have won 26 points from their 10 games. The Rossoneri have built an excellent squad under Stefano Pioli and are the favourites to win this match.

AC Milan are currently unbeaten in the Serie A and will be in no mood to relent against a Parma side that has underperformed this season. The Rossoneri have plenty of squad depth and have exceeded expectations this year.
Parma do have the likes of Gervinho and Andreas Cornelius in their ranks and can trouble Stefano Pioli's side this weekend. AC Milan have a superior squad, however, and hold the upper hand in this game.
