The world has been turned on its head. AC Milan won a match at the San Siro and Massimiliano Allegri changed his preferred formation. That's right, the coach, most likely fearing that he and his suitcases would be shoved on an outbound train, stretched his mind and sent out a 4-3-3. And the rossoneri won! Imagine, using the players you have now in a formation that suits them, rather than trying to shoehorn them into a style played by those who have left the team, well...it just might get your side all three points. Then again, the visitors were Cagliari. This might negate all that was said.
So it's time for Milan to prove themselves once again, this time against Parma. The ducali aren't having the best of seasons -- turns out losing your top goal-scorer might cause a setback in your plans for European play. Who knew? Parma's one win came against Chievo, but the poor dears have also been forced to face Juventus and Napoli thus far. They did manage to hold both Fiorentina and Genoa to draws. But with two of this season's five goalscorers missing (all have scored just one goal), will Parma be able to find the net?
