A minute of silence remembering the recently deceased Paolo Rossi before the match got underway.
Injuries and woodwork were the themes in this 2-2 tie.
No less than 4 times Milan hit the crossbar and post.
Gabbia left the pitch early with what looks like a few weeks of layoff. Later Bennacer seemed to strain his hamstring and may be facing a few weeks off too. Kalulu looked promising again, this time coming in relief for the injured Gabbia.
Parma took a 2-0 lead with questionable marking in both cases.
An offside after VAR review denied Castillejo another goal when it was 0-1.
Leao and Hauge came on at the half to turn things around but both were mostly ineffective or poor.
It was left to Theo to score twice. His pace was sorely needed to break the Parma defensive line. Otherwise Milan struggled to break through and Parma isolated the ball carrier well and overloaded the player well.
The fixture list remains very busy and with injuries piling up the next few weeks will present a big challenge in maintaining the unbeaten streak.
