ROME, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- AC Milan's shaky form continued when they were held to a 1-1 draw by ParmaParma in an Italian Serie A game on Saturday.
Stephan El Shaarawy, who scored a brace for Milan in their midweek 2-0 win over Cagliari, put Massimiliano Allegri's side ahead early in the second half before Daniele Galloppa equalised in the 66th minute to earn Roberto Donadoni's side a point, which leaves them just a point behind their visitors.
Allegri was left disappointed as his side wasted some chances to win the game.
"It's a shame we didn't win, as we could comfortably have taken home all three points, but didn't finish off the game and were punished on a set play. It wasn't a bad performance, but we had to win and did not manage it," he said.
The game opened up in the second half, with El Shaarawy putting Milan in front in the 50th minute with a bold run into the penalty area which ended in him sliding his shot beyond the reach of Nicola Pavarini into the far corner.
Kevin-Prince Boateng missed the chance to make it two just minutes later when he found space inside the penalty area and was picked out by Krkic, but he headed just wide of Pavarini's goal.
Parma responded with a dangerous cross which Christian Abbiati pushed out to Musacci at the far post, but he was unable to find a telling touch as the goalkeeper recovered to defend his goal.
In the 66th minute, Parma levelled with Galloppa's shot taking a slight deflection off a team-mate to nestle in the bottom corner of Abbiati's goal.
