Bojan Krkic was handed a third successive start for the Rossoneri in a surprising move by Massimiliano Allegri, who dumped Giampaolo Pazzini to the bench once more.
The former Barcelona starlet has flopped since moving to Serie A, with a disappointing spell with Roma last season being the first warning sign.
Milan decided to take the plunge, snapping up the 22-year-old for the season in the hope that some of the outrageous potential that we saw with the Blaugrana could be fulfilled with the Diavoli.
To be handed a start in the derby was a huge show of faith from Allegri, but Bojan sadly failed to return the favour, fluffing his lines when several golden opportunities presented themselves to him.
Goalless in six matches so far, the signs are not good, but given that Pazzini appears to be equally useless and Milan's Brazilian duo, Robinho and Alexandre Pato, have patchy injury records, there will be plenty more opportunities for the youngster.
