Team News

  • Pizarro is fully fit once again, while Aquilani is suspended, so the two midfielders should trade places.
  • Toni is favoured over El Hamdaoui to partner Jovetic up front.
  • Fiorentina just completed a deal for Momo Sissoko from PSG, but the midfielder will not make his debut against Parma.
  • Biabiany is back available and should play on the right flank, so Rosi will probably sit on the bench.
  • Donadoni is short on defenders after Zaccardo left the club, with Santacroce working hard to recover from injury.
  • Therefore, Benalouane will start and Coda will be the only substitute in the role, having moved from Udinese.

Prediction

  • Fiorentina have only picked up one point in their last four matches, and their seasonal goal has quickly switched from a Champions League dream to a race for 5th place.
  • Parma's home unbeaten streak ended against Napoli, but Donadoni's team are still comfortably sitting in the top half of the table, well away from any relegation fight.
  • Since the hosts have less to lose now, and Parma are not actually fighting for anything, this match could be an open game with plenty of goal scoring chances and entertainment. The two coaches have encouraged their teams to play good football for much of the season, so this will be a good chance to compare their work.
