Team News

  • Donadoni will stick with the 4-3-3 that faced Milan last week, despite the defeat suffered at the Meazza.
  • Paletta and Coda are favoured over Lucarelli to play as centre-backs.
  • The manager seems more confortable fielding Mesbah over Gobbi on the left flank when playing with a 4-man defence.
  • Two key players will not be available for Maran, with Almiron and Barrientos both out.
  • The winger would have been necessary to field a 4-2-3-1, so the coach will keep the 4-3-3 that won against Bologna.
  • Ricchiuti is favoured over Biagianti to replace Almiron in the middle of the field.

Prediction

  • Just after being praised for an excellent season, and with their home record intact until the match against Napoli, Parma have started dropping points and are now sitting on the edge of the top half of the table.
  • Elsewhere, Catania have managed to cling to the group of Europa League contenders with a good series of matches after the winter break (14 point in 7 games) and they are now chasing Fiorentina and Inter.
  • Parma need to get back to winning ways to ensure their position in the table is still safe and avoid being dragged into the relegation fight. The margin they have on the drop zone in the table will allow Donadoni to be a little adventurous. Catania are a more favourable opponent to meet away from home, but if Maran wants to keep chasing the European dream, that's where his team need to step up.
