Team News

  • Donadoni will stick with the four-man defence since he will be without centre-back Zaccardo.
  • Valdes is suspended so Acquah could play in the middle of the park. Other options would be Morrone and Musacci.
  • Belfodil and Amauri are in competition to start as the main striker.
  • Aronica has just signed for Palermo but he will have to play straight away since Donati and Munoz are not available.
  • The former Napoli defender was brought to Palermo to move Garcia to the midfield, but he is also needed in the centre of the defence.
  • Therefore, Sanseverino will take to the left flank to face Biabiany.

Prediction

  • The last two games of 2012 brought Parma six points, a victory in the derby and a strong position in the table. Relegation is not something Donadoni will have to worry about, so playing without pressure could also make room for dreams of a European spot.
  • Palermo are the worst team in the league away from home, and they also failed to obtain points in their last two home matches. Gasperini's ship is sinking, and this away match against a well organized team could drag it down yet further.
  • The hosts should be able to take advantage of Palermo's need for points and play a patient match in order to try and create chances as the Rosanero lose focus. Palermo are expected to make some signings in January, so Gasperini may just try to survive here in Parma and plan for the future with different players.
