The things are more complicated in Parma squad. They were without a win until Wednesday when they managed to beat Atalanta. That match was very unusual for Italian Serie A as it finished with seven goals – Parma won 4:3. Marco Paolo was the scorer of two goals, while Djamel Mesbah and Aleandro Rosi scored the remaining two. Before that Parma lost to Udinese and Roma, while shared the points with Chievo and Catania. The coach Roberto Donadoni has some worries in front of this match. The striker Amauri is suspended after saw red card against Atalanta, while two more players are sidelined through injuries – Gabriel Paletta and Daniele Galloppa.
Fiorentina are dominant against Parma at Stadio Artemio Franchi in the last period. The Viola had three wins on the last three home games. Even more, the hosts kept clean sheet on all three games. I expect Fiorentina to win again.
