Pressing Ahead: Palermo – Parma

The last time these two teams played each other, it was the “Fog Bowl” that ended in a 0-0 draw. Now, over four months later, Palermo and Parma will square off hoping for a win that mathematically ensures safety. With both clubs equal on points, this will be a true fight between squads experiencing disappointing seasons. Parma are riding a two game winning streak that have helped them climb out of the danger zone, but they’re not out of the clear yet. Palermo, meanwhile, have managed two consecutive draws to the likes of Fiorentina and Cesena. Mutti and his men will be pushing for a victory that not only achieves safety, but also puts them withing striking distance of Catania, whom they play on the weekend.

Official Lineup

Labrin – Silvestre – Mantovani
Munoz – Donati – Della Rocca – Aguirregaray
Abel – Budan

Bench: Tzorvas; Milanovic; Acquah, Barreto, Zahavi, Ilicic; Miccoli

Miccoli and Ilicic on the bench. The former perhaps being rested ahead of the derby while the latter is sitting out due to the good performance put in by Vazquez over the weekend. Mutti has opted for a 3-4-1-2 so Munoz and Aguirregaray will be key in keeping Parma’s attack at bay.

  1. Munoz on the right wing?? Does not compute.
    I still want to see what Zahavi can do. He’s not been given much time this season at all. And more Acquah too.
