Team News: Parma
Gastón Brugman (Disrupted Calf Muscle), Andreas Cornelius (Biceps femoris muscle injury), Hernani (Hamstring Injury), Matteo Scozzarella (Disrupted Calf Muscle) and Alberto Grassi (Thigh Muscle Strain) won’t be playing for Parma manager Roberto D'Aversa.
It looks as if I Crociati should opt for a 4-3-3 system for this game, beginning the first half with Luigi Sepe, Matteo Darmian, Kastriot Dermaku, Simone Iacoponi, Vincent Laurini, Juraj Kucka, Jasmin Kurtic, Antonino Barillà, Gianluca Caprari, Gervinho and Dejan Kulusevski.
Team News: Atalanta
Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there is only the lone fitness issue for the Atalanta manager Gian Gasperini to be concerned with. Josip Ilicic (Fitness) won’t be playing here. Rafael Tolói will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
It’s our belief that La Dea will likely play in a 3-4-3 lineup by sending out Pierluigi Gollini, Rafael Toloi, Mattia Caldara, Berat Djimsiti, Hans Hateboer, Remo Freuler, Marten De Roon, Robin Gosens, Ruslan Malinovsky, Duván Zapata and Alejandro Dario Gomez.
Our pre-match assessment is that Atalanta will, in all probability, create a decent amount of chances and shots on target.
At the same time, Parma will not find it easy to make a breakthrough but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be scoring here.
We reckon that it will be a fairly comfortable 1-3 win for Atalanta when the full-time whistle blows.
