Team News: Parma
Regarding absentees, there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Parma manager Fabio Pecchia to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Lautaro Valenti (Cruciate ligament tear) misses out. Hernani cannot play in this game through suspension.
In all likelihood, I Crociati will probably line up in a 4-4-2 formation for this game, utilising Leandro Chichizola, Enrico Del Prato, Botond Balogh, Alessandro Circati, Gianluca Di Chiara, Simon Sohm, Nahuel Estévez, Adrián Bernabé, Dennis Man, Ange-Yoan Bonny and Antonio Colak.
Team News: Modena
It’s our belief that Canarini might elect for a 4-3-1-2 formation, going with Riccardo Gagno, Shady Oukhadda, Giovanni Zaro, Fabio Ponsi, A. Pio Riccio, Luca Magnino, Luca Tremolada, Antonio Palumbo, Nicholas Bonfanti, Edoardo Duca and Jacopo Manconi.
We’re thinking that Modena are likely to get a goal against this Parma outfit, although it realistically won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We are anticipating a narrow 2-1 win for Parma at full-time. Let’s see what eventuates.
