Team News: Parma
Elias Cobbaut (Knee Injury), Gianluigi Buffon (Hamstring Injury) and Simone Romagnoli (Unknown Injury) won’t be available for Parma gaffer Fabio Pecchia.
It’s our opinion that I Crociati will probably make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation and select Leandro Chichizola, Enrico Del Prato, Yordan Osorio, Lautaro Valenti, Jayden Oosterwolde, Franco Vazquez, Nahuel Estévez, Dennis Man, Adrián Bernabé, Drissa Gui Camara and Roberto Inglese.
Team News: Modena
Modena manager Attilio Tesser has multiple availability issues to deal with. Thomas Battistella (Hip Injury) and Mario Gargiulo (Unknown Injury) can’t be considered. Giorgio Cittadini cannot play in this game through suspension.
We believe Canarini appear most likely to elect for a 4-3-2-1 system, starting Riccardo Gagno, Mauro Coppolaro, Antonio Pergreffi, Sebastian De Maio, Paulo Azzi, Luca Magnino, Fabio Gerli, Andrea Poli, Luca Tremolada, Diego Falcinelli and Davide Diaw.
We’ve got the feeling that Parma should convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
However, Modena could well struggle to make a breakthrough but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be getting the chances to score, too.
Our selection here is for a decent 3-1 margin for Parma when the full-time whistle blows.
