Parma haven't won away against Fiorentina since November 2009, and only three of the players in the crociati's starting 11 for their last viola victory are still playing their trade at the Ennio Tardini today. However, Roberto Donadoni's team may well fancy their chances of upsetting the form guide this weekend, having had their confidence boosted by their first Serie A win of the season in their last match.
That victory was an exciting 4-3 against Atalanta, as -- in a reversal of their usual fortunes -- Parma managed to score with just about every audacious attempt they tried, instead having difficulty keeping the ball out of their own net. Nevertheless, even after striker Amauri was sent off the crociati held onto their lead, and picked up a vital three points to kick-start their centenary season.
Boosting the gialloblu's confidence yet further ahead of this Tuscan trip is that opponents Fiorentina were rather less successful in the last round, throwing away a lead away at Inter Milan to lose 2-1. It was a classic smash-and-grab counter-attacking performance from the nerazzurri, leaving Vincenzo Montella's men shellshocked after dominating much of the game.
Fiorentina injuries and suspensions
Out: Mario Gómez, Manuel Pasqual, Ahmed Hegazy (injured). In doubt: Juan Cuadrado, Alberto Aquilani.
Out: Daniele Galloppa, Gabriel Paletta (injured); Amauri (suspended). In doubt: None.
