Preview: Parma vs. Fiorentina

02:09 08/11/2020

In the Italian Serie A Parma Calcio and Fiorentina will meet on 07.11.2020 at 20:45. As usual for Parma Calcio home games, the match will be played on Saturday in the Stadio Ennio Tardini. This fixture sees the actual 16th place side challenges the 11th in the table.

Parma possible starting lineup:
Sepe; Grassi, Iacoponi, Gagliolo, Pezzella; Hernani, Brugman, Kurtic; Kucka; Gervinho, Inglese

Fiorentina possible starting lineup:
Dragowski; Caceres, Igor, Milenkovic; Lirola, Bonaventura, Amrabat, Castrovilli, Biraghi; Ribery, Vlahovic

Parma forward Andreas Cornelius suffered an injury against Inter, but Roberto Inglese returned to action with an assist and is available to start.

Defenders Bruno Alves and Yordan Osorio are back from self-isolation and have re-joined the Gialloblu squad ahead of the game. Midfielders Juan Brunetta and Matteo Scozzarella return from injury too.

Fiorentina skipper German Pezzella remains out with an ankle injury and his cover, Lucas Martinez Quarta, is also unavailable through suspension. Therefore, inexperienced Igor - on loan from Serie B SPAL - may be drafted into the back three by coach Iachini.

Dusan Vlahovic is likely to come back into the forward line, having bafflingly made way for Jose Callejon last week, though Christian Kouame or even Patrick Cutrone could equally be considered for the berth alongside Franck Ribery.
