15:00 Palermo – Parma

  • With 8 points from their last 4 games, Giuseppe Iachini has paid back the trust placed in him by Palermo chairman Maurizio Zamparini.
  • Parma suffered yet another defeat to a newly promoted team as they lost 2-0 at home to Empoli last time out. The only shining light is that the 4 point gap between themselves at Atalanta in 17th did not change.
  • Palermo are in better form and playing at the Barbera will heap further pressure on Parma. The Crociati put in a spirited performance against Inter recently, but followed that up with successive defeats, with off field antics having an adverse effect on their performances.
