Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia
Parma travel to Bergamo on Saturday afternoon to kick off this weekend’s round of Serie A fixtures as they take on Gian Piero Gasperini’s rejuvenated Atalanta side.
Parma lost out to Lazio last time out as Simone Inzaghi’s side won 2-0 at the Trdini thanks to two late goals from Ciro Immobile and Joaquin Correa.
Roberto D’Aversa should have Gervinho available again, the Ivorian sat out the Lazio clash with injury, but having trained all week Parma’s talisman should be available for selection again. Despite Jacopo Dezi and Gianni Munari taking part in some light training this week the duo will miss out yet again along with Alberto Grassi, Federico Di Marco and Francisco Sierralta.
Despite a poor start to the season from Atalanta, they stopped a run of nine games without a win in Serie A and the Europa League last week as the demolished Chievo 5-1, Gasperini will hope they can build on this impressive victory and secure all three points on Saturday and start climbing the league table, once again Saturday's hosts will have to do without Andrea Masiello and Marco Tumminello, Gasperini is tipped to give Duvan Zapata a starting place over Musa Barrow in attack to play along side Papu Gomez.
The last time Parma travelled to Bergamo for Serie A the Ducali were on a huge slump back in October 2014 having won only one of their opening six games, Richmond Boakye made that seven defeats in eight as his last minute goal was enough to secure all three points for the home side.
