Roberto Donadoni’s men travel to Tuscany on Monday night hoping to bring their stay in Serie A to memorable end with their remaining two fixtures.
It’s been a chaotic campaign for The Ducali with relegation already confirmed, the Emiliani have far from given up though and have picked up some impressive results over recent weeks including last week’s fiery 2-2 draw with Rafa Benitez’ Napoli, a game Parma feel they could have one.
As for the hosts, Vincenzo Montella will be looking for a positive reaction after La Viola’s humiliating Europa League lesson handed to them by Sevilla.
Fiorentina have managed to steady the ship after falling at an alarming rate, they have managed to secure back to back victories in the last two rounds, however with Sampdoria, Inter & Genoa all hot on the heels of Fiorentina, Montella’s men will have to secure victory if they want to be playing European football again next season.
Fiorentina will have to be aware that Parma will be out to enjoy themselves as they go into the last two games of their Serie A lives and with the clubs future very much uncertain many players will be looking to put themselves in the shop window for next season.
With goals hard to come by this season Donadoni will be looking to Antonio Mirante to continue his recent good form in goal for the visitors. Parma will be without the suspended Andi Lila.
The under fire Montella has no new suspension issues however he will have to do without the trio of Juan Vargas, Khouma Babacar and Micah Richards all of whom miss out through injury.
The last time these two sides met Parma recorded one of their six victories this season thanks to an Andrea Costa second half strike, giving the host all three points at The Tardini, another defeat here against already relegated Parma would surly see the end of Montella.
Probable Line Up’s
Fiorentina: Neto, Tomovic, Savic, Basanta, Alonso, Borja Valero, Badelj, Aquilani, Benrardeschi, Ilicic, Gomez.
Parma: Mirante, Costa, Mendes, Feddal, Gobbi, Varela, J. Mauri, Jorquera, Nocerino, Ghezzal, Palladino.
