After a shocking September, Parma seem to have finally hit a bit of form going into the winter months. Parma, who only managed to muster two wins and score a measly four goals in September, have now scored six in their last two and only tasted defeat once in October.
Roberto D’Aversa’s side put in easily their best performance of the season on Tuesday night as The Ducali brushed aside Foggia at ease, putting in a dominant display, the coach will be hoping Roberto Insigne can continue his fine form going into this one with the on loan Napoli man scoring two in his previous two outings including a stunner on Tuesday.
Despite the recent good form Parma will be wary of their shocking home form this season having won just two of their six meetings in front of their home fans so far, on the other hand, despite picking up three points against Pro Vercelli in mid week, Sundays visitors will be hoping to find a cure for their travel sickness having picked up just three points from a possible twelve on the road this season.
With Fabio Ceravolo on the side-lines long term, D’Aversa will be looking to veteran Emanuele Calaio to lead the line in the usual three man attack in a bid to turn Parma’s fortunes round at home and record three victories in a row for the first time this campaign and climb nearer the summit of Serie B.
Parma Last 5 – D D L W W

Player Watch - Roberto Insigne
Insigne who has a reputation of blowing hot and cold, certainly is hot right now having scored two in two, full of confidence the young Neapolitan will be hoping to kick on now after a quiet start to his Parma career and become one of Roberto D’Aversa’s key stars.
