The hosts will be looking to maintain their 100% start to the campaign having already seen off Cremonese and Novara respectively, both by a single goal to nil.
Roberto D’Aversa is expected to go relatively unchanged for this one, sticking with the 4-3-3 formation which will be marshalled at the back by the impressive Valerio De Cesare, who will be looking to make it three clean sheets in a row when they face a Brescia side who have only found the back of the net once this season.
Despite Parma’s so far impressive back line, their only concern is the lack of fire power up front having scored just two goals in their last two outings, The home fans will be hoping for a glimpse of new signing Fabio Ceravolo on Sunday who was brought in to help bolster the strike force.
As for the visitors, it’s been a tough start to the season, Brescia travel to Parma looking for their first three points of the campaign as they sit 16th in the standings. Last time out Roberto Boscaglia’s side secured a decent point as promotion chasing Palermo were held to a goalless draw on their visit to the Stadio Marco Rigamonti.
The last time Brescia visited the Tardini was on the opening day of the 2010/11 Serie A season, Parma then coached by Pasquale Marino ran out 2-0 winners thanks to first half strikes from Valeri Bojinov and Stefano Marrone. The home faithful will be delighted with a repeat score line on Sunday.
