On the 30th game day in Series A, Parma is located in the Ennio Rardini Stadium welcoming the guests from Rome. A very interesting game, with two completely different requirements. On the one hand, there is Parma, who is the 17th, and fears for the league and needs every point. On the other hand, there stands the SS Lazio Rome. The Romans are stable in a strong third place and want to continue to confirm their claims, and what is going on – even with their points to win.
With a three-point advantage, they currently have it over their runners-up from Naples and Udinese. Parma has a lead of five points in the first relegation spot, but in the 3-point system these are very quickly to be expiring, so a defeat is undesirable.
In the first leg of Parma, they conceded a very close 1-0 defeat in Rome. Recently, there were less encouraging things, because Parma has been waiting to win for the last eight games now. Coach Donadoni wants to have a still controlled play against Lazio, and relies on a secure defensive system. He is missing here, however, the players Palladino and Mariga. With Lazio, the injured defender Stankevicius and Garrido and the midfielder Lulic and Cana will fall out, and Diakite will be missing because of a disability also.
Lazio played a little inconsistently and changeably in the last match day. Their shape is absolutely depending on the day.
Conclusion: The FC Parma team is strong in defense and can certainly secure a spot for themselves on Saturday night.
