Parma vs SassuoloRoberto Donadoni’s men have started the season with a single point in the opening 3 rounds and 6 goals conceded, but lately they have started to show signs of improvement in form, being unbeaten in three games. Veteran Massimo Gobbi saved a point for Parma on their last trip to Fiorentina (2-2), while in the previous home match, they`ve beaten Atalanta following a spectacular 4-3 thriller.
The guests are still at the bottom of the section, winless in 6 rounds, but they have also started to show signs of a promising turnaround with back-to-back draws, after suffering successive defeats in the opening 4 rounds. First, they became the first club to snatch a point off the in-form Napoli (1-1), then they hold Lazio to a 2-2 draw on Sunday.
The hosts have raised their form in recent weeks and while the guests have also raised their heads, I think that the Ducali have a good chance to build on their recent form and extend the unbeaten run. They`ve scored 6 goals in their last 2 matches and with Parolo, Cassano and Biabiany in the lineup, they can score a few against the worst defense from the league.
Parma without: Galloppa; Palleta; Okaka; Amauri; Marchionni
Sassuolo without: Valeri; Marrone; Terranova; Gomes; Gazzola
