Fiorentina vs Parma by Neuro
Fiorentina suffered their first victory in the new season as they are coming from a 2:1 defeat at "San Siro" from Inter on Thursday night. Although they took the lead from a penalty kick scored by Rossi in 60th minute, visitors made a mistake to turn to defensive game play and have conceded two goals in last twenty minutes of the game.
However, coach Montella has said that he is very pleased with the performance of his team and that the only thing that lacked is the final result. Adding that their only mistake is that they believed to have earned the victory already after a 1:0 lead. Anyway, team now turns to another home game, this time against Parma and will look for the fourth victory in the league as they have now 3-1-1 record. Dream goal for them would be getting the Champions League ticket in the end of the season, while the team also awaits Europa League game on Thursday when they face up against Dnipro on the road. Central defender Hegazy (without participation) continues to be out, same as winger Iakovenko (without participation) and striker Gomez (3/2).
Left defender Pasqual (5/1) is also out, with winger Cuadrado (2/1) being doubtful for the game. Pizzarro is back after suspension and will start the game in the center of midfield. Coach continues with 4-3-2-1 formation and Rossi at the top of attack, with Borja Valera and Joaquin supporting him.
Parma, on the other side, made their home match against Atalanta much more tougher than it seemed to be at the beginning. Bottom line is that they managed to get the first victory in the season, even though it could have been earned in a much easier way. They were 4:1 up already after 40 minutes of play, but a late conceded goal in first half-time complicated the things a bit more.
Furthermore, hosts stood with a man less from 53rd minute when Amauri got red carded, while the visitors pushed even more from then on. Atalanta reduced to 4:3 twelve minutes before the end, but had no power nor luck to equalize the match completely. Coach Donadoni has said in front of the next match that Viole is a very strong side and that his players will have to show great care and determination during all ninety minutes in order to obtain a positive result. As said, striker Amauri (5/0) got red carded in previous game and is suspended, while injured remain central defender Paletta and midfielder Galloppa, who didn't even participate this season.
Viola is playing very well from the start of the season, even if their most recent defeat against Inter. Home side should get the victory easy or hard having in mind their form and poor travelers from Parma, team that is way less dangerous on the road.
