Donadoni wants Parma 'temperament'

Roberto Donadoni gets ready to welcome Lazio, demanding “character and temperament” from Parma.

It kicks off at the Stadio Tardini at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.

Stefano Okaka, Daniele Galloppa and Nicola Pavarini are out, but Gabriel Paletta returns after a long injury lay-off.

Walter Gargano has to miss out because of an early call-up for international duty with Uruguay.

“These are the rules and we had to follow them. It’s a shame, as he also risks missing out on the next game with Napoli,” said Donadoni.

“It is always a prestige to have your players called up for international duty, but it can also make the situation more complicated for clubs.

“There are rumours Marco Parolo will be called up by Italy, which just goes to show how well he has been doing.”

Lazio are under pressure after their 2-0 home defeat to Genoa and scraped 2-1 Europa League result over Apollon Limassol on Thursday.

“Lazio aren’t in that bad a position in the table and are coming off a European victory, so we need character and temperament against a side with a lot of quality.”

Parma squad for Lazio: Acquah, Amauri, Bajza, Benalouane, Biabiany, Cassani, Cassano, Coric, Felipe, Gobbi, Kone, Lucarelli, Marchionni, Mendes, Mesbah, Mirante, Munari, Obi, Paletta, Palladino, Parolo, Rosi, Sansone, Valdes
