“My lads put their pride out on the pitch and that was by no means a guarantee,” said Mihajlovic in his Press conference.

“We can do even more, but so can the fans. I dream of seeing Marassi packed to the rafters. I want every team who comes to Genoa to think they are playing against an entire city.

“I am satisfied with what I have done so far and hope to get my choices right again this weekend.”

Parma visit without star striker Antonio Cassano, who sits out a ban against his former club.

“That changes nothing for me, as we go out there to win regardless of who our opponents are,” continued the Serbian tactician.

“The enthusiasm is coming back to Sampdoria. The important thing is not to start well, but to end well.”

Manolo Gabbiadini is suspended for the Blucerchiati, but Lorenzo De Silvestri, Pedro Obiang and Eder have shaken off fitness concerns.

Sampdoria squad for Parma: Da Costa, Fiorillo, Tozzo, Costa, De Silvestri, Fornasier, Gastaldello, Mustafi, Regini, Rodriguez, Bjarnason, Eramo, Gavazzi, Krsticic, Maresca, Obiang, Palombo, Renan, Soriano, Wszolek, Eder, Petagna, Pozzi, Sansone
