Marino looks to Giovinco in Palermo

Pasquale Marino feels Parma can make the difference with Sebastian Giovinco in their tricky trip to Palermo today.

“In the last few games the Rosanero have been very strong on home turf, so we must be prepared mentally,” warned the Coach of their 17.00 UK time kick-off.

“Palermo are a tactically organised outfit with a great deal of quality in attack. We've got to keep it tight and raise the tempo.”

Parma's away record is dismal with just one clean sheet in the last 10 games. This season they have conceded 13 goals on their travels and scored just six.

“We are getting back some key players who we focused on a lot for this campaign, the lads who can get past their man. I'm thinking of Giovinco and Daniele Galloppa.

“Their absence has led the rest of the team to struggle, but now we are improving and should have more belief in the final third.”

Francesco Valiani is suspended and Fernando Marques joins Alberto Paloschi and Galloppa on the sidelines.

Giovinco is likely to complete the trident attack with Hernan Crespo and Angelo.
