Parma visit Inter this evening and Franco Colomba insists “it is a tough test, but we’re used to it by now.”
The Ducali play their first game of 2012 at San Siro, where they have lost their last five consecutive encounters, not winning since May 1999.
“We go into this match knowing full well that we cannot make a single mistake,” said Coach Colomba.
“San Siro is a wonderful stadium and Inter are certainly a frightening prospect, especially on home turf.
“It is always a tough test, but we’re used to it by now, as we know the difficulties that we will face.”
Changes are forced in defence due to a one-match ban for Alessandro Lucarelli, so Fabiano Santacroce is expected to step in.
Former Inter striker Hernan Crespo has been left behind, but Sergio Floccari and Jonathan Biabiany are expected to start with Sebastian Giovinco.
