Hernan Crespo thinks it's imperative that Parma get a win from their match with relegation stricken Bari this weekend.
Parma beat Sampdoria before the international break and feel that a second win in a row would be a big step towards survival.
"The League table says that if there is a game in which Parma must get three points it's the one against Bari," Crespo said.
"This doesn't mean that the teams which aren't favourites lose. But this Sunday Parma have to win. Not just on paper.
"It's true the opponents will play without pressure, but we don't know what Bari will turn up."
