D'Aversa: Inter not mission impossible

Roberto D’Aversa has issued a rallying cry to his Parma players, claiming ‘Inter’s pride is hurt’ and that a win is ‘not impossible’.

The match kicks off tomorrow at 19:30 GMT – click here for a preview.

“Regardless of the results we’ve picked up, we need to analyse everything with a clear head,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“Against SPAL we did well for 70 minutes and probably deserved a different result. In Turin it wasn’t easy to recover.

“Inter’s pride is hurt after a home defeat, but it’d be wrong to think tomorrow is a simple task because they have huge quality.

“We must ensure that the key moments go our way tomorrow. The motivation for these games come by themselves and being compact is important.

“It’s a difficult match but not impossible. Inter are a team whose possession is their best weapon.

“They put in a lot of crosses because they have a player like Icardi, who in the box is among the best in Europe.

“Sierralta and Dimarco won’t be called up. We’ve worked well this week, but I still have to decide who will play, also with the characteristics of our opponents in mind.”
