Parma-Samp friendly test

An all-Serie A friendly test ended in a 1-1 draw between Parma and Sampdoria on Saturday evening.

It was a positive atmosphere at the Stadio Tardini, as the two sets of fans are twinned.

Nicola Pozzi and Fernando Tissone went close, but it was Parma who went in front.

The Ducali took the lead with summer signing Ignacio Fideleff, who was brought in from Napoli this season. The defender was allowed a free header from a set piece.

Cristian Zaccardo, Afriyie Acquah and new arrival Arteaga tested the Sampdoria goalkeeper in the second half.

Roberto Donadoni’s men thought they were heading for a victory until seven minutes from time, when Eder snatched the equaliser.

Icardi threatened to win it for the Blucerchiati in stoppages, but was denied by the goalkeeper.
