“We are disappointed with that defeat, but now we’re concentrated only on the challenge with Parma. This is a dangerous opponent, but I have faith in my players.

“We put in the performances this season, even if there is margin for improvement, so over five rounds I have seen some good things. This is why we look to the future with confidence.”

Nicolas Burdisso is back after injury problems, while Maxime Lestienne could get a start too.

Genoa squad for Parma: Perin, Antonini, De Maio, Izzo, Burdisso, Pinilla, Perotti, Antonelli, Roncaglia, Lestienne, Greco, Edenilson, Lamanna, Falque, Matri, Kucka, Sommariva, Sturaro, Rosi, Rincon, Bertolacci, Mussis
