The Ducali are coming off a 1-1 draw with Milan, while the Elefantini were flattened 4-0 by Bologna.
“It will be difficult to get a result at Catania, as they are a well-drilled side who impose their style on the game and have great technique,” said the Coach.
“They will also be eager to make up for last week’s defeat, even though they didn’t actually play badly despite the result.
“We must be balanced and patient, reading the game well and above all keeping a high tempo. We can’t allow them to control the tempo, or they will make us pay with their quality.”
Parma squad for Catania: Mirante, Pavarini, Bajza; Benalouane, Fideleff, Lucarelli, MacEachen, Paletta, Zaccardo; Acquah, Galloppa, Gobbi, Morrone, Musacci, Ninis, Parolo, Rosi, Valdes; Amauri, Belfodil, Biabiany, Marchionni, Pabon, Sansone
