Pasquale Marino is buoyed by Inter's recent poor form and thinks Parma can cause a lunchtime upset. “We're not afraid.”
The Treble winners are struggling in Serie A with two consecutive defeats against Milan and Chievo.
Despite Parma's dismal start to the campaign, they are now only five points behind the Nerazzurri.
“There will be no fear, as we're not afraid of Inter at San Siro,” said Coach Marino ahead of the 11.30 UK time kick-off.
“What we do have is the calm of knowing what our potential is and that has been evident in our recent outings.”
The Ducali are without Alberto Paloschi, Daniele Galloppa, Stefano Morrone and Fernando Marques.
“Sebastian Giovinco has been training with the team for over a week, so he should be ready this time.
“We will try to play the kind of football we know and not to overshadow the first principle, which is playing the ball to feet and going on rapid counter-attacks.”
