The Derby Emilia-Romagna will be played today in the afternoon in the Italian Lega Serie A and is expected to be electrifying.

The last time Parma faced Sassuolo, the Gialloblu defeated the Neroverdi 2-1, and today both teams will face off in a new edition of the Emilia-Romagna Derby in the Italian Lega Serie A.

This is why Parma coach Roberto D’Aversa believes his team is “out for revenge” as they meet today.

“They are two points ahead of us in the standings and they will want to get revenge for the first game. They will give everything to get the result,” D’Aversa said to Football Italia.

“We studied their last games against Chievo and Lazio and they have improved, but we must take advantages of their weaknesses.”

“We must play as we did against Torino and try and take advantage of any slip-ups that occur. In that game, we played with the right mentality.”

“Gervinho has taken part in training with the team both yesterday and today and will be evaluated.”

There are seven matches left for Parma in the 2018-2019 season: They will play against Sassuolo, AC Milan, Chievo Verona, Sampdoria, Bologna, Fiorentina, and Roma.

Parma is currently in the 14th position of the Serie A table with 34 points, just two points behind Sassuolo who are in 12th. The Neroverdi have won nine matches, drawn seven, and lost 15.
