In a few hours, the Reggio-Emilia Derby will be played in the Italian Lega Serie A and for De Zerbi it will be unpredictable

Sassuolo and Parma will face off today in the Reggio-Emilia Derby of the Italian Lega Serie A.

And for Sassuolo coach Roberto De Zerbi, Parma is the “real surprise outfit of the season.”

“It is a very difficult fixture because the table tells us Parma are the real surprise outfit of the season and did extraordinary things to go from Serie C to A,” said De Zerbi according to Football Italia.

“Plus the director of sport and the Coach are friends of mine, so I compliment everyone for their work.”

“They brought in talented players like Gervinho, Roberto Inglese, Alberto Grassi, Jonathan Biabiany and Luigi Sepe,” he added.

“Parma deserved it when they won this term, but also deserved more in other games that they didn’t win.”
