Fiorentina head back home to take on relegation strugglers Parma in what surely looks like a 6-pointer. With Dušan Vlahović the only available forward—Franck Ribery, Christian Kouamé, and Aleksandr Kokorin are out—Cesare Prandelli has called up Primavera front man Louis Muteanu, fresh off a brace for the kids. With Gaetano Castrovilli and Igor also missing, though, you can see how things could go very wrong.
Parma, of course, are facing their own crisis, highlighted by somehow having even fewer healthy strikers than the Viola, which helps explain why the Ducali have scored the fewest goals in Serie A this season. Indeed, this is a true test of who can flail harder between two completely hopeless attacks. Should make for compelling television.
Anyways, we’ve got all of our usual coverage right here: preview, match thread, highlights, player grades, analysis, and shrieking wordlessly into the void that threatens above and below us. In a word, another day for Fiorentina.
