Cagliari and Parma

Match Date: 27 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio San Elia


After a successful attempt of preventing a loss that could have added more damage to their lackluster performance this season, Ivo Pulga and his men will try to replicate the same performance when they face the resilient Parma.


The Sardinian outfit is one of the clubs, which experienced a massive downfall in the present tournament. It did not really fall into the relegation zone—well, almost. But occupying the 15th spot was a far-flung shot of what they have achieved before. Last season, it was the 11th best club in the Italian top-flight league. But right now, it was just a mere shadow of its (successful) feat.


As Cagliari welcomes Parma, Pulga will once again try to resurrect his almost dead side. They have the home court advantage and a quite impressive team form. They were undefeated in 3 of their last 6 matches whereas Parma can only generate a single win and a draw. However, this does not mean that they are the top pick of supporters and even sports betting sites.


Parma will probably take such opportunity to redeem itself from the disappointing loss to Inter. Roberto Donadoni and his troop remains keen on keeping their Europa League hopes alive. And with just 5 points to address, it is indeed, possible for the Crociatis to make it to the international scene. Clearly, the favorite will refuse to wave the white flag in this match.
