No prizes for guessing that I am sticking with Parma, Claudio Ranieri's side have served us very well, have lost only once ( at Inter) in 7 starts and meet a team in freefall.
Catania have collected just 2 points from a possible 30, have conceded 61 goals in 31 matches and are without 7 players today.
It is unlikely that the hosts could have cherry picked better opponents and I confidently expect them to take a step nearer Serie A survival, with 3 points this afternoon.
Milan can crown a fantastic week, with victory away to Messina, a result which could take them into the holy grail of 4th place in the league table. The Rossoneri have lost only to city rivals Inter in 13 starts and will be able to add Ronaldo and Gilardino to the squad, both look set to start. Heard that in training, Ronny still sprints past every other player in the club.
Messina are desperate for the points at the other end of the table, but look on their way to Serie B, they have lost the last 3 without scoring and their total of 20 goals conceded at home, has only been "beaten" by Catania and surprisingly, Palermo. They will be further hampered by the unavailability of suspended keeper, Caglioni and defender Candela, plus injured striker Di Napoli. Away win.
