Cagliari and Parma will meet today at 8.45 pm CET in the match of 31st round of Italian Serie A, which is crucial in the fight to stay in the league for both clubs. It is, as they say, a massive six-pointer match in which both clubs are looking for only one thing - victory. Cagliari is 18th in Serie A and five points adrift of safety and Parma is seven points off of 17th-placed Torino and survival. This season could come down to match in Sardinia for both clubs.

Cagliari is now on a four league match losing streak, but in the last round offered a very good resistance against leading club Inter in Milan and can build confidence for this match against Parma. Coach Leonardo Semplici announces a complete offensive and believes that his players will not miss clear chances like in previous games.

- In the matches against Spezia and Verona there were opportunities, we need to improve in the final third and chase away the negativity. We have excellent shooters from outside such as Nainggolan, Duncan, Marin, Deiola. Even those who take over must have an extra impact in the goal area - said the Cagliari coach, who has several injured players, and the biggest problem could be standard goalkeeper Alessio Cragno. He will be replaced by 24-year-old Guglielmo Vicario, who has only one game left.

Parma is in an even harder position than the hosts, they have won four points in the last six rounds, and coach Roberto D’Aversa has blasted his players after loss 1:3 against Milan last weekend, although he is plagued by numerous absences.

Today, the very important midfielder Hernani, who has six goals and two assists, will probably not be able to play, and Iacoponi, Zirkzee, Mihaila, Cyprien, Sohm, Karamoh and Brunetta have been out of competition for a long time. Central defender Riccardo Gagliolo is suspended, which is a handicap for the defense of Parma, which is the second worst in the league with 59 goals conceded.

But D’Aversa has no choice, he must attack and has announced an 4-3-3 offensive formation, and in the attack will be Gervinho, Pelle and Man, two experienced and one young and talented striker.

- It won’t be a normal match, it’s the match: the game that will allow one of the two teams to approach their remaining fixtures in a certain way as they look to pick up results. Whoever emerges victorious tomorrow will look at what is on the horizon with a different perspective. We need to concentrate on tomorrow’s match and play in a certain way so we can come out on top. We need to approach it like it’s a final, without thinking about the future. We have to cut out the mistakes and take our chances because, in our last two games, we’ve created more than our opponents but drawn one and lost the other. To make sure that we’re still in contention in the final three games, we must win tomorrow - said guest coach Roberto D’Aversa.

Cagliari have won two of their last four matches against Parma while two finished in draws.

This is an live or die match, one point means nothing to anyone and both rivals will go in a strong rhythm from the first minute. Attacks and strikes should alternate on both sides, and therefore it seems realistic that a total of at least three goals will be scored.

WIN Score: 4:3 Profit: +0.7
