Verona hope to finish inside the top 10 in Serie A once again
Verona hope to finish inside the top 10 in Serie A once again

Hellas Verona welcome a relegation-battling Parma to the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi on Monday for a Serie A clash.

The Gialloblu have punched above their weight this season, currently occupying ninth position in the table after a fairly impressive campaign.

They've beaten Atalanta, Lazio and Napoli while also holding Juventus and AC Milan to a draw, making them one of the big-hitters of the season.

With eight wins from 21 games, Ivan Juric's side are just four short of what they managed throughout last season. The Sorcerers are looking to finish in the top half of the standings for the second year running.

But the situation is pretty dire in Parma, who are staring at a drop after two years in the top-flight.

They've won only twice - the joint lowest in the division at this stage along with Torino. Parma have scored just 14 goals, also the least in Serie A.

Manager Fabio Liverani was given the boot last month. The Crusadors remain winless under his successor, Roberto D'Aversa, losing four times and drawing once in his five games in charge.

If fortunes don't change drastically, it's going to be very difficult for Parma to cling on to top-flight status.
