Parma and Crotone will face off this Sunday at the Ennio Tardini in a Serie B league fixture that had previously been postponed two different times.
Parma have struggled for form in recent outings. They were beaten 1-0 by Frosinone last time out and failed to hit the target with all their shot attempts in the game. The result means the hosts have now won just one of their last eight games in Serie B.
The Crusaders sit 14th in the league table, with 23 points from 19 games. They are just three points above the relegation playoff spots and will be looking to widen that gap on Sunday.
Crotone are fighting to save their season and have rehired Francesco Modesto as manager after dismissing the Italian back in October. They played out a 1-1 draw against Como last time out, with both sides scoring from the penalty spot in the first half.
Crotone sit 18th in Serie B with just 12 points picked up so far. They will be looking to pick up as soon as possible to avoid consecutive drops.
Parma vs Crotone Head-to-Head
There have been just two meetings between Parma and Crotone with the away side winning both matchups.
The two teams last met in an explosive Serie A clash last season. The game ended 4-3 with Crotone leading 3-1 at halftime, squandering the lead before the hour mark and then regaining it to pick up all three points.
