Parma will be looking to end their eight-game losing streak as they square off against Sampdoria at Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Saturday.

Parma have already been relegated from the Italian top-flight as a result of an embarrassing total of 20 points with just one game to go. They lost 3-1 away to Sassuolo in their most recent Serie A clash.

Claudio Ranieri's Sampdoria will finish their campaign in the top-half, having won two, lost two and drawn one of their last five games. They registered a narrow 0-1 win against Udinese in their last league game, veteran forward Fabio Quagliarella scoring the only goal of the game.

Sampdoria and Parma last met on 24 January in league action, with the Blucerchiati defeating the Crociati 2-0 away from home. Maya Yoshida and Keita Balde Diao's first-half goals were enough for Ranieri's side to secure three crucial points, as the hosts couldn't respond.
