Parma v Livorno: Preview

Parma coach Roberto Donadoni has told his players to hold their nerve and focus on themselves rather than others when they host bottom-side Livorno on Sunday.

The Ducale club must better the result of Torino - currently one point ahead - if they are to finish in sixth place and clinch the last Europa League qualifying spot.

Torino end their campaign at fourth-placed Fiorentina on Sunday.

Should Parma, who are seventh, finish level on points with Torino, the Gialloblu would qualify for Europe as they have a better head-to-head record against the Turin outfit.

``We are playing in front of our fans and this is a very important game for us,'' Donadoni said.

``We will go out determined to take a win and only after the game will we see what happens in Florence.

``We will have to give our all and then see where that leaves us. Whatever happens on Sunday, we have done a good job this season.''

Parma, who drew 1-1 at Torino last time out, have lost just three times at the Ennio Tardini stadium this season.

Livorno travel to Parma on Sunday looking to end a dismal season on a high note.

The Amaranto's fate was decided last weekend when they fell 1-0 at home to Fiorentina to be relegated.

``The club decided to go into the season with these players and we did everything we could to save ourselves,'' Livorno coach Davide Nicola said.

``It was not possible to defend our Serie A status but we tried.''

Nicola's side head into the encounter in Parma at the foot of the standings and on the back of six straight defeats.

The Tuscan outfit have won just six times this season, their last win dating back to March 16.

The hosts will be without defenders Felipe and Alessandro Lucarelli, who are both suspended.
