Parma coach Francesco Guidolin believes they're three points away from Serie A safety.
Guidolin reckons victory over Atalanta today would assure their top-flight status.
â€śIf we were to achieve victory this weekend, then it would practically secure safety for Parma,â€ť said Guidolin.
â€śFor now we must focus only on overcoming Atalanta as if it were a Cup Final. Itâ€™s important because we are facing a side that is absolutely desperate for points in every game.
â€śTherefore we must adopt the same attitude. We know weâ€™re not too far from our objective and that a win could well put our Serie A status under lock and key two months early.
â€śWe need to match Atalantaâ€™s level of motivation, as often that can make the difference.â€ť
