Parma Vs. Inter Milan: Sebastian Giovinco Gives Parma Surprise Lead

Few expected Parma to be able to grab points away from Inter Milan, but at least in the first half, they have the upper hand thanks to a goal by Sebastian Giovinco. Parma had played Inter well up to the 35th minute goal, although Inter had had the best chances through the fantastic Dejan Stankovic. Chances or not for Stankovic, Parma had their good run of play to surprise Inter and lead to their taking a 1-0 first half lead.

For the first time all match, Cristian Zaccardo was able to put his defensive responsibilities to the side for a moment and push forward. He did so with great effect as he played a tantalizing ball across and all the way to Francesco Modesto on the left. Modesto gathered and spotted Giovinco, who calmly put the ball past Julio Cesar for the 1-0 Parma lead.

Inter must now regroup because they need three points. Two points behind second place Napoli and five behind leaders AC Milan (who currently lead 1-0), Inter will have to find not just one, but two goals if this match is to be a success.
