In his third appearance with Serie A side Parma Calcio, Leo Štulac has his greatest professional challenge approaching him as his team takes on league leaders Juventus. Leo played for the club in Viareggio in 2014 and his stellar performances led to a historic win against PSV Eindhoven, the very first victory ever achieved in Viareggio by a North American side. Before his Serie A signing, Štulac played for Slovenian side Koper, where the center midfielder totaled 66 games and 7 goals. He then played for the Slovenian U-21 national team where he played 8 matches and scored 3 goals. Following his national team run, he signed for Serie B side Venenzia where he made 37 appearances, 7 goals, and 3 assists.

The lineup sees Štulac assuming central midfield position with Inglese, Gervinho, and Di Gaudio in front of him. The Slovenian prodigy hopes to see his team gain their first victory of the season, following a draw against Udinese and a loss to SPAL. Parma have a tough game ahead of them, but Štulac and his side are hopeful for a favorable result. We at FA Euro wish Parma and Leo the best of luck and extend our support to Leo and Nicolò Canalicchio, another former club player who now plays for Parma.
