The Gialloblu will enter into the two legged tie on June 14 and 18 after their 3-3 draw with Lecce, with top flight survival at stake after a dramatic final day in Italy.
However they will be without several key players as referee Massimo de Santis carded three Parma stars as well as dismissing Domenico Morfeo (pictured) and Matteo Contini in the last five minutes.
Whilst Baraldi did not complain about the result of the game, he attacked de Santis for compromising his side's chances as they take on Bologna for the right to avoid Sere B football next season.
"Regrets for the result? No I think it has been right," said Baraldi.
"What I don't accept is the referee's behaviour as he used many cards for our players.
"He booked all our players close to a ban.
"Now our attention is focused on the play-off with Bologna because we will be without many players.
"We will have six players banned and between them there will be [Alberto] Gilardino and Morfeo, and two other players will be playing in the Confederations Cup."
