Avellino vs Parma
Italian Serie B
Date: 29th March 2018, Thursday
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Partenio (Avellino).
Boosted by a strong home form, Avellino look to spoil Parma’s promotion ambitions in Thursday’s Italian Serie B match.
Avellino are sitting just outside the relegation zone, but they will be confident of staying in the Serie B on the basis of home form alone this season. The team lost just 2 of their 15 games at the Stadio Partenio in the campaign. Also, they are currently unbeaten in the last 7 home games, which are enough reasons for punters who bank on a Parma win to rethink on their options.
Parma are in the mix of promotion play-off spot and they are coming to Stadio Partenio in search for vital three points. However, the head-coach Roberto D’Aversa might be aware of the danger with a team like Avellino, certainly when his team’s recent away credentials are below par. The Crusaders managed just 2 wins from their last 9 away games and lost 4 from the last 6.
To sum up the form analysis, a tough battle awaits Parma at Avellino.
Avellino vs Parma: Head-to-head
Overall three meetings competitive meetings between the two sides – Parma are unbeaten with 2 wins and 1 draw. All three meetings happened in the Serie B, the latest this season which was a 2-0 Parma win and the remaining two back in 2008/09.
Avellino vs Parma: Prediction
This Serie B fixture will be tighter than what most people expect. There is no doubt that Parma are the team in better form, but Avellino are no pushovers while playing at their own backyard.
Avellino were beaten just twice at home this season and they are a team in top confidence after picking up 2 wins and 5 draws in their last 7 home fixtures.
Parma might be pushing for a promotion berth, but their away credentials are far from impressing. Two wins came from their last 6 away games, but the remaining 4 are defeats. So, for certain, Avellino have a good chance to steal a point from a team sitting at the top half of the table.
