AC Milan vs Parma
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, Milan.
AC Milan have been in great shape early in the new campaign and they topped their Europa League group with a 0-1 win at Sparta Prague, as Pioli rotated the lineup and rested most of his main stars. They now hope to see a return of Kjaer, Bennacer, and even Zlatan Ibrahimovic, returning to Serie A in a great mood.
Indeed, Rossoneri extended a four-match winning streak since Lille held them to a 1-1 draw in late November, beating Fiorentina (2-0) and Sampdoria (1-2) with great confidence. They will now want more of the same, as we saw them rather solid at the back with everything to play for. We thus feel the visitors could have trouble finding spaces and we could be in for another narrow occasion.
Parma failed to find the net in three of their last four Serie A outings and beat Cosenza (2-1) along the way. Still, they earned four points in their last two games, where they beat Genoa (1-2) and were held off by Benevento (0-0). They will now want an upset to set themselves clear of the danger zone but we don’t see them making it happen.
AC Milan vs Parma Head-to-head
- AC Milan beat Parma twice the last term, snatching a 0-1 win on the road and securing the points here in a 3-1 win in July.
- Rossoneri bagged five wins and a draw in the last six head-to-head clashes.
- Parma last beat Milan (2-4) in March 2014, when Cassano (x2), Amauri, and Biabiany found the net for the visitors.
AC Milan vs Parma Prediction
We will now back AC Milan to keep it up in Serie A as well and we’ll go for them to bag the points with confidence. We will thus back Rossoneri to a Home win to Nil at 2.20, which would be their third clean sheet in five outings since late November.
However, we don’t see it as a very one-sided game in the making. We rather expect Parma to make it a narrow occasion and with hope we’ll see goals on just one end, we’re also backing a low-scoring game with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 2.62 – going against the odds after seeing Milan enjoy such games lately as well.
