Parma vs AC Milan
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 10 April 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini, Parma.
Although they have different kind of ambitions, both Parma and Milan will be highly motivated to pull off a result when they meet each other on Saturday afternoon at Stadio Ennio Tardini.
The hosts are two points below the safe zone and desperately need points in the remaining nine rounds of the season, especially if we know that the 17th-placed Torino have a game in hand on them.
It is hard to expect plenty of points against the second-placed opposition, though, particularly knowing that Parma have only won three league matches since the start of the season.
Milan are by no means an in-form opposition, but we have to look them as favourites here. The Rossoneri are now just four points above the fifth-placed Napoli who also have a game in hand on them, meaning they could put the top-four finish in jeopardize with a slip-up against the relegation-threatened rivals here.
Parma vs AC Milan Head-to-head
- Milan have dominated this match-up historically with 25 wins to Parma’s 10 in 48 meetings.
- The Rossoneri won five and drew two of the last seven clashes against Parma.
- The Gialloblu, however, managed to leave Stadio San Siro with a point in their pockets in December last year, holding Milan to a 2-2 draw in their first meeting of the season.
Parma vs AC Milan Prediction
Roberto D’Aversa still has headaches over his team’s lack of defensive meticulousness in this term of Serie A. Parma conceded two or more goals in 11 of the last 12 games they’ve played in all competitions. The streak includes dismal displays in the last two rounds when Parma lost 1-2 at home to Genoa and drew 2-2 away at Benevento.
This will be the music to the ears of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and company. The Swedish forward has fully recovered from the injury and is expected to lead the line for Stefano Pioli’s troops on Saturday.
Milan have a fantastic away record of 12 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss in 14 matches this season and we have no other option but to back them to clinch a three-pointer here at the odds of 1.70. You can get similar odds for Zlatan to score past the leaky defence of Parma’s.
