Parma vs Atalanta
Italy – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 28 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini.
La Dea have an opportunity to make it to the second position in the table this week. The second-placed Inter are pitted against Napoli, and are expected to drop points. If Gian Piero Gasperini’s men manage to win this fixture against the Crusaders, they could easily overtake Antonio Conte’s men in standings.
They do have other achievements to look forward too. Only two teams in the whole of Europe’s top five leagues have scored 100 goals or more this season – Manchester City and Bayern Munich. La Dea are currently standing at 96. They need four more goals from the last two games to touch the magical mark.
Considering the current form of Gasperini’s men, their opportunity to climb to the second spot in the table, and their h2h superiority over this opponent – expect an Atalanta win this Tuesday.

Parma vs Atalanta: Prediction
Roberto D’Aversa’s men recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Brescia. While it was a good victory, the fact it had come against one of the worst teams in the competition – took away some of its shine.
Meanwhile, Gasperini’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the past game week, by AC Milan.
As things stand, La Dea are the favorites to post the win. First and foremost, they had recorded a massive 5-0 win in the reverse fixture, and they also are on a three-game winning run against this opponent – which saw them scoring a total of 11 goals.
Moreover, they are on a 19-game unbeaten run, and of these 15 were wins. They have also trying to score 100 goals in a league season, and need four goals from the remaining two fixtures in order to reach the figure.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in seven of their last nine overall fixtures, and were so in six of their past seven appearances at this stadium. They had also conceded two or more goals in four of the preceding five home games.
Taking into account these observations, expect a dominating Atalanta win this Tuesday.
