Parma vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini.
Atalanta have struggled to impress in the second part of February but we’ve seen them bounce back to the winning ways and keep up with the Serie A top 6, travelling to mid-table rivals Parma in the hope they can keep it up. They’ve been scoring numbers of goals along the way and hope for a similar upset at Ennio Tardini.
However, La Dea have been denied points by rock-bottomed Chievo in their last outing and will have to find a way to recuperate here. They’ve beaten both Fiorentina and Sampdoria in two exciting clashes beforehand and we should now see them very motivated to impress, despite conceding on the regular along the way as well.
Parma will have plans of their own and while the 4-1 loss at Lazio emphasized their struggles to cope with the big guns, they will hope Atalanta will not show off as such. They’ve held off Empoli (3-3) and beat Genoa (1-0) in two outings beforehand and we should now see them very motivated to bounce back to such performances rather than falling back into the bottom part of the table.
Parma vs Atalanta: Head-to-head
Atalanta haven’t snatched a win at this ground since 2011, with two losses and a draw seen on last three trips.
La Dea have bagged a convincing 3-0 win over the rivals earlier this term, with goals from Riccardo Gagliolo (OG), Jose-Luis Palomino and Gianluca Mancini.
Parma haven’t found the net in any of their last three clashes against Atalanta.
Parma vs Atalanta: Prediction
We will now back Atalanta to secure the all-important points at mid-table rivals, going for an Away win here at 1.60. We have seen them impress in the final third on many occasions and we now hope to see them do the same at Ennio Tardini, capitalizing on the rivals woes here lately.
However, we feel La Dea will have to outgun the rivals to snatch the points and we expect goals on both ends as we also back Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.66, which has seen many big hitters lumping as the visitors enjoy an attacking approach to their fixtures under Gian Piero Gasperini wherever they go.
