Parma vs Bologna
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 7 February 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini.
Parma will host Bologna in a very important relegation six-pointer on Sunday evening at Stadio Ennio Tardini.
Neither of the two teams have been pulling up any trees of late and they are both desperate to arrest their current slump in form and clinch the salvation points against direct relegation rivals.
Bologna are in a much better situation if we look at the league standings. They are five points above the danger area and seven points above Parma.
Yet, a potential defeat at Stadio Ennio Tardini would launch them straight into the relegation battle. They did have a very tough schedule with the fixtures against Juventus and Milan in the last two games.
However, the team led by Sinisa Mihajlovic has rarely done well throughout the entire season, especially on travels where they won just one of ten league games this term.
Can they rise in this important clash with out-of-form Parma?
Parma vs Bologna Head-to-head
- The draw has been the most frequent of the outcomes in the history of this match-up. It happened on 14 occasions in 35 games. Bologna won 12 and lost 9 of the remaining 21 outings.
- Interestingly, there were at least four goals scored in each of the last four head to head meetings between the two teams.
- I Rossoblu celebrated a demolishing 4-1 victory when they hosted Parma in the first half of the season at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
Parma vs Bologna Prediction
Parma have by far the weakest attacking record in the whole division. They scored no more than 14 goals in 20 league matches this season. Outside of Gervinho (4 goals), they do not have a striker with more than one goal in this term of Serie A.
The Crociati notched only two goals in the last seven games in all competitions and it is really hard to back them here against Bologna.
The visitors were not much efficient of late either, having notched only two goals in the last four matches. Nevertheless, Sinisa Mihajlovic does possess much more versatility in the final third.
Also, Bologna bagged four goals past Parma when the two sides locked horns in the first part of the season.
We will back the away win as the main betting option at the 2.30 odds. The alternative bet is the Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.80.
