Parma vs Chievo
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 9 December 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma).
Parma host Chievo in a low-profile Serie A tie on Saturday afternoon at Stadio Ennio Tardini. The hosts head into the match as favourites given they’ll be up against the only team without a victory in the entire league on the occasion. Chievo began the season with a three-point deficit to the rest of the league. They took only five in 14 games of the campaign which means they currently sit at the rock-bottom being six points shy of the penultimate-placed Frosinone.
Nonetheless, the managerial change caused the wanted effect as Gialloblu avoided losses in back-to-back fixtures against the likes of Napoli and Lazio with Domenico Di Carlo in charge. The new manager significantly improved team’s defensive displays as Chievo kept the likes of Napoli to a goalless draw at San Paolo before conceding just one goal in last weekend’s home draw to Biancocelesti.
Parma vs Chievo: Head-to-head
Parma lead the head to head tie by four wins coming into 25th encounter with Gialloblu.
We have to say it’s been three years since these two likes last met each other.
Crociati won 5, drew 5 and lost only 2 of 12 home outings against Chievo.
Parma vs Chievo: Prediction
Parma were on a streak of two consecutive wins over Torino and Sassuolo before falling 2-1 away at Milan last time out. Roberto D’Abersa’s troops lost at San Siro in spite of an opener from Roberto Inglese. Cutrone and Kessie turned it around for Milan later on in the second half.
Nevertheless, we have reasons to say Parma are enjoying an overwhelming campaign in the top flight of the Italian football this season. They are favourites here, but we will back the Under 2.5 goals FT instead of the home win knowing about Chievo’s massive improvements in their defensive efforts of late.
Also, Parma have a 8-7 goal difference in 7 home outings this season. The Under 2.5 goals is by far the best bet you can back here.
Parma vs Chievo: Bet Tips
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.80 (4/5)
Draw @ 3.30 (23/10).
