Parma vs Fiorentina Prediction & Match Preview

Parma vs Fiorentina
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma).

Both these teams are going through one of the worst phases of their season, and Fiorentina especially so. No other team in the league has lost their last four fixtures in a row. The team has a five-point surplus over the relegation line and three teams below them as a buffer. They may not have to take relegation as a major threat, but still, there’s no telling in football.

Parma too is struggling to produce satisfactory performances, and with just a three-point lead over the cut-off line, and Udinese trying to pass them, the hosts are forced to take this tie seriously. Moreover, they may not get a better chance to shake off their bad form, considering their opponents, and additional home advantage.

They have been winless against this opponent for the last four years, and at this venue, the last Fiorentina won was in 2008.

Going on, five of the last six h2h wins went to the hosts of the day.

Moreover, there won’t be a better chance for the hosts to put some points on the board and expect them to do that with the utmost dedication.
