Parma vs Napoli
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 20 September 2020
Kick-off at 11:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini.
Parma will open their new season of Serie A at home with hopes for a good start. However, their hopes will likely meet a roadblock in the game as they are facing a stronger squad in the mix. Napoli will come in hot with a slightly better position in the last season league table.
The host had capped the last season fixtures with a 3-4 win on the road against Lecce. Significantly, their last five matches in the campaign have seen a similar one-goal margin despite the result. So, we can expect a tight game here at Ennio Tardini.
Napoli was at the 7th spot in the table last season while the host was behind them at 11th place. They had a 13 points lead over the home team in the league. They will visit on the back of a 3-1 win at home against Lazio in the schedule.

Parma vs Napoli Prediction
Parma is slightly off their form, and it will probably result in a loss at home. The host enjoys home ground advantage in the game, but their record against Napoli in the recent h2h games gives the visitor a slight edge in the fixture.
The host has only one win in their recent three h2h matches at home with the Blues. Besides, the Blues have improved their form playing in the Champions League last season. With those stats, the away win in full-time will probably the ideal choice in the encounter.
Another probable result at Parma is a high-scoring affair, which is why backing the tip for over 2.5 goals seems to be a suitable choice. Both teams have scored in the recent two h2h meetings and thus, the BTTS will probably be the best bet for the punters.
