Parma vs Roma: Prediction
Parma, sitting at 10th place with four wins, two draws and five losses, claimed another important point on the road as they held Fiorentina to a 1-1 draw at Artemio Franchi. In a one-sided second half, the Gialloblu’s survided late Viola attacks to pick up their fifth point from last five league games. Without Inglese and Cornelius, they had to rely on Gervinho and Karamoh and the former fully delivered.
As it stands, Bruno Alves, Laurini, Grassi, Inglese and Karamoh should be considered as highly doubtful, most likely out, but Cornelius is finally back in the starting line-up.
The Giallorossi moved to 3rd place in the standings following a 2-1 win over fellow top 4 contender, Napoli. Roma starlet Nicolo Zaniolo was sublime yet again – he scored four goals for the club in last five games across competitions. Despite being shorthanded, team from the capital are on a six-game unbeaten run and they’ve won last three Serie A outings. With 22pts to their name, they’re six points behind Inter and seven behind Juve.
Zappacosta, Kalinic and Cristante are long-term absentees, Pellegrini and Mkhitaryan should be a back in a few weeks.
The Gialloblu’s have picked up three points from six games at Ennio Tardini. They have an average of 1.67 goals scored per game, whilst shipping 1.33 per bout. 50% of their matches had BTTS – Yes and Over 2.5 goals.
Roma are unbeaten on the road with 3-2-0 record. Paulo Fonseca’s side are scoring 1.60 goals per match on their travels, whilst allowing impressive 0.40 per tie.
With Gervinho, Kulusevski and Cornelius projected to start in 4-3-3 formation, Roberto de Zerbi will have a perfect combination of pace, skill and power. I can see them scoring against the Giallorossi, tired from Europa League game.
Roma should have enough in the tank to bag a few here with Edin Dzeko up-front, revived Pastore behind him and in-form Zaniolo, operating on the wings.
With 1-2 hunch, I’ll back goals on both ends and pick the guests to net at least two.
