It was Parma who secured the bragging rights when the two sides locked horns at this very same stadium back in November. However, Roma will certainly not be entertaining the humiliating prospect of admitting back to back defeats to the same foe.
Hence, count on the visitors to have their guns blazing this week.

Parma vs Roma Prediction
Despite being the odds-on favorite, Parma edged past second-tier side Frosinone in the previous round by no more than a slender 2-1 scoreline. It was certainly a close call by all means, as the scores were tied at 1-1 during the closing stages of that game. However, the hosts were handed a penalty late into stoppage time which Hernani made no mistake in converting.
It is also worth mentioning that Parma have now stumbled just once in their past four games, the last of which was at the hands of Atalanta by a whopping 5-0 scorecard.
On the other hand, Roma were at the losing end at home for the second time on the trot after Juventus took them down with a 2-1 scorecard. Be that as it may, the visiting contingent have been faring a lot better on the road this season.
They are unbeaten in their past four outings across various competitions and have come away with the win thrice in the process.
Furthermore, Parma have tasted success just once in their previous four meetings with this foe here. With AS Roma desperate to return to winning ways, count on the guests to put nothing but their best forward and to come out on top in this one.
Additionally, the guests know their way around in the final third. Impressively, they have found the back of the net ten times from their last four outings alone.
Meanwhile, thirteen of the twenty-four goals for Parma in the Serie this term have come from their clashes on home soil. Taking into account that three of their past five h2h games here have also been high scoring affairs, expect no dearth of goals come Thursday.
