Parma vs Sampdoria
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 5 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma).
Sampdoria gave up the contest for European spots in the next season with a pair of successive defeats to Bologna and Lazio in past two rounds. They fell down to 9th position in the league ladder and are as many as seven points shy of 8th-placed Lazio now as a consequence.
Le Samp were not pulling u any trees lately as they lost four of past five league outings actually.
Marco Giampaolo’s men scored only two goals in four defeats along the way. They now have nothing but pride to play for in four remaining matches of the season.
To make things worse for Giampaolo, he will be without an important midfielder Gaston Ramirez who was sent off in the first half of the mentioned 1-2 home loss to Lazio last weekend.
Parma are eight points clear off the red zone and they will go into this on the back of four consecutive draws in the league. A win here would likely remove all doubts about another top flight campaign for I Crociati.
Can they take advantage of Sampdoria’s slump in from to claim a three-pointer on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Ennio Tardini?
Parma vs Sampdoria: Head-to-head
Parma are playing against the head to head tradition here.
Sampdoria won three and drew one of past four H2H clashes with I Crociati.
Le Samp notched at least two goals in each of last four head to head encounters with Parma.
Nonetheless, we have to say Parma were much more successful in games at Stadio Ennio Tardini where they won 9, drew 4 and lost 4 of 17 ties with Le Samp.
Parma vs Sampdoria: Prediction
Parma played rock-solid defense recently under Roberto D’Aversa. I Crociati conceded only two goals in past four league outings and they’ve played the likes of Torino and Milan along the way.
Knowing they will be up against out-of-form opposition who failed to score more than two goals in four defeats in past five league rounds, we would not be surprised to see another clean sheet for Parma here.
The value is huge with the hosts not to lose at 1.57, while braver tipsters can back I Crociati to win at 3.00.
