Parma vs Sassuolo Prediction
There has been no shortage of goals when it comes to the clashes between these sides, especially when the Crusaders are hosting the game. It has been seen that both teams have netted at least one goal in six of the last eight meetings between them. Moreover, all the clashes held at the Parma grounds has witnessed both teams finding the back of the net eventually.
Parma has been unbeaten against the Watermelon Rinds in the previous two encounters. Besides that, they have lost only once to the opposition when playing at home. Alongside that, the home team has won three of the last five home matches. Moreover, the traveling side is on a winless drought for the past four away fixtures.
As such, the match will probably display goals on either end and lend more chance for the host to win. Also, as the current form of the Crusaders are not favorable, one might as well take a double chance in the upcoming clash.
