Parma vs Sassuolo
Date: Sunday, 25 November 2018
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK/12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma)
The hosts are fresh from a win in their last league game against Torino. At present they are unbeaten in the last 2 games. With 5 wins and losses each, they are 11th in the league. The Crusaders are not exactly on a scoring form. While scoring a goal per game, they have conceded 15 goals already.
In 5 of their recent league matches across all venues, they managed to win; and lose, 2 games each. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of their last 5 league matches also. A similar form is present in their last 5 home games also, which produced 2 wins and defeats. Four of their previous matches in front of home crowd had under 2.5 goals at the final whistle.
Meanwhile, Sassuolo is unbeaten in their last 4 league fixtures, which includes 1 win and 3 draws. They have won against Genoa and lost only to teams that are in the top 5 of the table like Juve, Milan, and Napoli. But their inability to win matches has been a problem to consider for manager Roberto De Zerbi.
After 12 rounds completed his team are 7th in the table with 5 wins and 3 defeats till now.
But away form is not so convincing for the Black and Greens. In their recent 5 games on the road, they have lost 2 and won the same number of games. Under 2.5 goals came in 4 of the last away fixtures.
Sassuolo has had some tough opponents in their league so far, and the win against Torino is the only good result for the hosts lately. So most probably the visitors will walk away with 3 points in this match.

Parma vs Sassuolo: Prediction
Sassuolo is on a 4 match unbeaten streak in the league. Also, they have not lost the last 2 away games in the league.
Since they are on a form I don’t see them losing here too, also in the light of a 2 match winless run of their hosts. Thus a bet can be placed on an away win with 1.65 odd.
In half of both their league games under 2.5 goals were scored in total. In 4 of the 6 away matches that Sassuolo played the score was below 2.5 goals. The same trend is visible in the last 4 home and away matches of the hosts and visitors respectively. Both the teams are struggling to find goals recently. So we can bet on a score of under 2.5 goals in this match with 2.00 odd.
