Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma).
Udinese outplayed Parma in the reverse fixture, but Gialloblu’s were absolutely clinical going forward, scoring three goals from three shots on target. Gervinho toyed with their wing-backs and central defenders. With him being doubtful, in-form Zebrette will fancy their chances of staying unbeaten.

Parma vs Udinese: Preview
The Gialloblu’s slumped to their second consecutive road loss as they fell to a 1-2 defeat at Juventus. Roberto D’Aversa’s side played rather well against the perennial champions, recorded seven shots on target, but ended-up empty handed.
They remained 7th in the standings, just two points off of Cagliari, but an improved AC Milan are behind only on goal difference. ‘I Crociati’ will be looking to bounce back against another black & white side on Sunday.
Parma have recorded five wins, one draw and four losses at Ennio Tardini this season, netting 1.50 goals per match whilst conceding a goal per bout. They have racked up seven points from last five home fixtures (2-1-2).
Udinese’s three-game winning streak came to a painful end as they suffered a last-minute defeat to AC Milan at San Siro. Before that, Zebrette defeated Cagliari (2-1), Lecce (1-0) and Sassuolo (3-0).
With the win draw lose record of 7-3-10, Udine are 14th in the standings, tied on points with 11th-placed Napoli, but their shocking GF of minus twelve puts them behind the Azzurri, Bologna and Fiorentina.
On the road, Lucca Gotti’s side picked up seven points from ten matches, averaging 0.90 goals scorer per game and allowing 2.10 in return. They have lost four of their last five away matches.

Parma vs Udinese: Prediction
The Sunday’s visitors outplayed Parma in the reverse fixture, but Gialloblu’s were absolutely clinical going forward, scoring three goals from three shots on target and Gervinho toyed with their wing-backs and central defenders. With him being doubtful, I will take revived Udinese in the double chance market.
As for my second bet, I will pick goals on both ends. I had the same bet in Parma-Lecce game, but Salentni failed to make it count. Udinese have scored nine goals in last five league outings and I’m confident they will find the back of the net here.
Maybe a 1-1 draw? That works. Good luck!
