Parma vs Udinese
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021
Kick-Off at 11.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini, Parma.
Parma have not been pulling up any trees lately and they seem to be the main candidates for the drop to Serie B football at the moment.
The Crociati are just incapable of scoring goals this season. They are on a dreadful run with ten losses and one draw in the last eleven matches across competitions.
Miraculously, the team led by Roberto D’Aversa can still save themselves with a strong series of results in the final quarter of the campaign.
After all, Crociatio are only four points shy of the safe zone ahead of the 23rd round clash against Udinese at Stadio Ennio Tardini.
The visitors will travel to Parma in much higher spirits having won two of the last three games. They did lose 3-0 to Roma, but that has never been the fixture they would expect something from.
Luca Gotti has reasons to be satisfied with his men’s recent defensive performances (outside of the mentioned loss at Roma).
Before the previous round, Le Zebrette conceded just one goal in four league outings, despite playing the likes of Atalanta and Inter in the process.
Parma vs Udinese Head-to-head
- Parma will heavily rely on the head to head tradition ahead of this match.
- I Crociati won 14, drew 3, and lost 5 of 22 home meetings with Le Zebrette.
- Udinese clinched a 3-2 victory when they took on Parma in the first part of the season at Dacia Arena.
- Interestingly, both teams scored in four of the last five head to head encounters.
Parma vs Udinese Prediction
Udinese are on a safe distance from the red zone (9 points away at the moment), but a potential defeat could cause them troubles moving forward. They are massive form favourites going into the tie (who wouldn’t be against such Parma) given that their rivals have lost ten of the last eleven matches in all competitions.
I Crociati only scored 3 goals in 11 league games at Stadio Ennio Tardini this season. They have by far the weakest attacking record in the whole competition (15 goals in 22 matches). Udinese kept three successive clean sheets before the last weekend’s loss at Roma. We have no other option but to back the away win to nil as the outcome here.
