Parma vs Verona: Prediction
Without Andreas Cornelius and Roberto Inglese, Parma needed an extra spark against Inter Milan, and Yan Karamoh stood out with a goal and an assist on his return to San Siro to help his side earn a positive 2-2 draw.
Roberto D’Aversa’s side have claimed 10 points from last five Serie A games and scored 11 goals the the process. They have won last three league outings at Stadio Ennio Tardini.
Grassi, Inglese and Bruno Alves are injured, Cornelius is doubtful.
Hellas Verona fell to a 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Sassuolo in the previous round. After Filip Djuricic broke the deadlock for the guests, the Scaligers went all-in in the search of an equalizer, but to no avail. With just six goals scored this season, it’s blatantly obvious they need a proper striker.
Bocchetti, Badu, Bessa, Pazzini are on the sidelines, but their stair midfielder Miguel Veloso should be back in the starting XI.
Parma have win-draw-lose record of 3-0-2 at Ennio Tardini this season. The Gialloblu’s are scoring two goals per game at this venue, whilst conceding 1.40 per match. With Inglese out and Cornelius questionable, they will have to rely on Kulusevski, Karamoh and Gervinho to deliver. Ivorian forwards tends to shine against teams that play with three at the back.
Helllas Verona picked up four points on their travels this season. They’ve beaten Lecce (1-0) on Matchday 2, drew with Cagliari (1-1) and lost to Juventus (1-2) and Napoli (0-2). The Scaligers are scoring 0.75 goals per game on the road and conceding 1.25 per bout.
The Gialloblu’s will be looking to extend their winning streak at Ennio Tardini. They picked up a road point against one of the best teams in the league and I can see them winning this one.
However, with Bruno Alves still out, I’ll take the hosts in safer, draw-no-bet market and pick them to open the scoring.
