Roma vs Parma
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 8 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
La Lupa are in danger of being replaced from the sixth spot if they keep up with their run of consecutive losses. Their hard work throughout the season will go down the drain, if the team does not figure out a way to perform well in these remaining eight match-ups.
As of now, they have 48 points, and are in the sixth position. However, the in-form Napoli and AC Milan are just below them, with 48 and 46 points respectively. As such, Paulo Fonseca’s men could find themselves in the eighth spot after this game week, if they are not careful.
However, it helps them that they are taking on Gli Emiliani this Wednesday, over whom they have an impressive h2h record. Especially at this venue La Lupa have been massively superior in such games, that they are unbeaten since 1997.
As such, expect Roma to secure the much-needed three points at the Stadio Olimpico.
Roma vs Parma: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture saw Fonseca’s men win with a 0-2 scoreline on the road.
- 26 of the preceding 30 wins had gone to them as well.
- They had also scored two or more goals in eight of the preceding ten games.
- Since 2001, disregarding two draws, the hosts have won every single encounter at this ground.
- Six of the former nine clashes at this venue saw the home team keeping clean sheets.
Roma vs Parma: Prediction
La Lupa lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Napoli. It must have been hurtful that the hosts slotted in the winner in the 83rd minute. Meanwhile, Gli Emiliani lost 1-2 at home the past game week, against Fiorentina.
As things stand, Fonseca’s men are easily the favorites for the day. They are one of the best teams in the league, and they are desperate for the three points. They had also won three of their former four appearances at home, while their counterparts are on a three-fixture losing run.
Moreover, La Lupa have won every single h2h encounter at this venue since 2001 barring two match-ups, and have lost just once here since 1991. In addition, they had also won the reverse fixture, and that too with a clean sheet.
Taking into account these observations, expect a winning performance from Roma this Wednesday.
