Roma vs Parma
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Last weekend’s goalless draw away at Sassuolo kind of highlighted Roma’s underwhelming campaign in this term of Serie A.
It practically eliminated the Romans from the battle for the top-four finish and a place in the Champions League next season.
They currently sit sixth in the league ladder being three points shy of Atalanta and Inter Milan and two behind Milan in fifth.
La Lupa at least can’t be dropped out of top-six regardless of what happens on the final Matchday, given they have a better head to head record than seventh-placed Torino who are three points below.
Can Claudio Ranieri’s men finish the season on a high and pick up a three-pointer against non-motivated Parma on Sunday evening at Stadio Olimpico?
The visitors claimed salvation points seven days ago when they dispatched Fiorentina 1-0 at Stadio Enio Tardini.
The win moved Parma four points off Genoa in the red zone coming into this last round clash.
Roma vs Parma: Head-to-head
Roma rarely had troubles to come on top in matches against Parma.
La Lupa won 16, drew 5 and lost just 1 of 22 home outings with I Crociati.
Roma won five and drew one of last six meetings with Parma.
Roma vs Parma: Prediction
Roma had way too many slip-ups throughout the season. Ranieri will no doubts face an uphill battle to climb to raise spirits inside his dressing room ahead of the final round knowing his men have already lost the battle for the fourth-place finish.
On the other side, Parma have really been struggling to perform on travels in 2019. I Crociati are winless in last eight away fixtures in the league, a streak which saw them lose four matches along. They shipped at least three goals in five of last eight away outings.
With such dreadful defensive form Parma had on the road lately, as well as their horrific head to head record in matches against Roma, the comprehensive home win is the scenario we believe in here.
