Roma vs Parma
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 22 November 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Roma made the top 4 cut with wins over Fiorentina (2-0) and Genoa (1-3) in their last two Serie A outings and outclassed Cluj (5-0) in Europa League along the way.
The Giallorossi return to Serie A hosting Parma and hoping to build on the streak, where they impressed in the final third and looked a serious contender for the spots leading to Champions League.
Paulo Fonseca’s men struggled for consistency beforehand but now feel reinvigorated and we expect to see them very motivated to build on it. They scored a total of ten goals in three November outings and could be tough to cope with on Sunday afternoon.
Roma sit just three points behind AC Milan at the top and this could show as well.
Parma have shown off as a tough side to beat lately and they travel to Olimpico with a four-match unbeaten streak behind them.
The Gialloblu beat Pescara (3-1) in Coppa Italia but earned just three points in three games, as they shared spoils with Spezia (2-2), Inter Milan (2-2), and Fiorentina (0-0).
The visitors will want at least a point now too but we don’t see them snatching it!
Roma vs Parma Head-to-head
- Roma beat Parma twice in 2020 already, bagging Serie A points (2-1 in July) and making their way past the rivals in Coppa Italia (0-2 in January).
- Giallorossi scored two goals each in four of the last five head-to-head clashes.
- Parma earned just a single win in ten encounters since 2013.
Roma vs Parma Prediction
We will back Roma to build on such records against Parma and we’ll back them to snatch all three points in another exciting display, going for a Home win & Over 3.5 Goals FT at eye-catching 2.87.
Still, we don’t see it as smooth sailing and Parma should be able to have their say in it as well.
Indeed, the visitors have been scoring goals quite regularly when away from home and we see them doing the same in Rome.
We will thus also go for a YES on Both teams to score, which comes at 1.57 and conveys Roma’s struggles to put on convincing displays at the back ahead of the International break.
