Udinese vs Parma
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 1 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Friuli (Udine).
Udinese’s Serie A campaign got off to a great start as they picked up a 1-0 victory over AC Milan at Friuli. Igor Tudor’s men looked solid at the back and threatening going forward and they will be looking to grab another win at home before the international break. ‘Le Zebrette’ finished 12th last season with the W-D-L record of 11-10-17.
Parma narrowly lost to perennial Seria A champs Juventus in the opening round. They fought well, but looked toothless in attack. Still, it’s Juve, and no one can really blame them. Parma need to focus on getting points against similar and lower rated teams in order to avoid relegation scrap.

Udinese vs Parma: Prediction
I did the math. Udinese had 33 shots combined against Parma last season and almost ended up empty-handed. ‘Le Zebrette’ looked much better, at home in particular with 65% of the ball possession, but failed get a positive result. Let’s hope they will be more clinical on Sunday.
Parma managed to surprise couple of teams on the road last season, not just Udinese. They’ve beaten Inter, Fiorentina, Genoa and Torino. Their last victory away from home came in January, though, and now they’re on 9-game winless streak. During that span, ‘Gialloblu’ conceded 22 goals and scored 13.
That’s why I’m going to pick a home win, and BTTS as an alternative bet.
