Verona vs Parma
Italy Serie A
Date: Monday, 15 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Hellas Verona and Parma will drop the curtain on Matchday No 22 in Serie A on Monday evening when they take on each other at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Both teams will be hoping to snap their respective losing runs on the occasion.
However, the hosts are in a much better position going into the tie. They sit comfortably at the 10th position of the league ladder, being miles away from the relegation scrap despite losing three of the last four league affairs.
Parma are nowhere near such comfort. They sit second from bottom and are three points short of the safe zone at the moment. The head coach Roberto D’Aversa will have a mountain to climb to take this side to safe waters.
Right now, there is nothing to suggest brighter days for I Crociati who are struggling badly with the lack of efficiency these days. The team has lost three on the trot in the league, without scoring a single goal in the process.
Verona vs Parma Head-to-head
- Verona have been slightly more successful historically. They won 8, drew 2, and lost 6 of 16 matches against I Crociati.
- I Gialloblu won five and lost two of seven home meetings against Parma (interestingly, there were no draws along the way).
- Parma picked up a narrow 1-0 victory when the teams locked horns in the reverse fixture in the first part of the season.
Verona vs Parma Prediction
Another 1-0 win would be golden for Parma here. However, there is not much suggesting it really. Verona did lose three of the last four in Serie A, but all these defeats came on the road.
The team led by Ivan Juric won each of the last two league matches at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi netting five goals in the process (2-1 v Crotone and 3-1 v Napoli).
Parma lost last three league outings to Sampdoria, Napoli, and Bologna with a dreadful goal difference of 0-7 in the process.
We have no other option but to back the home win as the main betting option at the 2.00 odds.
You can alternatively back Hellas Verona to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 2.50 knowing they will be up against by far the worst attacking line in the division (Parma notched 14 goals in 21 league matches so far).
