Parma vs. Roma Predictions and Preview
Parma ended a four-game winless run last time out to record an impressive 1-0 victory at Fiorentina, but they remain in the bottom half of the Serie A standings.
Roma have won two of their last three in the league but only three of their last 10 and remain in sixth place – far below their potential of a top three finish.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s side have not won any of their last five matches away from home in Serie A and Parma have only lost at home to Juventus and Lazio this season.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 9/5.
One to watch for Parma: Roberto Inglese is Parma’s top league scorer thus far with five goals including the winner at Fiorentina last time out. He is priced at 14/5 to find the net here.
One to watch for Roma: Edin Dzeko has suffered in front of goal this season with just two Serie A strikes to his name but he is now getting back to fitness and odds of 7/5 in this game are good value.
Long shot: The last fixture between the two ended scoreless while Parma have managed just one goal across their last three matches. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 13/1.
