Roma vs Parma

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
It’s Roma vs Parma on Wednesday night, Roma head into the game on the back of three defeats. Parma will be hoping to jump from 12th to 8th position in Serie A if they can make it four losses in a row for Roma.
Roma manager Paulo Fonseca will be desperate to avoid losing against Parma. Fonseca’s team have only won once (2-1 Sampdoria) since the return of Serie A. In their last outing the ‘Giallorossi’ went down 2-1 to Napoli in the San Paolo Stadium.
The recent form of both teams makes this match challenging to predict. However, I will give the home side the benefit of the doubt. Nonetheless, this game could easily end in a draw.
From a betting perspective, it might be safer to avoid the outright win markets and concentrate on Both Teams To Score (BTTS) market. Parma’s defence is reasonably leaky, and Roma is not without talent in front of the net. Boylesports has BTTS YES priced at 6/10.
Not many clubs can match Roma when it comes to recent poor form, apart from Parma! They went down 1-2 at home to Fiorentina on Sunday, previous they lost 3-2 away at Verona.
I can’t see the ‘Gialloblu’ doing enough to win in Rome. Yet, striker Andreas Cornelius might get on the scoresheet in this fixture. Currently, he’s quoted at 2/1 to score anytime and 8/1 to bag the first goal in the game.
If Parma can pull-off the unlikely and win in Rome, they will leapfrog several teams in Serie A. This might provide a significant motivational factor for D’Aversa’s men. Nevertheless, I feel the home side will have just enough to prevent Parma from winning this match.
The only doubt Parma have for this match is Centre-Forward Hernani. Roma will likely miss the following players, Diego Perotti, Pau Lopez and Nicolo Zaniolo.
