Reason For Parma vs Bologna Predictions

  • Bologna have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 26 league games
  • The visitors have scored 10 goals in five away games, winning four of those
  • Parma have seen both teams score in their last six games
  • The hosts have lost by a single goal in 88% of their home defeats

Parma on the slide

Parma returned to action in the European race, and kick-started that push with four points from their first two games since returning. However, they have fallen apart since, losing four matches on the spin. That has pushed them into the bottom half of the table, a full 10 points shy of the European spots.

Things are looking brighter for Bologna, who have an eight-point gap to Europe after a solid run of form. While that’s still quite a gap to bridge to the top seven, there are more reasons for optimism for the Rossoblu than for Parma ahead of their weekend encounter.

Bologna keep pushing forward

Bologna were the latest side to be caught out by Sassuolo, losing 2-1 to the high-scoring Neroverdi in midweek. That defeat saw the Rossoblu caught out defensively, as their wait for a clean sheet dragged on. The visitors have now failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 26 Serie A games, while they’ve conceded a goal in 94% of their league matches this term.

Bologna’s attacking intent has cost them at the back, but they’ve been an impressive side to watch going forward. They create almost 15 chances per match, so they should cause problems for a Parma side who are looking defensively frail. Having scored 10 goals in their last five away trips – winning four of them – the Rossoblu certainly carry a threat as they head to the Tardini.

Defensive issues for hosts

Parma have seen both teams score in each of their last six games since the restart. They’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last seven, so we are expecting goals in this one. Both teams to score is our pick here given that it has landed in 77% of the visitors’ games this term. With the duo drawing 2-2 in their last clash earlier this season, we think there’s value in backing goals at the Tardini.

Parma come into this clash with four straight defeats behind them and we feel that could get worse this weekend. They’ve been beaten in each of their last four home matches, while Bologna’s away form puts them in a great position to win this encounter. Having claimed three wins in four on the road – including back to back 2-1 victories – we are backing Bologna to claim a 2-1 win having seen Parma lose by a single goal in 88% of their home defeats.
