      Tip Reasoning

      Will Chievo finally pick up their first win of the season in this weekend’s visit to Parma? The visitors are languishing at the bottom of the Serie A standings as we head towards the half-way point of the campaign. The Gialloblu are looking like certainties for a place in Serie B next term, given that they’ve become the whipping boys of the top flight so far. Will that reputation continue in this trip to newly promoted Parma? The hosts have already moved clear of the bottom three this season, and they’ll be expecting to add another three points to their tally in this clash.

      Parma are currently ninth in Serie A, following a strong run of form. They fell out of the European places last weekend, after posing a real test to AC Milan. They were beaten 2-1 at San Siro on Sunday, having led away to the Rossoneri. Returning home gives them the perfect chance to return to winning ways, as does facing off against a terrible Chievo outfit. Will the home side live up to their favourites tag in this one?

      Chievo’s league struggles were added to on Wednesday, as they slipped up against Cagliari. The Gialloblu were dumped out of the Coppa Italia in a midweek home defeat, leaving them with little to look forward to this term. They’ve already appointed and lost a former national team boss who felt the club were heading down after his four-game stint. They’ve got an 11 point gap between them and 17th, which is looking like an insurmountable gap for a side who just can’t win matches.

      It’s hard to expect things to turn around for Chievo here, given that they have the worst away record in Serie A. They’ve averaged just 0.33 points per game in the league this season in their away trips, which suggest more misery for them in this trip. Parma are fresh off a strong display against one of the top four sides in the league, and they’ll be in no mood to let that level of performance slip for a clash with the weakest side in the division.

      Chievo have lost four away trips already this season, and they head to a side who have won two of their last three games. It’s hard to see the winless visitors getting anything out of this one, having conceded 2.5 goals per game on their travels this season. On top of that, they’ve scored just five times in their 11 trips, which points to another loss here. With that in mind, the hosts are well priced for a victory, and we’re going with Parma for the win.
