Our Prediction:

Parma – Sassuolo Match Prediction | 26-09-2019 15:00

Born in Cairati, Calabria, the forward begun his professional career back in 2012, when he helped the Neroverdi win Serie B and play in Serie A next season and was named as the best player of the competition, only 18 years of age. Once one of the most promising young players in Serie A, Domenico Berardi is the Italian footballer that plays for Sassuolo and the Italy national team.

Laurini wears No. 2 shirt for the Azzurri and he made 25 league appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign. He signed for Carpi in 2010 and one year later he signed a new five-year deal with Biancorossi. The Empoli full-back was born in Thionville, France, but he is eligible to play for both France and Italy. Laurini played 57 games for Carpi and in 2012 he decided to move to Empoli.

Of the two teams, at the same price, we would much rather be with Sassuolo in this one, they come here on the back of a good win and look in a nice position moving forward. The away side look good value in a game that the bookmakers have priced up fairly even. The home side have been struggling recently and Sassuolo look more than capable of inflicting more pain on them here.

Anyhow, seeing that Sassuolo crushed Chievo 4-0 in their last home fixture in the Italian top flight, they are definitely capable of beating Parma at their MAPEI Stadium Citta del Tricolore. The Gli Emiliani, on the other hand, have been totally out of form of late. Following three consecutive defeats in the league, Parma played out a goalless draw with Torino at the weekend and seeing that the Neroverdi are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the newcomers will return home empty-handed.

Highlighted Player (Vincent Laurini):

They have lost both their away games in the league ties. The Watermelon rinds have gathered six points in the league until now and are three points ahead of the host. They do lack the ground advantage which will put to test their strength on stranger grounds in the league. Sassuolo had a mixed start to the season with alternate wins and losses in the fixture.

Sassuolo has the same number of points as the Parma but they have a bit better goal difference 7:7 and at the moment they are in the 13th place. When they are playing away their results arent so good, they recorded just 1 win and 4 losses. They scored at least one goal in all those matches even against stronger opponents than the one they are about to clash now, so I believe that this time will be no different.

There has been no shortage of goals when it comes to the clashes between these sides, especially when the Crusaders are hosting the game. It has been seen that both teams have netted at least one goal in six of the last eight meetings between them. Moreover, all the clashes held at the Parma grounds has witnessed both teams finding the back of the net eventually.

They have a 31-31 goal difference in 16 home outings. Knowing also about the head to head record as well as Parmas lack of meticulousness at the back in latest away fixtures, backing Sassuolo to net two or more goals in the match is a must at the odds of 1.80. They found goals easy to come by in recent weeks. The hosts fancy attacking-minded style under Roberto De Zerbi.

Sassuolo were 4-0 down at the break in their last away game. Despite that, theyre now eighth in the table themselves. However, theyve kicked off the season with trips to two of last seasons top eight. This is a much better test of their abilities, but its worth remembering that the Neroverdi had a tough time when it came to facing any side away from home last season.
