Parma (@2.75) vs Sassuolo (@2.62)

Our Prediction:

Sassuolo will win

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

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.

The Neroverdi rolled over SPAL 3-0 on home soil at the weekend, but given their poor away record in the Italian top flight, we believe that they are going to share the spoils with Parma on Matchday 5. Sassuolo, on the other hand, continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Experienced attacker Gervinho, who has netted one goal in four appearances for Parma this term, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home side.

Italy Serie A Predictions

Experienced attacker Gervinho, who has netted one goal in four appearances for Parma this term, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home side. The Neroverdi rolled over SPAL 3-0 on home soil at the weekend, but given their poor away record in the Italian top flight, we believe that they are going to share the spoils with Parma on Matchday 5. Sassuolo, on the other hand, continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels.

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. 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.

There are two points separating the two sides who are still on a rather safe distance from the red zone. Anyhow, a defeat here could potentially complicate things and wrap one of these two outfits up into the relegation scrap, especially Parma who are six points above the danger area at the moment. Mid-table rivals Sassuolo and Parma will take on each other on Sunday afternoon at MAPEI Stadium Citta del Tricolore.

Highlighted Player (Domenico Berardi):

While Parma are looking back on back to back home defeats, they lost that clash with Cagliari despite conceding an xG Against of just 0.68. The Sardinians got lucky with a few long-range efforts, so we expect a more balanced game when these two clash on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Sassuolo have won once in 13 league games, so this is an opportunity for the home side.

Parma were beaten 2-0 at Lazio on Sunday night, a straightforward game in which Parma rarely troubled the capital side. After losing at home to Juventus on the opening day of the season, Parma could really use a little bit of joy at their own ground. That was Parmas second defeat on the spin, following a 3-1 loss to Cagliari here.

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.

2019-20 Serie A Parma vs Sassuolo Preview & Prediction

Parma have yet to win the Serie A trophy, but they did well to lift the UEFA Cup trophy on two occasions (1994/1995, 1998/1999). The Gialloblu play home games in white shirts with a dark blue cross and dark blue shorts. Founded in 1913, Parma is considered one of the most famous Italian clubs. Speaking of their away colours, Parma footballers wear yellow-blue kits on the travels.
