Serie A Preview: Pressure awaits Parma when they meet with Roma

Updated: September 9, 2013

Even in Asian Sportsbooks, Serie A serves as one of the most interesting football venues to bet online. Tourneys involving teams like Parma and Roma are particularly attractive, pushing fan support to skyrocket to its peak during such occasions. On September 17, the aforesaid sides will be amassing their best drills to gratify their avid supporters. The fixture will take place at the Stadio Ennio Tardini, Parma’s home court.


Roma remain to be one of Italy’s top-level football’s strongest clubs, having started their campaign with two consecutive victories, thus far. Their meeting with Livorno 2-0 saw Francesco Totti produce one of his best assists, which allowed Daniele De Rossi to open the scoring. In the side’s duel with Verona 3-0, Totti again showcased his incredible knack for passing the ball, which enabled Miram Pjanic notch the side’s second goal for that match. In addition, new member Adem Ljajic gave his debut goal for his side in this match in the 66th minute. It is pretty impressive that while the Rudi Garcia-managed squad are still in the early stage of holding pieces together, they are already able to exemplify impressions. The side are excellent when it comes to attacking, but they need to be vigilant in terms of looking after their defense.


Parma were unsuccessful at scoring against Chievo in their opening tourney, eventually ending their face-off in a draw 0-0. Team boss Roberto Donadoni still needs to make his attacking ensemble work well together, especially that his side’s defeat from Udinese 1-3 just proved that the players are short of proper greasing. The team have already conceded two goals, which is more than the goals they have scored. Out of two matches, only Antonio Cassano delivered a goal for the team, but still not enough to help them move upward from their current placement at number 16.


Prediction: Roma sizzle with a comforting warmth, and slowing down in the league is certainly not an option for them to take. Parma will likely incur their second defeat in this match, and Roma should make this a pivot to sow their wild oats.
