Match Date: 18 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini


The match against Parma is Livorno’s final chance of securing a victory in the top-flight league. The Amarantos just lost its Serie A status and the situation just got more disappointing with the loss to Fiorentina.


Immediately after Livorno made it to Serie A, the club’s inability to sustain the (harsh) and fierce competition in the top-flight league forced them to return to the second division.


When asked about the reason behind the club’s relegation, its head honcho, Davide Nicola pointed out the team’s inconsistency. Likewise, he mentioned that the squad “started off at a handicap,” which readily impeded their Serie A campaign.


Livorno is off to a losing streak as it has not won a single match in its last 6 encounters. They also lost 6 of their most recent away clashes and conceded an average of 2 goals.


Parma, which is the evident, online betting favorite of the match, has a much better form to brag. The club has won, lost and drew twice in its last 6 encounters. The club looks forward to this upcoming match as an opportunity nail a stronger finish.


Just recently, Parma forced a draw against Torino. Top brass, Roberto Donadoni was duly satisfied in the said performance, although it prevented them from overtaking Torino in Serie A’s hierarchy. When questioned about the possibility of taking over AC Milan, Donadoni stressed his commitment to Parma.
