Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Parma will be looking to kick off the new Serie B campaign in style when they take on Frosinone at Stadio Benito Stirpe on Friday evening. The Gli Emiliani suffered a 3-1 loss to Parma in their Coppa Italia opener, and it is no surprise the odds for Frosinone’s win have been dropping. A man to watch in the away team will be Gianluigi Buffon, who returned to the club earlier this summer.
There are no absentees in the away team ahead of the season opener. The Canarini, on the other hand, aim to make amends for the Coppa Italia defeat to Venezia. Since Charpentier is the only absentee in the home team, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. When the two teams met in the Serie A two years ago Frosinone defeated Parma 3-2.
Highlighted Player (Francesco Zampano):
Francesco Zampano is a product of Sampdoria’s youth school. The pacey full back, who is capable of playing as a midfielder as well, began his senior career at Entella, making 51 league appearances for the club between 2011 and 2013. At the end of the 2012/2013 campaign he moved to Verona, but he was immediately sent on loan to Juve Stabia.
After playing 33 league games for the club in the 2013/2014 season, he signed a loan deal with Pescara. In July, 2015 Zampano signed a permanent deal with Pescara and it has to be noted that he made 38 league appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Serie B campaign.
The Italian footballer, who was born in Genoa on 30 September, 1993, has three caps for Italy U20, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior team. His contract with Pescara expires on 30 June, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Parma):
Founded in 1913, Parma is considered one of the most famous Italian clubs. The Gialloblu play home games in white shirts with a dark blue cross and dark blue shorts. Speaking of their away colours, Parma footballers wear yellow-blue kits on the travels. 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).
To make things even better for Parma fans, the Gialloblu won the European Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1992/1993 season, with the team beating Royal Antwerp in the title game 3-1. A number of top-class footballers played for Parma in the past: Hernan Crespo, Roberto Mancini, Juan Veron, Roberto Mancini, Dino Baggio, Fabio Cannavaro and Gianluigi Buffon.
The Gialloblu welcome their rivals at Stadio Ennio Tardini, which was opened in 1923. The venue can hold up to 27,906 spectators. Bologna are considered Parma’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
