Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Parma will look to restart 2023/2024 Serie B campaign in great manner when they take on Ascoli on Sunday afternoon. The Gli Emiliani aim to build on back-to-back wins over Ternana and Brescia and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. As Parma boss Fabio Pecchia has a full squad to choose from, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side.
The visitors, on the other hand, we having their ups and downs before the winter break, with the team beating Catanzaro, losing to Pisa, while sharing the spoils with Cittadella. Ascoli suffered a 3-1 loss to Parma earlier in the process and seeing that Gli Emiliani are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that William Viali’s men are going to return to Marche empty-handed.
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.
