Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Following a 2-0 win over FeralpiSalo in their opener, Parma will look to climb to top position when they take on Cittadella on Saturday evening. The Gli Emiliani made a promising start to the season, with talented midfielder Adrian Bernabe sealing the victory against the newcomers. The Spaniard is pushing for a start, while Lautaro Valenti misses out with an ACL injury. Drissa Gui Camara faces race against the clock to bet fit for the match.
La Citta, on the other hand, defeated Reggiana at the weekend thanks to Francesco Ametucci’s goal, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Parma, who have turned their Stadio Ennio Tardini into a real fortress. Even though veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon decided to hang up gloves earlier this summer, home win should be considered as boss Fabio Pecchia has a number of talented footballers to choose from.
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.
