Our prediction for this Serie B match:
Parma will look to make amends for a heavy 4-0 loss to Lecce when they welcome Cosenza to their Stadio Ennio Tardini on Sunday afternoon. The Gli Emiliani are three points behind the playoffs berth, and, no doubt, they are eager to get back on course in the Serie B as soon as possible. Midfielder Simon Sohm has yet to recover from a long-term injury, while both Lautaro Valenti and Drissa Gui Camara will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Cosenza, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Lecce and Reggina. The Lupi have been producing poor displays on the travels this season (0-1-5), which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. Both Eboa Ebongue (midfielder) and Andrea Tiritiello (defender) are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Andreas Cornelius):
The 23-year-old Danish international Andreas Cornelius plays as a striker for F.C. Copenhagen. Product of the youth set-up, Cornelius started his professional career at F.C. Copenhagen in 2012 when he joined the first-team of the Danish giants. His first goal for Copenhagen came in the very first game of the new season 2012-13 against Odense, when Cornelius scored an opening goal in a 2-2 draw.
Cornelius’ immediate impact and impression in the first-team quickly made him the fan favourite. The Danish striker became one of the most popular players of the club despite playing only one full season with the first team before he was transferred to Cardiff City in 2013. Cornelius was unfortunate to sustain a recurrent ankle injury which prevented him from making his stamp in the new team and which also reduced his playing time to only 8 Premier League performances.
Not only did Cornelius miss three months of club football, but he also failed at the chance to compete for his country in their final qualification games for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Cornelius ended up returning to Copenhagen in January 2014, where he has so far played more than 65 matches and enjoyed 18 goals.
