Our prediction for this Serie B match:
There will be fireworks when Parma and Modena go head to head at Stadio Ennio Tardini in the Serie B round 14. The Gli Emiliani aim to recover from a 3-2 loss to Lecco, with the team eyeing their fourth home win of the process, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Experienced midfielder Hernani misses out through suspension, while both Lautaro Valenti and Adrian Benedyczak remain in the recovery room.
The Canarini, meanwhile, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Sampdoria and seeing that Parma have turned their “Tardini” into a real fortress, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from the match. Midfielder Fabio Abiuso misses out through suspension, whereas all Luca Strizzolo, Fabio Gerli, and Mario Gargiulo are major doubts and the trio will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
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.
