Our prediction for this Serie B match:
After sharing the spoils with Cosenza at the weekend, Parma will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Serie B when they host Ternana to their Stadio Ennio Tardini. The Gli Emiliani are still seen as one of the main favourites for promotion, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to meet the goal. Midfielder Antoine Hainaut serves a one-game ban after picking up two early yellow cards in the last league match, while Roberto Inglese remains doubtful.
Ternana, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the Italian second tier. I Rossoverdi look unstoppable at the moment, but seeing that Parma have turned their “Ennio Tardini” into a real fortress, home win should be considered. To make things even more complicated for the visiting side, both Kees de Boer and Gregorio Luperini are banned for the match.
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.
