Bologna vs Parma Prediction & Betting tips
Both teams were already close together last season. Bologna landed in twelfth place with 47 points. Parma was able to take two more points, which was enough for the position ahead. In the current Serie A table, both teams share 15th place. Both teams lost their opening game last weekend 2-0 and now want to score their first points in the Derby dell’Emilia.
The odds comparison of the betting base shows that in the run-up to the game between Bologna and Parma, the odds turned towards the home side, who lost only one of their last 14 home games against Parma.
However, it should also be taken into account that five of the last six duels between Rossoblu and Gialloblu ended in a draw. There is also a lot to be said for goals. Bologna recently conceded one goal in 18 consecutive home games in Serie A. Only Verona played less often to zero between 2015 and 2017. Meanwhile, Parma also conceded at least one goal in 15 games in a row.
We expect a close match and recommend the next draw between the two clubs at Bologna against Parma. Really courageous tipsters could even go for a draw with goals.
Bologna FC has won the Italian championship seven times. However, the Rossoblu brought the last Scudetto to Emilia-Romagna in the 1963/64 season, where times have not been easy since then. Between 2005 and 2008 and in the 2014/15 season, the Veltri only played in Serie B.
At least in terms of play, things went well in the preseason for Siniša Mihajlović’s team, who, as twelfth in the final table with a comfortable twelve point lead on the first relegation place, had no trouble getting the league under wraps early on.
Rather, the coach’s illness overshadowed the sporting events in Emilia-Romagna from time to time. Siniša Mihajlović became ill with leukemia, as he announced in July 2019. Those responsible immediately gave him a job guarantee and said that he could stay in office for as long as he could.
A commitment that may soon have to be put to the test if the Veltri should now experience a false start. On the first day of the match, Bologna suffered a 2-0 defeat at AC Milan. This means that, across all seasons, there is only one three-point from the last nine games in Serie A.
The last time Bologna lost its first two league games as a newly promoted team was in the 2015/16 season. The Rossoblu have won the Derby dell’Emilia only once in the last six attempts in Serie A. The prestige duel against Parma ended five times with the division of points.
Against this background, it makes a lot of sense, also due to the fact that Mitchell Dijks is now suspended after being sent off in Milan, to hint at the point-sharing tip at Bologna against Parma.
Parma Calcio has also celebrated the Italian championship three times and was able to cause a sensation several times, especially in the phase between 1992 and 2002, when the UEFA Cup was won twice and the European Cup Winners’ Cup once.
But then this phase of greatest success turned into two bankruptcies in a row. Most recently, the kicker known as Crociati (in German: the crusaders) were re-established in the summer of 2015 and had to start over in the country’s fourth-highest league. Thanks to three successive ascents, the Gialloblu have been first class again since 2018.
Parma even knocked on the Europa League for much of the preseason under promotion coach Roberto D’Aversa.
Only a mixed second half prevented the preliminary high point of the high flight. After eleventh place in the final table, it was time for changes.
Fabio Liverani took over the coaching position and the first real offensive since promotion was launched on the transfer market. Previously, Parma mainly used loan players, but many of the loaned top performers such as Roberto Inglese, Yann Karamoh, Hernani and Luigi Sepe have now been committed.
There are also interesting players such as Jasmin Kurtic from relegated SPAL, the 19-year-old talent Mateo Likaxhiu from Sanremese and three home grown players from their own U19 who have now been brought to the professional squad. On paper, however, the Crociati still lack the depth in the squad, which coach Fabio Liverani, who is hoping for more newcomers, criticized.
Nevertheless, there was a clear 2-0 home defeat against SSC Napoli on the first matchday, which also affects the odds for this derby dell’Emilia between Bologna and Parma. So Parma travels as a clear underdog to Bologna, 100 km away.
