Sassuolo vs Parma Prediction & Betting tips
Sassuolo and Parma are in the middle bracket and are close to yet another season at the highest level. The first meeting between these teams this season ended in 2-1 for Parma. Gervinho gave Parma the lead after six minutes. The Ivorian appears to have recovered from an injury and can make his comeback this weekend. Is he important again?
For Sassuolo it is already a failed season. The team started off furiously and was still in fourth place after seven rounds. The team had already made 15 hits at that time, more than half of the total number of last season after 38 rounds (29 of them). Sassuolo, however, lived far above her position and soon came to the eighth position where the team was expected. It stayed here until the middle of the season, after which attack leader Kevin-Prince Boateng (five goals and two assists in thirteen duels) was let to Barcelona and the European spots quickly disappeared. Since the beginning of 2019, the team has fluctuated between eleventh and fourteenth place and there is little to cheer for the fans of I Neroverdi. Only two of the last sixteen matches were won and in the meantime the defense was humiliated several times (2-6 at home against Atalanta, 3-0 at Empoli, 3-5 at home against Sampdoria). Moreover, the team of coach Roberto de Zerbi was eliminated in the Coppa Italia by Napoli and there is therefore little honor to be gained this season.
Like Sassuolo, Parma is also not in good shape in 2019. Of the last eleven games, only one was won and no fewer than seven were lost. In the past month, the defense of Parma swallowed goals as if it were nothing. There was a 4-1 defeat at Lazio, at home 1-3 were lost to Atalanta and it even gave up three goals in Frosinone (3-2). Last weekend there was finally a small success again, in own home 0-0 was played against number eight Torino. The 21-year-old attacking left back Federico Dimarco was one of the few on the Parma side who managed to impress, although his teammates in the front made little use of his moves and actions.
There are still many question marks around the Parma line-up. Striker Roberto Inglese does not seem to make it, Gervinho may make his return and also their intended replacement Fabio Ceravolo is not 100% fit. Also in a defensive way there are several players injured and so we could see both a 4-5-1 and 3-5-2 on Sunday.
