Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport
In what should be an extremely lively contest at an empty Stadio Ennio Tardini on Wednesday evening, Napoli will make the trip to a Parma side in freefall.
Starting with the hosts, throwing away a 2-0 half-time lead against Sampdoria on Sunday and hit with a dramatic 3-2 defeat on home soil, Parma have endured on an abysmal end to the 2019/2020 campaign. Freefalling out the top-10 and the mood around the Stadio Ennio Tardini at a season-low, the Crusaders have managed to pick up just a single Serie A point over their last seven appearances. Along with shipping a trio of strikes over the weekend, Head Coach Roberto D’Aversa has been vocal about his side’s continued issues at the back. While Parma might have managed to now bag at least a consolation strike in their last 10 contests, they have failed to record a single clean sheet since the middle of February. Also now shipping over 1.5 goals in each contest on their seven-match winless run, each of Parma’s home matchups since the restart have seen over two goals by the final whistle.
As for the visitors, grabbing what was the most dramatic of stoppage time winners at home against Udinese over the weekend, Napoli’s 2-1 win finds them still sat in pole position to secure a top-six finish. Finally finding their feet under former AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso, the Light Blues have lost just a single contest across any format since February 9th. Also shocking many and beating Juventus to lift the Coppa Italia title last month, Napoli have continued to shine in the final third at the back end of the campaign. Creating a string of chances at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday evening, Gli Azzurri have recorded at least a pair of goals in seven of their last nine Serie A outings. with each of the last four meetings between Napoli and Parma seeing over 2.5 goals by the final whistle, we’re backing a similar outcome in midweek.
Bet: Over 2.5 goals at Parma vs Napoli 2/3 for Wednesday’s Serie A matchup @ 888sport
