Atlanta vs Parma
KICK OFF: Saturday 27th Oct 2018 | 15:00 CET
Serie A WK10 | Atleti Azzuri d’Italia
Back Parma to Defy the Odds and Avoid Defeat to Struggling Atlanta
Atalanta are on a bad run of form and are yet to record a win since their opening weekend of the season. Much is attributed to their inability to find goals given they registered zero in their past three games. Surprisingly, the only games they scored were against Roma and Milan, and away from home too, but they have struggled to put one past fellow mid-table and bottom teams. The bookies have them as huge favourites for this one but can they live up to the odds?
Parma are performing well since gaining promotion to top flight. They’ve won four of their last five games with only a defeat to Napoli damaging what could’ve have been a five-match winning streak. Former Arsenal forward, Gervinho, is excelling in this club, leading with three goals so far. Taking points from Atalanta isn’t an impossible mission given Parma’s free-scoring form. Even keeping a clean sheet is possible as they have already demonstrated with wins without reply against Inter, Cagliari, and Empoli, plus opponents Atalanta haven’t got much in the way of an attacking threat.
Backing Parma to go home unharmed looks appealing.
Key Match Facts
