Preview & Betting Tip
AS Roma - FC Parma On this Sunday will meet two teams in the 29th round of Italian Serie A, which were positioned around the middle of the table where in this moment Roma ranks the seventh and Parma the 12th, while the Crusaders have two points less than the Romans. However, in the first part of the season Parma at home won Roma 3-2, which finally brought to the end one uncomfortable string of five defeats and two draws in their mutual duels. Begins: 17.03.2013 – 20:45 CET
Of course that the Romans would do everything in their power to get back this lead again in front of their fans, especially because they are in a very good form. More precisely, the popular Wolves are in a big push because they stringed three wins and only one draw, against always unpleasant Udinese in an away game. In this way their backlog behind the leading teams has been significantly reduced, so by the end of the season they have very realistic chances for capturing one of the positions that leads in the European competitions. Otherwise, this revival of the Roma’s game could be certainly credited to the new coach Andreazzoli, who unlike his predecessor Zeman gave to certain players a lot more freedom in the game which immediately felt results wise. Most of all we here have in mind wingers Torosidis and Marquinha, who give a great contribution to the attack, while the rest of the team have somehow crystallized after several previous great parties. However, a major handicap for Roma is absence of the injured playmaker Pjanic, so his positioned will be covered by the returnee Bradley, while it should be noted that from before due to a serious injury there will be no the young striker Destra.
Probable lineups AS Roma: Stekelenburg – Piris, Burdisso, Castan – Torosidis, De Rossi, Bradley, Marquinho – Lamela, Osvaldo, Totti
Unlike the Romans, the Parma until last rounds was in a great crisis, given that they had a series of five defeats and only three draws, which after all, led to their decline to the lower half of the table. However, a week ago at home in a match against Torino they made ??a major breakthrough in the last 20 minutes and by the end even achieved one solid victory of 4-1. The merit fully goes to the striker Amauri for these three very important points for Parma, who in a very short period of time scored three goals, while one was assisted by 21-year Sansone, so it is quite realistic to expect that the two of them will lead Parma’s attack on Sunday at the Olympico. As for the rest of the team, it will likely remain unchanged from the match with Torino, while the wingers Rosi and Gobbi should play somewhat more withdrawn than usual. Let us say that still out of game due to injuries are defenders Santacroce, Coda and Mesbah and the midfielder Mariga.
Probable lineups FC Parma: Mirante – Benalouane, Paletta, Lucarelli – Rosi, Marchionni, Valdes, Parolo, Gobbi – Amauri, Sansone
AS Roma - FC Parma
Since the Parma is one of the worst visiting team in the league, it is really hard to believe that at this very match with confident and well prepared Roma will break the string of three consecutive defeats in away matches.
