Parma starts the season with a new coach – Fabio Liverani. Will the hosts be able to create real problems for the guests in the duel on September 20? – you will find the answer in our forecast.
The Crusaders had three friendly fights in preparation for the new season. They managed to outplay Carpi (2: 0) and Pro Sesto (6: 0). The team failed in the match with the stronger Empoli (0: 2). Last season the team finished in the middle of the standings, finishing 11th. It is unlikely that this year the team from the city of Parma will be able to seriously get involved in the struggle for the European cups.
On August 28, Fabio Liverani took over the team. “Parma” in the offseason has significantly increased. The most expensive transfer was the acquisition of Roberto Inglese from Napoli for 18 million euros.
Viktor Osimhen’s debut in Serie A is expected with great interest. This forward was signed by Napoli for 70 million euros. Among the losses in the team, we can note the departure of Allan to Everton and the transition of Simone Verdi to Torino.
In preparation for the start of the season, Rino Gattuso’s wards had two fights. They managed to beat Teramo and Pescara 4: 0.
The teams played against each other twice last season, where they exchanged victories
Parma managed to win only once from last 7 meetings at home arena last season
Napoli won 5 of their last 9 away games
22.07.20 Parma Napoli 2: 1
12/14/19 Napoli Parma 12
02.24.19 Parma Napoli 0: 4
09/26/18 Napoli Parma thirty
We believe that it will be extremely difficult for the hosts to oppose something to the guests. Fabio Liverani received the “crusaders” only three weeks ago. In preparation for the season, Parma lost to Empoli.
“Napoli” is very well prepared for the start of Serie A. Rino Gattuso’s charges have an advantage in the class. It should help them to get such an important starting victory in the season.
Our prediction is Napoli’s victory . In the bookmaker Winline, this outcome is offered with a coefficient of 1.64.
