Parma take on the visitors Lazio at the Stadio Ennio Tardini in the 9th tour of the Serie A TIM. The match will be played in the eponymous city Parma on Sunday, October 21st.
Parma have been showing their high level match after match so far this Serie A TIM season after coming back to the most prestigious Italian football league. They are too good now to compete for staying in the Serie A TIM only so they are likely to pretend on some place in the Eurocups zone. The Crociati have already beaten Empoli, Genoa, Cagliari and Internazionale already this season. Furthermore, their victory over Internazionale has happened on the away field. In their recent fixture against Juventus they have lost in the end but have given a fair fight to La Vecchia Signora overall. They have drawn the first half of that game but have fallen apart in the second and have lost with a 1-2 score in the end. Even though the team of Roberto D`Aversa is on the ninth place in the table at the moment they are only three points behind Internazionale who place third. Overall, Gli Emiliani have been quite productive recently. They have a 10-9 goal difference to their credit at the moment. Interestingly, four of their eight fixtures this Serie A TIM season have ended with over 2.5 goals scored. In their last three matches Parma beat Genoa with a 3-1 score, Empoli with a 1-0 score and lost to Napoli with a 0-3 score.

Lazio have been scoring a lot and conceding a lot too recently. Last season they had an 89-49 goal difference to their credit. Now I Biancoleseti have an 11-9 goal difference to their credit after eight starting tours of the Serie A TIM. Furthermore, five of their last six games ended with over 2.5 goals scored. The streak ended exactly last tour when they beat Fiorentina modestly with a 1-0 score. It should be said though that the Viola have been among the best Italian teams recently judging by their defensive play. The goal they have conceded from Lazio has been only the sixth for them so far this season. Only Juventus have allowed less goals than Fiorentina so far. In their last three matches Lazio beat Fiorentina with a 1-0 score, lost to Eintracht Frankfurt with a 1-4 score in their UEFA Europa League group stage fixture and to Roma with a 1-3 score.
Even though Lazio are considered the favourite in the lead-up to the upcoming fixture Parma could surprises really opponent realistically. The Crociati have already done that against Internazionale and Juventus already this Serie A TIM season. Thereby it is hard to predict the winner for the game between the teams on Sunday. However, it is quite easy to predict a lot of goals being scored in the upcoming match. Both Parma and Lazio have been leaning on their respective offensive lines recently and have been looking weak in the defense. There are a lot of great attackers in the squad of I Biancocelesti. For example, Ciro Immobile who has already scored five goals this season, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Felipe Caicedo. The Crociati on the other hand are tough as a unit. Seven different players of the team have scored ten goals overall for Parma so far this season. Considering all of these factors it is likely that there will be over 2.5 goals scored in the upcoming fixture. Furthermore, in their last four games between them Parma and Lazio had exactly over 2.5 goals scored in all of them.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored.
