Sampdoria vs Parma Soccer Betting Tips
Parma will look to continue their upward climb when they visit Parma at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in the Serie A on Sunday.
Parma Match Form
I Crociati are looking to better their performance from last year, when they finished 14th, and are currently in the top half of the table. Roberto D’Aversa’s side are currently 8th in the league table, with 18 points from 14 games.
They are level on points with Verona in 9th while Napoli are a couple of points ahead of them. However, a substantial 7 points separate them from Atalanta in 6th while 5th-placed Roma are a further 3 points ahead.
While the gulf is higher at the top of the table, Udinese in 16th place are just 4 points behind. Thus, Parma will need to keep getting the right results if they want to fight for a European spot and losing to Milan is not an option like they did in the previous league game.
Sampdoria Match Form
Coming to their opponents, Sampdoria are struggling this season. After finishing 9th in the previous season, I Blucerchiati find themselves in 17th place at the moment. Claudio Ranieri’s side have picked up just 12 points from 14 games.
Further, they are just 2 points ahead of Genoa in 18th place, a worrying sight. However, only 6 points separate them from their visitors and a string of positive results could see them rise up the table in no time.
Thus, the home side have all the incentive to get the right result in this game, especially after suffering a 4-3 loss away to Cagliari last weekend.
Looking at team news, Parma are expected to be without Yann Karamoh and Roberto Inglese with a knee and ankle injury respectively. Coming to their opponents, Sampdoria have quite a few players missing with the likes of Andrea Bertolacci, Edgar Barreto and Fabio Depaoli all doubts for the game.
