Whatever happened to Parma? The once promising squad has totally hit rock bottom and is forced to return to Serie B soon. Pitted against the online betting favorite, Verona, the club will simply play for honor’s sake since no amount of spectacular display could salvage them from their downfall.
Parma entered the season with so much confidence that they will qualify in the Europa League, following their impressive display in 2013/2014 tournament.
Yet, all of their dreams were suddenly destroyed and the ambition of playing in a bigger stage will no longer materialize.
Earning a saddening 17 points since the season started, the squad is on the verge of returning to Serie B.
Their match against Verona, no matter what the result is, will not save them. Yet, they can use this as their last attempt to save face.
Verona will definitely take advantage of its match against Parma. Already safe from relegation threats, the club will use this encounter to gain more points and snatch a stronger finish.
So far, Verona is undefeated in 5 of its last 6 matches.
Evidently, Verona is the only squad that will benefit from this encounter. With the vast difference in form and rank, it does not take rocket science to see that the visitor has the utmost edge in this encounter.
