Parma will host a struggling SPAL at the Stadio Ennio Tardini on Sunday (December 18) in Serie B as they look to embark on a winning streak. The Crociati beat Brescia 2-0 in their last outing for their first win in four games to climb to fifth in the standings with 26 points in 17 games. It’s their second straight season in the second division, having been relegated from Serie A at the end of the 2020-21 season after two years in the top flight.
SPAL, meanwhile, are down in 17th with 17 points from as many games, having failed to win their last seven games. Since beating Cosenza 5-0 in October, Gli Spallini have drawn four times and lost thrice between November 12 and December 4, losing to Benevento (2-1), Brescia (2-0) and Modena (3-2).
Another setback at the weekend could see them plunge back into the bottom three, where they will face the risk of a direct relegation to Serie C.
Parma recently put an end to their struggles with a 2-0 defeat of Brescia and will have their confidence soaring ahead of Sunday’s game.
SPAL, meanwhile, are stuck in a rut at the moment, without a win in their last seven league games. Their struggles could continue with a defeat against Parma.
Prediction: Parma 2-1 SPAL
This match will start from 13:00 GMT
This match will take place on 18 December, 2022
Parma have finally broken through their poor run with a crucial win over Brescia that has lifted the team up to 5th in the table. Parma could end up level on points with Bari by the end of this weekend. Manager Fabio Pecchia does have a very poor run against SPAL with only two wins in eight outings. Parma are still missing several players including Gianluigi Buffon.
SPAL manager Daniele De Rossi has been under tremendous pressure over the last few weeks and the lack of impact from the team in the final third continues to keep the team in relegation trouble. SPAL have actually done worse over the last few weeks and they have dropped down to 17th in the table. Daniele De Rossi does not have any injury worries in the squad.
