Parma expected not to lose away at Spal

<div><h2>Spal vs Parma</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow"><strong>Saturday, October 5th, at Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara)</strong></a></p><p>Down in 19th place, it is fair to say that Spal are struggling this season. They enter this match on the back of 3 defeats in a row in which they conceded 8 goals winning just 1 match so far, 2-1 home against Lazio. On the other side, Parma enter this match on the back of 2 consecutive wins sitting 9th in the standings with 9 points in 6 matches. They were very lucky to beat Torino at home in the last round as Torino’s Brazilian defender Bremer got red carded in the 29th minute. Spal won both home and away matches last season and they will try to bounce back after a tough start to their Serie A season. Serie A survival will be the priority for visitors, who were a 3rd-tier club 3 years ago. They’ve made excellent progress in and their strong start to their 2019/20 campaign makes them believe they can have a better season.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Parma's manager, Roberto D'Aversa, guided them to back-to-back promotions in 2016-17 and 2017-18. They loaned many players in the summer transfer window with the most important of them being centre-forward, Roberto Inglese from Napoli. Their main player remains the Ivory Coast International, Gervinho, a talented striker who helped Parma remain in Serie A. He doesn’t score many goals but he’s offering many assists for his attacking teammates. Against Torino he missed a penalty but fortunately for him, Parma won 3-2 adding 3 more points to their season tally. Spal might be without Federico Di Francesco who got injured against Lecce 2 rounds ago. Mohamed Fares and Marco D’Alessandro are doubtful for Spal. Andrea Petagna is the player to watch for Spal, a skillful striker who scored 2 goals already this season.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>The bookies are expecting a close match with Spal being favourites just because they are playing on their turf. Spal are priced at 2.25 with Unibet while Parma are the underdogs being priced at 3.2 with the same bookie. This is a classic match between 2 teams with the same objective (avoid the relegation). Later in the season we might see them being neighbors in the standings separated by 1-2 points and they might also fight for the last salvation spot. That’s why this match is very important for both sides. We expect a thrilling match with both teams contributing on the scoreboard.</p><p><a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Serie A Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score at 1.75 with Unibet</strong></em></a></p></div>
