Serie A: Parma knows how to halt top sides

Parma has been great to put top Italian sides in trouble. Inter and Fiorentina had to suffer to collect one point.

It’s going to be a tough match for Roma at the Stadio Tardini. Although Parma disappointed its fans at home a few times this season, D’Aversa knows how to face offensive teams hitting them with fast counterattacks.

In their home debut, Parma lost at home against Juventus and on September 15 they replicated their bad performance giving the three points to Cagliari as well.

But in the last seven games, something has changed. Only two defeats for the Gialloblù. The Stadio Tardini has been plundered by many opponents, the last being Hellas Verona that on October 29th won 0-1.

But Parma has been great against top sides. Inter and Fiorentina collected only one point against D’Aversa‘s group and the fans are hoping for another great performance of their heroes on Sunday.

But Roma has its cards to play. Paulo Fonseca‘s side usually approaches games with the right attitude and tactical system. They may take advantage of a few evident Parma’s weaknesses.

The Gialloblù have conceded the leads to their opponents 7 out of 11 times, 5 out of 11 during the first half. 8 home goals suffered by the Ducali and 10 scored at home in the first 11 Serie A games.

Roma has already shown positive performances away from the eternal city. Fonseca and his group have the opportunity to continue their streak of positive games.
