Parma vs Inter Milan Prediction & Match Preview



4 March 2021 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET Serie A Ennio Tardini

Thursday’s football game between Parma and Inter will bring down the curtain on day 25 of the current Serie A campaign. 

Parma did well to hold both Udinese and Spezia in the previous two league fixtures, but keep in mind that they have not recorded a win in the Serie A since November 30, 2020. 

The Gli Emiliani are five points behind the “safe zone”, meaning that they are desperate to grab something from the midweek clash.

Since Gervinho remains in the recovery room alongside Caviglia, Cornelius, Pelle, and Zirkzee, home win should not be considered. 

The Nerazzurri, on the other hand, are eyeing their sixth consecutive win in the national championship, and seeing that they have been scoring goals for fun of late, we are tempted to put our money on the league leaders. 

Sensi should be the only absentee in the away team in Thursday’s clash.

Team News:

Parma coach Roberto D'Aversa, who has rotated relentlessly in search of an elusive first win since re-joining the club, faces a serious striker shortage on Thursday. First-choice target man Andreas Cornelius picked up a thigh problem late on in the draw with Spezia and is set to miss out, while fellow forwards Roberto Inglese, Gervinho and Joshua Zirkzee are doubtful too.

On the plus side, former Azzurri striker Graziano Pelle could return from his muscular injury, but would most likely only be ready for a spot on the bench, while Yann Karamoh is expected to overcome a niggle to start. Either Juraj Kucka or Juan Brunetta could therefore occupy a 'false nine' role, with support from Valentin Mihalia and Karamoh out wide.

In defence, on-loan full-back Andrea Conti (thigh) is struggling to recover in time, so Simone Iacoponi stands ready to deputise on the right.

Inter, meanwhile, have a clean bill of health, as Stefano Sensi is now likely to be available after missing two games with muscle fatigue and can return to the bench, while wing-back sensation Achraf Hakimi will come straight back into the XI following suspension.

Though their next game is not until Monday evening, against Atalanta, Antonio Conte may be tempted into some rare changes, given the relative strength of the opposition. In midfield, Arturo Vidal or Roberto Gagliardini could cover Marcelo Brozovic, with Christian Eriksen switching to a deeper role, while Alexis Sanchez scored as a substitute at the weekend and is ready to start up front if required.

Parma possible starting lineup:
Sepe; Iacoponi, Osorio, Gagliolo, Pezzella; Hernani, Brugman, Kurtic; Karamoh, Kucka, Mihaila

Inter Milan possible starting lineup:
Handanovic; Skriniar, de Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Eriksen, Gagliardini, Perisic; Martinez, Lukaku
