Parma v Livorno Betting Preview 18/05/14

Parma have real chances to catch the 6th place in Serie A that will take them to Europa League next season (because both finalists of the Italian Cup finished in top 5). Last round Parma played against direct competitors Torino and although the game finished in a draw their efforts were really impressive (finished 1-1).

Parma were the ones imposing the rythm and having the best of chances and at one point they even missed a penalty that could have assured a European presence. But there is still one more round to go and with Torino having a difficult game away at Fiorentina, Parma will surely concentrate on destroying the opponent and getting the 3 points without much emotions.

Most likely forward Amauri will be in the lineup after starting only on the bench last round due to an injury.

Central defender Lucarelli got a red card and will sit out.

Livorno managed to score 3 times last week but opponents Udinese had no motivation other than giving their fans a game to remember. In the end Udinese easily won 5-3 and also missed a penalty and a few other clear chances so the difference could have been huge.

Livorno have been leaking goals from all positions this entire season but nowadays they are simply a joke in defense. Parma’s youngsters could score against them, so forwards like Cassano, Amauri and Biabiany will simply destroy Livorno.

Guests will miss winger Benassi, defender Castellini and forward Borja, all of them suspended.

Having motivated and talented players involved in the attacking phase is an assurance Parma will easily get the 3 points. Parma -1.75 at 1.95 Bet365 is one of the most valuable bets in Serie A this round.
