Parma vs Napoli Match Preview
Napoli’s lack of goals against domestic opponents over the last few weeks could leave them vulnerable to an upset at Parma, even though their hosts are also struggling at present.
The stats above reveal how Carlo Ancelotti’s side have been either misfiring in front of goal or coming up against opposition keepers in terrific form.
The drought even extended to last weekend’s home match against Torino, for which Napoli were hot favourites and dominated the contest but could not find a way past an inspired Salvatore Sirigu.
They did find it easier in the first leg of their Europa League tie against FC Zurich, winning 3-1 in Switzerland, with the return match played on Thursday (result not known at the time of writing).
Parma are making a good job of their first campaign back in the top flight for four years, having been declared bankrupt in 2015 and re-formed as a club after being relegated to Serie D as a consequence.
Three consecutive promotions followed and the club nicknamed the Crusaders are safely in mid-table of Serie A, despite having won only one of their last eight home matches.
However, they recently held Juventus to an excellent 3-3 draw in Turin and are backed to deny Napoli victory, which is a distinct possibility if the Partenopei continue to fire blanks.
