Parma vs Atalanta predictions for this Serie A encounter on Tuesday.

Atalanta need to keep their focus

Can Parma sign off on a high with three points in their final home game of the season? They come into this clash looking to follow up wins over Napoli and Brescia, but they face a very different challenge as Atalanta's head into this midweek clash with plenty still to play for.

Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini has already stated how huge he thinks a second-place finish would be for la Dea. After all, they are a side with a bottom-half wage budget who was backed to miss out on the top four by many. If they were a place below a Juve side who have dominated Serie A for almost a decade, that would send them into the Champions League in August on a high. Our predictions back them to keep up their push for second with three points in this trip.

Parma shaky at home

While the hosts have bounced back into form with consecutive wins, they’ve not entirely convinced since returning to action. They’ve lost six of 11 matches since returning to action, with those six losses all coming in their last nine Serie A outings.

Meanwhile, their home record is incredibly poor, having claimed 13 of their 23 points against the bottom six. Outside of that they have eight defeats from 12 here, which is a concern against one of Italy’s strongest travelling sides. La Dea have claimed 37 points from 18 away trips, which is the second-highest tally in the division.

Atalanta to edge high-scoring clash

The hosts have looked vulnerable in defence since the restart, failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their 11 games since returning. That’s usually been covered up by the fact that they’ve also scored in each of those 11, but that’s not likely to be enough against an Atalanta side who have outscored everyone in Serie A this term.

Having found the net 45 times in 18 away trips, Atalanta should be able to outscore Parma with the hosts maintaining their streak of both teams scoring in 11 games. With la Dea finding the net 11 times in three meetings between these two since Parma’s return to the top-flight, we are backing la Dea to win and both teams to score, while a 3-1 victory for Atalanta is our correct score prediction.
