Milan vs. Parma 7/15/20 Serie A Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction
2020-07-15 13:30:00 EDT
Milan is hosting Parma at San Siro in round 33 in Italian Serie A.
Milan has been absolutely amazing since the restart, and they are one of the few teams that are still unbeaten since the season started again. Milan has scored at least 2 goals in each of their last 6 games, 17 in total, but more importantly, Milan has kept 2 clean sheets in their last 6 goals and has conceded 7 goals in total. With this fantastic streak, Milan has gotten on the verge of the Europa League, to 7th place with 50 points, just 2 points away from the Europa League. Milan’s offense has improved greatly, and they have now scored 45 goals, while their defense is getting better, and Milan has conceded 41 goals. Rebic is Milan’s top goal scorer and the only player in double digits with 10 goals, while Hernandez added 6 goals, and Ibrahimovic added 5 goals and 3 assists. Musacchio, Duarte, and Castillejo are all injured, while Saelemaekers is suspended because of the red card. In their latest Serie A game against Napoli on the road, Milan was decent with 50% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and 88% of the correct passes. This match could have gone either way, but it ended in a 2-2 draw. Milan still has a few tough games left to play in Serie A, but they are filled with confidence and if they can keep winning points, I believe Milan will get to the Europa League next season.
Parma has restarted the season well, with 1 draw and 1 win, but in their last 5 games, Parma has 5 losses and 1 draw from their last game against Bologna. Parma is in 12th place in the standings with 40 points, 44 scored goals, and 44 conceded goals, I would say safe for next season, but I expect Parma to drop a few more spots. Parma has scored and conceded a goal in each of their last 7 games since the restart, 12 scored in total, while they conceded 13 goals. In their latest Serie A game against Bologna at home, Parma was solid with 50% of ball possession, 6 corner kicks, 83% of the correct passes, and 5 shots on goal. This match ended in a 2-2 draw. Cornelius has scored 11 goals for Parma, while Kulusevski added 7 goals and 7 assists. Inglese is the only injured player for Parma, while Diakhate is suspended because of the red card. The only goal Parma had this season was to secure their spot for next season, but as they have gotten close to the top, Parma’s appetites grew, but Parma simply doesn’t have enough depth at the moment for a better result, and I think they are aware of that in the club.
Milan is in the better form and they are a more experienced team, which is something Milan will know how to use to their advantage. I will side with Milan here as they will look to continue their run without a loss.
