Lecce lost three games in a row, but whether Parma will be able to extend this series on January 13 – the answer is in our prediction. Who will be stronger?
Parma 7-4-7 L-D-W-W-L-D
“Parma” before the start of the season was unlikely to bet on European competition, but contrary to all forecasts, the “crusaders” are currently one of the candidates for a ticket to the Europa League. After 18 rounds, Roberto D’Aversa’s team is in eighth place in the table with 25 points, losing to the sixth “Cagliari” with only four points and having a match in reserve. Nevertheless, Parma does not do without mistakes – in the last round its unbeaten run was interrupted, which at that time consisted of three fights. In Bergamo, the “crusaders” played without a number of key players, which ultimately resulted in a rout – Luigi Cepé got five goals in his own net, “Parma” could not answer with any of his own. Parma: Sepe – Darmian, Jacoponi, Bruno Alves, Gallolo – Grassi, Kutsk, Hernani – Kulushevsky, Ingles, Sprokati.
U.S. Lecce 3-6-9 L-L-L-D-W-D
“Lecce” famously returned to Serie A from the lowest divisions of Italy and immediately managed to declare itself in the elite. This season, the team of Fabio Liverani has already made a number of sensations – took away points from Juventus (1: 1) at home, nearly beat Milan away (2: 2), beat Fiorentina (1: 0) away. However, while the yellow-red ones are only in 17th place in the table, they are only one point away from the relegation zone. The form of the team in recent meetings leaves much to be desired – the 0-1 defeat from Udinese was already the third in a row and put Liverani in a very difficult position – all the table neighbors have already managed to change their coaches this season, some even several times. Lecce: Gabriel – Donati, Rossettini, Luchioni, Dell’Orco – Petriccione, Tahtsidis, Tabanelli – Mancozu – Babacar, Falco.

Parma F.C. vs U.S. Lecce Predictions
Parma continues the race for European competition, but in the last match the Crusaders received a serious crack, which probably affected the mood of the team. Despite the fact that the hosts are considered the clear favorites of the match, they are unlikely to take risks and go on the attack with great strength from the first minutes, but rather try to play carefully and catch the opponent by mistake. “Lecce”, in turn, will also not open without special need, glasses now “yellow-red” are needed like air, it is unlikely that Liverani will take a gamble, so it’s hardly worth counting on an extravaganza.
