Competition: Serie A
Market: Fiorentina win
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to continue their push for European football, Fiorentina will welcome Parma to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Boxing Day afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Fiorentina struggled with their constancy at the start of the new Serie A campaign, the Purples have done an impressive job of climbing up the table. In their opening 17 games this season, they have won six, drawn seven and lost four, scoring 25 and conceding 17 in return. Currently, only the top two of Napoli and Juventus hold a better defensive record. With a points tally of 25, a win on Boxing Day could see them climb into the Champions League positions. As for their recent form, Fiorentina have lost just one of their last nine matches across all competitions.
As for the visitors, while Parma did enjoy a stable start following their return to Serie A, they have recently hit a rough patch that has seen them fall down the table. In their 17 games this season, they have won six, drawn four and lost seven, scoring 16 and conceding 21 in return. Entering Christmas, they hold the third worst defensive record in Italy’s top-flight. As for their recent run of form, Parma have now failed to win any of their last four Serie A matches and have also lost their last two matches away from the Stadio Ennio Tardini.
