Parma are undoubtedly the favourites to pick up three points especially at the home. Even though Bari have begun the campaign in tremendous fashion with wins over Calcio Padova and Verona in the Coppa Italia, the visitors are in a buoyant mood. However, the strength of Parma might be a little too much especially in the opening game. If the game was at Bari, it would have been a different outcome.
Total goals under 2.5
The early rounds of the Coppa Italia have seen Bari score seven goals in just two matches. A huge chunk of this good form goes down to Cheddira, who has managed five of those goals. This gives Parma an easy target to mark in the opening game. At the same time, Parma are not overflowing with goals.
Both teams to score – yes
The match is likely to witness a decent number of goals with Bari benefiting from the form of players like Cheddira to score 7 goals in just two matches. Meanwhile, Parma are a very strong outfit at home. Just last season, the hosts witnessed a total of 45 goals in the 19 home games.
