Lazio vs Parma Prediction & Match Preview
Lazio vs Parma
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 17th March 2019
Kick-off at 14.00 UK/ 15.00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
These teams come into this tie with different attitudes. Lazio has a game in hand, and a win will take them into the playoff mix, above Torino. Since the beginning of the season, Lazio had fixed European qualification as their prime objective, and now they stand a good chance to make it. With the home advantage going on for them, the fans would amply expect them to deliver.
Parma might be a bit relaxed, considering their comfortable mid-table status. They may be far from the European spots, but so are they from the relegation fight too. All they need to do have a satisfactory ending to their season is to cruise along.

Lazio vs Parma Prediction
Lazio has dominated this opponent for a very long time. Parma lost their last 5 h2h games and the last six in succession at this venue. Moreover, 13 of the last 15 h2h wins went to Lazio. The team also scored two or more goals in the last five encounters, and in the last four at this stadium.
Also, Lazio considers this match as a golden opportunity to take hold of the European qualification on offer. The team has a game in hand, and still, they are just two points away from Torino, who currently is in possession of the last Europa League position.
And finally, Lazio was unbeaten in 14 of their last 18 home ties, whereas Parma was winless in 10 of their last 15 games on the road.
With the additional home advantage, Lazio will definitely get positives out of this tie, against the relaxed set of visitors, who are already quite sure of their stay in the league next season. With their scoring streak against Parma, the hosts will not find it hard to put at least two past the opposing defense.
