Match status: 2019-20 Coppa Italia - 1/8-finals
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma)
Parma have exceeded pre-season expectations of finishing mid-table by putting up a strong challenge for an European league place finish. Head coach Roberto D'Aversa has been receiving lots of plaudits from the media for his side's masterclass and quite rightly so.

When these two sides faced earlier in December in the Serie A, the Crusaders secured bragging rights as well as maximum points against Roma, much to the delight of the club's supporters.

As La Lupa come around town once again on Thursday night, seventh-placed Parma will be looking to eliminate the visitors from the league cup as well as condemn them to another humiliating Parma defeat this season.

Parma vs AS Roma Team News

Despite being odds-on favorites to secure victory in the previous round of the competition, Parma could only muster a slender 2-1 home win over lowly Frosinone. The home supporters were in fine voice throughout the game but headed home knowing they should have won the game more comfortably.

With the game tied at 1-1 for large parts of the game, tensions began rising as the clock wound down. Injury time arrived as well as the frantic football that comes along with it. A penalty handed to Parma in the closing stages was well tucked in by Hernani, sending the whole stadium into raptures.

Parma are on an impressive run of form at the moment, having admitted defeat just once in their previous four Serie A games. Last time out in the league, they ran riot against Atalanta, slotting five unanswered goals against La Dea.

AS Roma, on the other hand, head into this game following back-to-back home defeats, the last of which was a humbling loss at the hands of league leaders Juventus. The Old Lady posted a 2-1 scorecard to go top at the business end of the standings.

However, Paulo Fonseca's side have been faring much better on the road this season. They have maintained an unbeaten status in their previous four outings, tasting nothing but success in three of these games.

For this fixture, head-to-head encounter is very likely to come into play and for that, the visitors clearly have the upper hand. Parma have secured victory just once from their last four meetings with this foe at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.

Also, with AS Roma hell-bent on returning to winning ways sooner rather than later, the home side are likely to be victims of a Roma backlash in this fixture. Count on the guests to put nothing but their best forward to come out on top in this one.

Parma vs AS Roma Predictions

Given head-to-head dominance as well as sheer talent within their ranks, Roma are undoubtedly slight favorites heading into this game. They should have enough about themselves to see off the challenge of Parma to secure advancement to the next round of the competition.

However, it's not expected to be a stroll in the park for the Giallorossi, given the away handicap they will be dealing with. Parma have been deadly on this ground and will be looking to cause a major upset against this Roma side.

Expect an entertaining and enthralling game between these very good footballing sides, with Roma edging the hosts slightly to advance in the Coppa Italia.
