With 18 points filling in their discrepancy, it comes quite obvious who between Parma and Fiorentina can be considered the top dogs or minnows. Parma still fight for survival as they remain the foremost candidates for relegation while Fiorentina are safely docked in the top half with a positive goal difference to cap that up.


Parma FC

The first half of the season was a huge struggle for I Crociati, who spent majority of their run in the relegation zone. In fact, they have never won a single match in their last six matches for 2014 and only picked up one point from their lone deadlock against fellow strugglers, Cagliari. Roberto Donadoni’s team have severe dilemma in the air, often commit errors, and lack substantial defensive strength. All these largely contribute to their poor performances since the season opened. Nonetheless, they are quite good at creating long shot opportunities and they can use this skill to kick off 2015 with a good result.


ACF Fiorentina

Although not as spectacular as the other title chasers such as Juventus and Roma, Fiorentina had a promising run in the latter part of 2014. They are currently part of the top half, with 24 points to brag about and 21 goals to be proud of. Viola were unbeaten in Serie A for the whole month of December and received three victories in November. However, their Europa League radar seemed out of reach at UEFA as they lost all three points to Dinamo Minsk in their brawl at the Stadio Artemio Franchi 1-2. This year, Vincenzo Montella’s men are confident that they would be able to display better stunts, move more swiftly in the pitch, and earn more points from esteemed victories.


Online betting tip: Parma will succumb to Fiorentina.
