Competition: Serie A
Market: Ciro Immobile to score anytime
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Smelling a real chance on the road this weekend, Lazio will make the trip to the Stadio Ennio Tardini when they face off against Parma on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, only continuing on what has been a hugely worrying form after returning from Italy’s festive break last week, it is no secret to many in Serie A that Parma are seen as a leading relegation scrapper this season. Putting in a pair of sluggish displays since returning to action, the Crusaders have been hit with back-to-back 3-0 drummings at the hands of Atalanta and Torino. In the midst of an extended blip and losing each of their last four top-flight contests on the spin, Roberto D’Aversa’s strugglers have only shown a host of issues at both ends of the pitch. Without a win to their name since the end of November and recording just a single goal in over 400 minutes of action, Parma have also conceded 12 goals on their four-match winless run.
As for the visitors, managing to pick up their first win of 2021 with an eye-catching 2-1 victory against Fiorentina on home soil, there is no doubt that Lazio will be desperate to build off of that result this weekend. With another European finish at the top of their agenda after reaching the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League, it is well worth keeping an eye out for a red-hot Ciro Immobile on Sunday. Only continuing to take Europe by storm and enjoying yet another free-scoring run this season, the Italian marksman managed to extend his tally with a strike against Fiorentina last week. In fact, along with already notching 16 strikes, it is worth noting that the one-time Borussia Dortmund striker has found the net in his last five appearances on the bounce. Given Parma’s continued issues at the back, Immobile should be confident of cashing in once again this weekend.
