Parma beat Lecce odds are of obvious interest this Monday given their renaissance and revival.
This side, who boasted a legendary 1990s vintage in Serie A, have risen link a phoenix from the ashes of their subsequent struggles.
Parma sit in the top half of the Italian top flight above AC Milan on goal difference having played fewer matches.
It is a remarkable transformation from the oblivion of the mid-2010s. Parma’s team may be assembled largely of loans, but they have gelled very well indeed this season.
The same cannot be said of Lecce, however. Their heads are barely above relegation waters just one point and place outside of the bottom three.
Promotion from Serie B brings with it great hope. The reality of the following season is not usually so kind to teams like Lecce.
Only Genoa have a worse defence than the 36 goals conceded by Fabio Liverani’s team in Serie A. That makes an exciting Parma team at home well worth backing at 3/4 with Unibet for the win here.
Why Parma beat Lecce odds appeal
The table doesn’t lie. While it’s surprising to see Parma ahead of Milan, Napoli and Fiorentina, they are above those bigger Italian clubs entirely on merit.
Such has been the form of Sweden starlet Dejan Kulusevski, who has Macedonian heritage, that Juventus have bought his contract midway through the season from Atalanta.
This teenage talent will spend the rest of the campaign with Parma, however.
Premier League fans will recognise the odd name in Parma’s squad too thanks to the likes of former Arsenal winger Gervinho and ex-Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian.
Lecce’s form is wretched. They have won just one of their previous 14 games in league and cup, losing four of the last five coming into this one.
Parma simply should be shorter in the betting with bookmakers to win this.
Roberto D’Aversa has masterminded draws at Inter and Fiorentina, plus wins over Roma at home and Napoli on the road this season.
A repeat of those results here will be more than enough to win. There is plenty in home ranks to run out comfortable victors over a relegation threatened side.
Bet of the Day: 3/4 with Unibet, Parma beat Lecce in Serie A.
