The newcomer Parma hosts Udinese
The newcomer Parma hosts Udinese in a match from the first round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s have a look. After some spell in the lower divisions of Italian football, Parma finally returned to the Serie A. They are a pretty important club in Italy, so their absence was not good for the Calcio. But the most logical thing happened and the team from Ennio Tardini returned to where it belongs – the elite division. Led by the manager Roberto D’Aversa, Parma would try to keep their place in the Serie A this season. Surely the first season won’t be easy for them, because they’d need some time to adapt to the new league. The difference between Serie A and Serie B is pretty big, so it won’t be easy for them to settle. What Parma did on the transfer market this summer? The club acquired the services of Roberto Inglese, Jacopo Dezi and Alberto Grassi from Napoli, while Fabio Ceravolo was bought from Benevento. Jonathan Biabiany was signed from Inter, while Leo Stulac was acquired from Venezia. Last season Udinese finished 14th in the Serie A and the campaign was not good for them. They had some problematic periods during the season when their results were not very good. The goal of the new season is to stabilize the performance and do better. The club from Udine made a strong move during the summer marker, paying 20 million euro to Juventus for the midfielder Rolando Mandragora. He shall make the team’s midfielder better. The club also bought Ignacio Pussetto from Huracan and Felipe Vizeu from Flamengo. This is our look at the Serie A clash between Parma and Udinese from the first round of the league. It’d be interesting to see how Parma will do in their first game since their return to the Calcio.
