Pordenone welcome Parma to the Stadio Guido Teghil for a matchday three fixture in Serie B on Sunday.
The hosts come into the game on the back of a 5-0 hounding away to SPAL before the international break. Five different men got on the scoresheet for the home side to inspire a resounding victory.
Parma picked up a narrow 1-0 victory over Benevento, with Valentin Mihaila scoring the match-winner in the sixth minute of injury time.
That victory helped I Crociati climb up to sixth place in the table, with four points picked up from two matches so far. Pordenone are bottom of the standings and are one of five sides yet to pick up a point this term.

Pordenone vs Parma Prediction
Pordenone's poor start to the campaign has dragged them into an early relegation scrap and they need a victory to turn their season around. Parma are among the favorites to gain immediate promotion back to the top-flight and we are backing the visitors to get all three points here.
The visitors tend to be expansive in their play but this might not be exploited by a Pordenone attack that has struggled in front of goal. We are predicting a comfortable victory for Parma.
Prediction: Pordenone 0-2 Parma
