Parma - Inter Betting Preview: Backing Palacio to continue his hot streak in an exciting encounter

After Juventus slipped up on Sunday, the Nerazzurri will be looking to capitalise when they travel to the Stadio Ennio Tardini and Al Hain-Cole is banking on goals at both ends

After AC Milan's shock 1-0 win over Juventus on Sunday, city rivals Inter will be looking to take full advantage by moving themselves to within a point of the current league leaders with a win against Parma on Monday evening.

Neither side go into this match in particularly sparkling form, as both are without a win in their last three matches, but each have their own reasons to be confident of victory.

Parma are unbeaten in 11 Serie A games at the Stadio Ennio Tardini, where they comfortably overcame Inter 3-1 in May.

You can back them at generous 99/50 (2.98) odds with Marathon Bet to come out on top again this evening.

The Nerazzurri's current three-match win-less streak follows a run of eight consecutive victories that culminated in them ending Juventus' 49-game unbeaten run, and you can get odds of 79/50 (2.58) on them rediscovering that golden touch here.

Three of the hosts' last five home matches have ended in a draw, so savvy punters might want to consider the tempting 23/10 (3.30) odds on offer for a stalemate taking place in this one.

Massimo Moratti took a chance when he appointed 36-year-old Andrea Stramaccioni to the San Siro hot seat, but the former youth team coach has completely turned the Milanese club's fortunes around and forged them into an exciting attacking outfit.

Stramaccioni's men have banged in 16 goals in seven league games away from home this season, so should be confident of breaching a defence that has kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 matches.

Considering the Gialloblu have only failed to score at home once this season, a bet on both teams to score seems very safe in this match, and is available at odds of 17/25 (1.68).

This would have paid out in four of Parma's last five at home, as well as four of Inter's last five on the road.

Suspension to Antonio Cassano puts even more onus on Argentine duo Diego Milito and Rodrigo Palacio to grab the goals for the visitors this evening, and luckily for them the latter striker is bang in form at the moment.

Palacio has hit the back of the net eight times in the last nine games, so odds of 21/5 (5.20) are surely too good to miss on him opening the scoring tonight.
