As many as five clubs are in danger of dropping out of Italy's top-flight but our tipster is backing Monday's hosts to move away from the pack

The battle to stay in Serie A is set to go down to the wire with just three points separating five clubs all vying to avoid the final relegation spot.

Two of those teams, Bologna and Parma, face off on Monday evening with the winner knowing that three points will all-but lift them to safety.

Bologna are just 4/5 (1.80) with 888Sport to claim the victory which would take them five points clear of 18th-placed Empoli with two games to play, whilst 5/1 (6.0) Parma will go six points ahead should they take the spoils.

The hosts have a tough final two games, with a trip to Lazio preceding a visit from Napoli, and so will certainly be targeting this game as perhaps their last chance to get three points this season.

Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men have, though, hit form at the right time with six wins from their last nine games to propel them from 18th position up to 15th – with only four sides taking more points in that span.

Five of their six wins have come in front of their own fans and should be backed to make it six wins in a row at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, a ground where they have only lost Juventus since January.

Parma, meanwhile, have found themselves in the relegation conversation despite being 12 points clear of 18th on March 9, when they were also 12 points away from Lazio in 6th.

However, three losses and five consecutive draws followed for the northern outfit – making it just one win in 15 matches dating back to mid-January.

As well, Parma have managed just three clean sheets away from home all season and have conceded more than once on nine separate occasions.

The 4/5 (1.80) on Bologna to take all three, points then, could pay dividends for backers in tonight’s important Serie A clash.
