Cremonese hosts Parma in round 23 of Italian Serie B. The match will be played on Tuesday, February 15th at Stadio Giovanni Zini (Cremona)
Cremonese is fighting for promotion to Serie A. The Tigers have already got into the elite division and even spent a decade and a half there. But since 1996, the team has performed in the 2nd division of the country, and with rather contradictory results. In the previous season, Cremonese took only 13th place. And now the club is among the leaders of the Serie B standings. There was a decline after a perfect start, but then the team was on a long streak of victories, which raised it to the top of the standings. A 0-2 victory over Cittadella allowed the Tigers to catch up with Pisa and Lecce. And the leader is only one point ahead.

Parma was an average performer in Serie A some year and a half ago. Moreover, they did not rule out that the club would try to get into European competitions. But everything was ruined by the new owners, who changed the coach at first. Then there was a reverse castling, but it was too late: the club was relegated to Serie B. Now it is interesting that Buffon plays here (and another super veteran, Pandev, joined him in January). The problem is that the efforts of Gigi are not enough. Moreover, the team can be called the main disappointment of Serie B. The Crusaders were expected to return to Serie A, but they are in the lower part of the standings. Well, at least there is no threat of relegation, and they can safely prepare for the new season. But in the last round, Parma managed to hammer Pordenone (4-1). The first goal was scored by a Macedonian newcomer.
Cremonese beat Parma in 2018 when the Crusaders were aiming for Serie A. And the Tigers managed to “greet” them after returning, winning 2-1 away in September. Yes, Parma is a pretty serious opponent. But Cremonese is now at its peak. Moreover, it is motivated by the chances to promote to Serie A. We are waiting for the victory of the hosts.
