Antonio Conte’s ?Inter will welcome eighth placed Parma on Saturday, with the Milan side looking to keep the pressure on title rivals Juventus.
Conte’s men have only lost once in the league so far this season and relinquished top spot to Juventus in the process, who proved worthy winners through goals from Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain in a 2-1 win.

Parma have struggled away from home this season, having won only one of their away league games, which was against Udinese at the start of September.
Meanwhile, Inter are flying high with a strong showing in the league so far and will be desperate to keep the pressure on Juventus at the summit of Serie A. It looks unlikely that Parma – who’s team does contain the likes of Gervinho and Inter-linked Matteo Darmian – will pull off any sort of upset.
Prediction: Inter 3-0 Parma
