Parma form and stats

With 2 Serie A wins, 5 draws and 8 defeats from their home games, Parma, who have the fewest scored goals (28) in Serie A, are certainly not brimming with confidence.

Parma manager R. D'Aversa and his team return home after a 2-2 draw away versus Benevento (placed 15th) in the Serie A. Preceding that match was a defeat to Genoa (1-2).

The goals haven't exactly been flowing for Parma here at Stadio Ennio Tardini in the league, with less than one goal per game on average (9 from 15 games). Defensively it’s touch-and-go for the home team as 24 goals have been conceded.

Milan form and stats

Rock solid. That's the only way to describe the travels of Milan so far, with 12-1-1 (wins-draws-losses) so far. Those are Serie A statistics. It’s been three wins in a row for Milan on their travels, an amazing performance which inspire hopes of making this one the fourth consecutive victory.

Milan delivered a 1-1 draw playing at home against Sampdoria (placed 10th) in their previous match; a Serie A game. Ahead of that match was the victory versus Fiorentina at their stadium, the result 3-2.

The draw against Sampdoria came from a losing position. The Milan manager S. Pioli brought on Jens Petter Hauge as a substitute and the player scored to make the scores level.

The Milan manager S. Pioli has got the team scoring on the road, with 28 away goals in 14 league matches. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (13 so far).

Head 2 Head

These teams' last encounter with each other was the Milan - Parma 2-2 earlier this season. Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): Parma won two games, two matches ended with a draw and Milan has six wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: eight / two
