Match Preview

  • Three losses from Verona’s last four Serie A (SA) matches (W1) – including two in a row – has derailed their European qualification hopes. A promising sign exists in the fact Verona have never lost three consecutive SA games under coach Ivan Jurić, although conceding 34.78% of their campaign ‘goals against’ across the last four games is a worry. That’s especially so as conceding first has been a calamity for Verona, as they’ve lost seven of eight SA games when conceding the opener (W1).
  • Verona favour playing at home rather than away (17 points vs 13) and have won their last two SA home games. Goals are a strong feature as six of Verona’s last seven SA home matches produced goals at both ends, with five witnessing over 2.5 goals.
  • Relegation-threatened Parma are looking to complete a SA season double over Verona for the first time since 1996/97, but are winless in an unfortunate club-record 12 SA games (D4, L8). Parma are prone to late goals themselves having conceded a substantial ten of their 41 SA ‘goals against’ after the 80th minute. Understandably then, Parma have struggled when scoring first (W2, D3, L1) – albeit they’ve also picked up just a point when conceding first too (D1, L11).
  • One of the division’s poorest travellers (W1, D3, L6), Parma have conceded 2.30 goals per away game this campaign. Unsurprisingly then, Parma were trailing at HT in five of their six SA away losses.
  • Players to watch: Antonín Barák gave Verona a decisive lead in both his SA home scoring games, whilst Gervinho has been Parma’s only scorer in his two SA away scoring games, earning them four points in the process.
  • Hot stat: Parma have scored just once across their last seven SA games and have failed to score in their last three – only twice in SA have they recorded four straight games without scoring.
