Parma, 8 February 2019 – The Nerazzurri will be the Crociati’s next opponents in Serie A, with Parma vs. Inter set to be played tomorrow evening at the Tardini.
PREVIOUS MEETINGS AT THE ENNIO
There have been a total of 30 previous meetings between the two teams in Parma, with the Gialloblu picking up 16 wins (the most recent being a 2-0 win during the 2014-15 campaign) to Inter’s seven (2-0 during the 2013-14 season). There have also been seven draws (1-1 in the 2009-10)
CLASH OF THE COACHES
This will be just the second-ever clash between Roberto D’Aversa and Luciano Spalletti, with Parma previously winning this season’s earlier encounter 1-0.
LACK OF HOME SUCCESS
Parma haven’t won at home since 25 November, when they beat Sassuolo 2-1. In their last four outings at the Tardini, they’ve drawn two and lost two.
The Nerazzurri haven’t won in their last three matches (one draw and two defeats), with their last victory dating back to 29 December, when they beat Empoli 1-0. This is their longest winless streak in Serie A this season, while they’ve also gone 288 minutes without scoring in the league after Keita’s 72nd- minute strike at the Castellani. This tally includes the remaining 18 minutes from the game in Tuscany, as well as games against Sassuolo (0-0 at home), Torino (1-0 away) and Bologna (1-0 at San Siro).
With his brace in the 3-3 draw away at Juventus, Gervinho has moved up to eight goals in the 2018/19 Serie A season and he’s now just one away from his record tally in Italy. That stems from the 2013/14 season when he scored nine with Roma. Back then, he scored his eighth goal on 12 April, so the Ivorian is well on his way.
Massimiliano Irrati from Pistoia will be the referee for Parma vs. Inter. He has taken charge of 96 matches in Serie A with 46 home wins, 26 draws and 24 away wins. Under him, Parma have won one, drawn one and lost two. Inter have won six and lost ten with him as the referee.
