Parma, 5 December 2020 – Up next for the Crociati is a home fixture against recently-promoted Benevento. Let’s take a look at a few stats ahead of tomorrow’s game at the Tardini.

This will be the first-ever meeting between the two clubs in the top flight. In fact, the Parma and Benevento have never crossed paths in either Serie B or the Coppa Italia. Parma are the 21st side Benevento will have faced in Serie A.

Benevento have won three of their first nine games in Serie A this season, as many as they won in their first 29 games in 2017/18. The Stregoni have already won two games away from home in the league this season, one more than in 2017/18. After a win and a draw, Benevento could go three Serie A games unbeaten for the first time in their history. The Campania-based side have also scored more goals (four) from corners than any other team in Serie A this season.

Parma forward Gervinho has scored the most goals (four) in away games without getting on the scoresheet at home in Serie A this season. Roberto Inglese’s final appearance in Serie A in a Chievo Verona shirt was against Benevento in May 2018, and he also scored in that game. Roberto Inglese and Gervinho have both played the same amount of games in Serie A (140) and the Ivorian has scored one more than the former Chievo man (39 to 38). Juraj Kucka’s next start would be his 50th in a Parma shirt. Kuco is the only current Parma player to have played in every league game so far this season.
