Parma, 5 February 2021 – The Derby dell’Emilia awaits the Crociati this Sunday; let’s take a look at a few stats ahead of the game at the Tardini.

The last four meetings in Serie A between Parma and Bologna have produced 18 goals in total (4.5 per game): only two less than the previous 12 league fixtures involving the two local rivals. Parma have drawn their last three home games in Serie A against Bologna; the Crociati have never been held to four draws at home against the Rossoblù. Parma have only drawn more time at home against Fiorentina (eleven) and Juventus (ten) than they have against Bologna (nine) in the top flight.

Each Parma’s last three goals have been headers, after scoring no headed goals from their previous eleven. No team has used more players this season than Parma: 34 (level with Spezia), followed by Bologna with 31. Nine of Bologna’s last ten goals have been scored by different players (two for Takehiro Tomiyasu).

Bologna are Jasmin Kurtic’s favourite opposition in Serie A; the Parma midfielder have scored four goal against the Rossoblù in the top flight of Italian football. The first of Andreas Cornelius’ six goal as a substitute in Serie A came against Bologna in October 2017, as an Atalanta player (1-0). Gervinho scored his first Serie A brace against Bologna in September 2013 at the Olimpico as a Roma player (5-0). Hernani scored the first of his three Serie A goals in September 2020 at the Dall’Ara against Bologna. Yann Karamoh also got off the mark in Serie A against Bologna, in February 2018 while wearing an Inter shirt (2-1 at San Siro). Simone Iacoponi has scored two goals in 90 Serie A game: the first of these was against Bologna in November 2019, at the Dall’Ara (2-2). On the same theme, Bruno Alves’ first goal in the top flight of Italian football was against the Rossoblù in September 2016, when he was at Cagliari. Both the oldest and youngest defenders to ever play in Serie A are Parma players: Bruno Alves (born in 1981) and Daan Dierckx (2003).
