Parma, 21 September 2021 – On the few occasions where they’ve made the trip to the Stadio Libero Liberati in Terni, where they’ll take to the pitch at 18:00 CEST on Wednesday 22 September, Parma Calcio haven’t enjoyed much success.

Indeed, looking back through the Crociati History records, the Ducali have played three Serie B matches there, losing the first one 3-0 in 1974 and drawing the other two 1-1.

In both of these stalemates, which took place in December, Parma were pegged back after taking the lead.

On 9 December 1979, Antonio Baldoni scored the Crociati’s goal before Ternana equalised through Legnani late on.

On Friday 8 December 2017, meanwhile, Antonio Di Gaudio got on the scoresheet for the Crociati. This was the last time Parma faced the Rossoverdi away from home, and it’s the fixture we’re reliving in our column today.

Di Gaudio broke the deadlock in the 21st minute with a great bit of individual play.

Totò helped to win the ball back on the left wing, darted at pace towards the opposition box and, once inside it, curled a wonderful effort into the far corner to make it 1-0.

The hosts drew level with 74 minutes on the clock, with Luca Tremolada firing past Pierluigi Frattali with a first-time shot from Filippo Tiscione’s pull-back (1-1).

In the end, it was a fair result: the Crociati were the better side in the first half, but Ternana stepped things up after the break.

However, there were regrets for Parma, who came close to grabbing a second more than once.

The Crociati, who would go on to be promoted to Serie A at the end of the season, lost an opportunity to extend their lead at the top.

Ternana, who were relegated that campaign, drew their seventh consecutive match.
