Parma, 27 January 2022 – Crotone will be Parma’s next opponents in the league, with the game scheduled to take place on Sunday at the Tardini. Take a look at all the pre-match stats in our Match Pack:

  • Parma and Crotone are set to meet in Serie B for the first time: up to now, the two teams have only ever played each other in Serie A. The Calabrians won both fixtures in the Italian top flight last season (2-1 at the Scida and 4-3 at the Tardini).
  • Parma have won just one of their last five meetings with Calabrian sides in Serie B (D1, L3) after previously going unbeaten for ten matches against teams from this region in Italy’s second division (W4, D6).
  • Crotone didn’t suffer defeat in their last two Serie B outings in Emilia-Romagna (W1, D1): the Pitagorici have never gone three successive games without losing against an Emilian side in the Italian second tier.
  • Parma fell to a 1-0 defeat to Frosinone in their last league match. The Crociati haven’t suffered two successive defeats without scoring in Serie B since September 2017 (vs. Brescia and Perugia back then).
  • Only against Ascoli (16) and Brescia (14) has Pasquale Schiattarella played more Serie B matches than against Crotone (twelve). The 34-year-old also found the net against the Rossoblù in November 2009. This was his third goal in Italy’s second division and came when he was on Ancona-Matelica’s books.
  • Having scored a penalty in Crotone’s last league match against Coma, Mirko Marić is the Pitagorici player who has been involved in the most goals this Serie B campaign: seven (five goals and two assists).
