Parma, 29 April 2022 – Alessandria will be Parma’s next opponents, with kick-off scheduled for 14:00 CEST on Saturday at the Tardini. Let’s take a closer look at all the pre-match stats:

● Alessandria come into this game on the back of two wins and a draw in their last three Serie B fixtures. They are yet to go four unbeaten in the league this campaign.

● Alessandria won their last fixture on the road, beating Cittadella 2-1. This season, the team from Piedmont haven’t gone two successive away matches without defeat, with their overall record on the road reading as follows: three wins, three draws and 13 defeats.

● Parma have lost their last three Serie B matches (vs. Brescia, Ascoli and Perugia). The Crociati haven’t suffered more consecutive defeats in Italy’s second division since they lost six in a row in the period between April and May 1985.

● Three of Parma’s last four goals in Serie B have come from outside the box (including Franco Vázquez’s strike against Perugia in the team’s last match). Just three of their previous 25 goals were scored in this manner.

● Parma (three, the same as Frosinone, Reggina and SPAL) and Alessandria (two) are among the sides that have scored the fewest number of goals in the opening 15 minutes of matches in the 2021/22 Serie B campaign.

● Franco Vázquez, who found the net in Parma’s victory over Alessandria in the reverse fixture (2-0 on 19 December), has scored twelve goals in the league this season, nine of which came against teams currently in the bottom half of the Serie B table.

● Adrián Bernabé is one of two players born after 2001 (along with Lorenzo Colombo) to have scored at least five goals this Serie B season. Four of the five goals that have been netted by the Parma player came in April; nobody did better than him in this period.

● Ten of the twelve goals Simone Corazza has scored this league season have come away from home, including the brace that secured Alessandria’s 2-1 victory over Cittadella in their last encounter on the road. The 31-year-old is the only player who has reached double figures in terms of away goals in Serie B this campaign.
