Parma, 12 August 2022 – Parma’s 2022/23 Serie BKT campaign started off with an entertaining opening day draw at home to Bari. They created many chances in the game, especially in the first half, but found an inspired Caprile in front of them who pulled off some incredible saves. Man broke the deadlock with a splendid bit of play after only three minutes but Bari fought back with goals from Folorunsho and a re-taken Antenucci penalty, after his first attempt was saved by Chichizola. But for most of the first half, it was all Parma; Mihaila had chances on 14 and 20 minutes, Bernabe’s shot was well saved by Caprile, and on 43 minutes Vazquez was denied by the woodwork. After dominating possession and creating a number of chances, the equaliser finally came on the stroke of half-time with Mahaila sending home a free-kick from the edge of the box. After the break, Juric came closest to getting the winner but his turn and shot was well blocked by the Bari keeper.
