Parma, 22 September 2022 – AC Milan will be the Crociate’s next opponent in a match scheduled for Saturday 24 September at 14.30 CEST at the Tardini stadium. In our next MatchPack we take a look at some stats for both teams ahead of Saturday’s match.

HEAD-TO-HEADS
Parma will be the second side from Emilia Romagna to face AC Milan in this season’s Serie A, after Sassuolo: with the Rossonere recording four wins, three draws and one loss against the Neroverdi. AC Milan have one at least one game against each of the 18 sides they have faced in Serie A so far. So far, AC Milan have drawn all three of their Serie A away matches on Emilian turf (all against Sassuolo) and so this weekend, Emilia Romagna could become the ninth different region in which the Rossonere have at least one top-flight win (after Campania, Friuli, Lazio, Liguria, Lombardy, Apulia, Tuscany and Veneto) – San Marino is excluded from the count.

FORM
Parma won their first home game in Serie A: the last team to record two wins in their first two home matches ever played in the top flight was AC Milan (in the 2018/19 season). AC Milan were beaten in their last Serie A away match against Roma, and in the top flight they have never lost two in a row away from home.
The Rossonere are the team with the most clean sheets on the road in Serie A since the start of last season (eight).
Parma are one of four teams in this league who have both scored and conceded goals in each of their first three games (the others being Fiorentina, Inter and Sassuolo). AC Milan have not drawn any of their last eight Serie A matches: but have lost three of their last four (1 win), having won all four before these.

GENERAL STATS
The Gialloblù have had three headed shots on target so far, no team has more in this league (equal with Sampdoria and Inter), with one goal coming from these headers (Melania Martinovic against Fiorentina). AC Milan is the team with the lowest average possession over the first three matches of this championship (41%). Only Como (25) have attempted fewer shots than AC Milan (28) so far too. Parma is the team have the most shots after gaining possession so far in this Serie A season (11, one goal scored).

FOCUS GIOCATRICI
Ana Jelencic and Valeria Pirone have already scored in Serie A against AC Milan: for the defender it was her last goal in the top division (23 May 2021 for Verona); the striker, on the other hand, scored one of the two goals in Chievo Verona’s victory over the Rossonere on 20 April 2019 (2-1). Melania Martinovic has scored in two of her last four Serie A appearances, as many times as in her previous 16 matches played in the competition. Alessia Capelletti has touched the ball most times in her own penalty area in the current chamionship (122). Michela Cambiaghi, who last scored on 12 September against Sassuolo at the Tardini, has the chance to score in two consecutive home matches in Serie A for the first time in the last three seasons. Nora Heroum played 35 Serie A matches for AC Milan between 2018/19 and 2019/20, scoring two goals. Erika Santoro (12) and Linda Tucceri Cimini (11) have recorded the most successful crosses (Giada Pondini is also on 11), Malgorzata Mesjasz scored her first Serie A goal in the last round; the last Polish player to score at least two goals within the same Italian league season was Katarzyna Daleszczyk (two for Sassuolo in the 2018/19 season).
