Parma, 13 October 2022 – The Women’s First Team are back in action this weekend after the international break, as they face a trip to Como on Saturday 15 October at 14:30 CEST. Check out our Match Pack and statistics of the two sides.

Como have earned only one point so far in their league campaign; if they were to not win at the weekend it would become the third season in a row that a newly-promoted side hadn’t won a game in their opening six Serie A games (Napoli in 2020/21 and Lazio in 2021/22). Como have conceded ten goals in their first three home games this season; last year, in Serie B, the side from Lombardy had started off the season letting in only two goals in four home games. Como have let in more goals from the penalty-spot (three) than other side in the league so far: two of their last four goals against have been from the twelve-yard mark (Pomigliano and Inter). Along with Juventus, no other team in Serie A has hit the woodwork more than Como (six) this season: three of those came in their last league game against Inter.

No other side in this season’s Serie A has had at least five appearances from players born after 1/1/2000 than Como (three: Chiara Beccari, Matilde Pavan and Alma Hilaj). For Parma, there’s been only one player: Bianca Bardin. Chiara Beccari is one of five forwards in this season’s Serie A (Asllani, Chawinga, Haug and Gago the others) to have already created at least seven chances for her teammates, and had at least seven shots (eleven in total for her) – out of the five, she is the youngest. Beccari (2004-born group) is the youngest scorer in this year’s league as well.  No other player has made more dribbles in this season than Como’s Chiara Beccari and Parma’s Joana Marchão (12, just as Inter’s Chawinga, too). Only Inter’s Anja Sønstevold (15) has made more crosses than Parma’s Erika Santoro (14), although the Parma player has made the most successful number of crosses (five).
