Theo’s favourite victim and formidable away form: All the key stats ahead of Parma vs. Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will be looking to return to winning ways this evening when they face Parma at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.

Not only is their form this season a huge cause for concern, but Parma have not really had the better of recent clashes against Milan either, winning on just three of the last meetings. The last time the Rossoneri lost at the Tardini was back in 2013, in a 3-2 defeat, while since then two wins and a draw have followed including a 5-4 thriller in 2014.

Below are the best pre-match stats…

➤ Parma’s last win against Milan in Serie A was back in March 2014 (4-2) – since then, there’s been five Rossoneri wins and two draws.

➤ After the 2-2 draw in the reverse match, Milan and Parma could draw both matches in a single Serie A campaign for the first time since 2007-08.

➤ Milan have netted in each of their last seven away Serie A games against Parma: the last time the Rossoneri failed to score at the Tardini stadium in the top-flight was back in March 2010, under Leonardo.

➤ Parma have had the fewest wins in Serie A this season (three): only 6.4% of the sides with three or fewer wins after 29 Serie A matches in a season (3/47) avoided relegation at the end of the campaign.

➤ In 2021, Milan have picked up 26 points in 15 Serie A matches (18 of these coming away from home) – five sides have gained more points in this period.

➤ Milan have won 14 of their last 16 Serie A away games: drawing the other 2-2 v Genoa in December 2020 and losing 0-2 v Spezia in February 2021.

➤ Milan have dropped the fewest points from winning positions in Serie A this season (two), while only Torino (25) have lost more than Parma (21) from leading situations.

➤ The next will be Jasmin Kurtic’s 50th appearance in all competitions with Parma, he has scored in both of his Serie A matches against Milan with Parma.

➤ Parma are the only side against which Theo Hernandez has scored more than one goal in Serie A: he has netted three goals for Milan against the Gialloblu (including a brace in the reverse match).
