AC Milan vs Parma Preview

Posted by

Rossoneri will stay atop of the Serie A regardless of the result in this match, but they are looking to stay undefeated. Take a look at our AC Milan vs Parma Preview and see the latest news and stats.

AC Milan Recent Form & Team News

AC Milan began league action in December as they ended November, scoring exactly two goals (including one first-half penalty) to extend their unbeaten run in Serie A to 22 matches (W17, D5). Underlining Milan’s ability to give and take, six (W4, D2) of the last seven games in that sequence witnessed both teams scoring in matches producing over 2.5 total goals.

Rossoneri remain one of Europe’s best post-lockdown hosts, winning eight of 11 home league clashes since the SA’s 2019/20 restart, and beating the -1 handicap every time (W8, D3). Despite Milan’s gluttony for goals, five (62.5%) of eight halves played across the leaders’ last four home league victories have produced under 1.5 total match goals.

Player to watch: Four-goal Milan midfielder Franck Kessié scored from the spot (for 2-0) in his team’s last SA home win – his three other strikes have been match openers.

Hot stat: Dating back to May 2018, five of Milan’s last six home league wins by 3+ goals have seen them score the majority (or all) of their match goals in the second half.

Stefano Pioli cannot count on Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Thigh) and Simon Kjaer (muscle).

Parma Recent Form & Team News

Famed for once ending Milan’s legendary 58-game unbeaten SA run (May 1991-Mar 1993), Parma have been disappointing in SA since the end of the October international break (W1, D4, L2). Five of those seven games returned over 2.5 total goals, and the HT scoreline could be crucial, as Parma’s last five Serie A fixtures have each seen the HT result honored at FT.

The visitors’ away fixtures remain notoriously entertaining, with an average of 4.00 total goals per match across them this term (W1, D1, L3). However, they conceded one goal after the 85th minute mark in three (60%) of those outings, heightening the apparent probability of any points being dropped late on.

Player to watch: Gervinho was at the double in Parma’s win at Genoa (Nov 30), boosting his win-rate from goalscoring SA appearances with Parma to 47.37%.

Fabio Liverani will be without Valentin Mihaila (muscle), while the other players are fit and ready to play.
