Match Preview

With ten wins each and 13 draws, there hasn’t been much to choose between Bologna and Parma in the 33 Serie A (SA) Emilia-Romagna derbies, just like the one point separating the clubs this season.
The hosts are on the cusp of SA safety, and notwithstanding an ill-tempered 2-1 loss to Milan last time out, have six wins in nine SA games (W6, D1, L2). Their scoring record of 2.0 goals during this period, towers over their average of 0.77 in the 26 games prior.
Bologna failed to score in just one match during that nine-game period, while the previous 26 saw them fail to find the net in 12 fixtures. With five straight SA home wins, Bologna are on their best run since 2002 and have won 25 of their 37 league points this season at home.
Visiting Parma are winless in eight league games, including five straight draws, which is 45.45% of their season total (11). In fact, all four of their SA away draws this season have come in their last seven trips (D4, L3).
Indeed, six of the last nine SA derbies, and three of the last four at this venue, have ended in stalemate, which won’t be a bad result for Parma considering their extensive list of injuries and suspensions.
Players to watchRodrigo Palacio (BOL) has nine goals in 12 SA games against Parma, his personal league best. Meanwhile Gervinho (PAR) hasn’t contributed goals/assists in successive matches for 18 SA games now.
Stat attack: All of Bologna’s last 14 SA goals have come in the second half.
Six of Parma’s last eight SA away games have produced over 2.5 match goals.
Four of Bologna’s ten clean sheets in SA this season have arrived in their last nine games.
