Match Preview

Parma halted their two-match Serie A (SA) losing streak with a 1-0 win in the previous round, but haven’t won consecutive league games since November. Their wins tend to be hard-fought, with eight of Parma’s last ten SA victories coming by a single-goal margin. Additionally, seven of their last eight SA wins saw Parma open the scoring.
However the hosts have been slow starters this league season, failing to score in the first 30 minutes. Unsurprisingly then, 80% of their SA goals have been netted after half-time (four of five), although notably, Parma have conceded 71.43% of their league goals (five of seven) in the first half.
A 2-1 win over AC Milan made it five SA results (win/loss) via a single-goal margin for Torino. As such, scoring first could be crucial because four of those five games saw the winner net first. Furthermore, 17 of the 19 SA H2H results either way favoured the side that opened the scoring.
Action in Torino’s fixtures usually starts late, with ten of the 15 total goals across their SA games this season arriving after half-time. The visitors contribute heavily to that, with Torino scoring 75% of their SA goals in the second half (six of eight). Additionally, they have failed to score a first-half goal in their last three SA matches.
Players to watch: Parma’s Gervinho has one goal and two assists in four SA matches against Torino, while Torino’s Andrea Belotti has scored all four of his SA goals this term during the second half.
Stat attack: Six of the last eight SA H2Hs at this venue were goalless at half-time.
Parma have scored in both halves in just one of their five SA games.
In four of Parma’s five SA results this season (win/loss), the winner scored first.
Three of Torino’s last five SA matches ended 2-1 either way.
