To see all of our predictions, user poll & stats for Benevento v Parma, scroll down - as well as the best betting odds.
Benevento, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Serie A triumph vs Juventus.
In that match, Benevento managed 27% possession and 7 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Benevento was Adolfo Gaich (69'). Juventus had 21 shots at goal with 7 of them on target.
Benevento haven’t exactly had impressive attacking statistics of late. Their goals record equals just 3 versus opposition teams over their previous six matches. In those meetings, Benevento have also seen the tally of goals scored against them come to 10. That trend isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, however.
Heading into this contest, Benevento are without a win at home for the past 7 matches in the league. Their fans aren't happy.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Genoa in Serie A action, Parma will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Parma managed 56% possession and 12 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. The scorer for Parma was Graziano Pellè (16'). At the other end, Genoa had 9 shots at goal with 2 on target. Gianluca Scamacca (50', 69') was the scorer for Genoa.
The numbers tell their own story, and Parma have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 11 goals in total. Defensively, I Crociati could really do with shoring things up.
Their prior results show that Parma:
- are undefeated in their previous 2 away league matches.
- are without an away win for the past 8 league matches. What a terrible run of away results.
