Roma will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 1-3 Serie A triumph over Genoa.
In that game, Roma managed 50% possession and 18 shots on goal with 9 of them on target. The only player to score for Roma was Henrikh Mkhitaryan (45', 66', 85'). Genoa got 7 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Marko Pjaca (50') scored for Genoa.
Matches with Roma have often been lively encounters lately with a lot of goalmouth action the rule rather than the exception. Over their past 6 clashes, a total of 20 goals have gone in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 15 of those accredited to i Giallorossi. That kind of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this match, though.
Coming into this fixture, Roma are undefeated in their last 7 home league matches.
Previously, Parma drew 0-0 in the Serie A match with Fiorentina.
In that match, Parma managed 36% possession and 5 attempts at goal with 0 on target. For their opponents, Fiorentina got 6 shots on goal with 4 on target.
Fabio Liverani's Parma have seen their goal attempts be successful 10 times throughout their latest six matches. The number of goals that they have conceded during those same clashes equals 8.
Their past results show that Parma:
- have left without a victory over Roma when they've played them away from home in the last 19 matches in the league. A truly shameful run of away results.
- are without an away win for the past 3 league games.
Head to head
A glance at their most recent head-to-head meetings going back to 15/02/2015 shows that Roma have won 4 of these games and Parma 1, with the tally of drawn matches standing at 1.
12 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 8 of them from i Giallorossi and 4 being from I Crociati. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.
The last league match between these sides was Serie A match day 31 on 08/07/2020 when it finished Roma 2-1 Parma.
That day, Roma managed 58% possession and 25 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. Goals were scored by Henrikh Mkhitaryan (43') and Jordan Veretout (57').
Parma had 8 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. Juraj Kucka (9') scored.

Team News: Roma
Chris Smalling (Food Poisoning), Edin Dzeko (Corona virus), Marash Kumbulla (Corona virus), Federico Fazio (Corona virus), Javier Pastore (Surgery), Davide Santon (Biceps femoris muscle injury) and Nicolò Zaniolo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be available for Roma boss Paulo Fonseca.
Team News: Parma
Parma manager Fabio Liverani has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Valentin Mihaila (Muscular problems), Lautaro Valenti (Adductor problems) and Andrea Dini (Achilles tendon rupture) will miss out on this game. The suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Andrea Dini, Giuseppe Carriero and Giacomo Ricci.
It certainly seems that Parma will do really well to be getting goals against a Roma side who will more than likely fashion the chances to find the net multiple times while not conceding.
We’re expecting a 3-0 winning margin for Roma after 90 minutes.
