– Juventus have won six of their last eight Serie A matches against Parma (D1 L1), including the last two away games in a row against them.

– Among teams they have faced more than twice at home in Serie A, Juventus are the side Parma have the worst win percentage against: 28%, seven out of 25.

– Parma have drawn 0-0 in three home consecutive games for the first time since 1996, while they’ve never had four in a row in Serie A; indeed, they are the side with the most 0-0’s this term (three).

– The first of Álvaro Morata’s three braces in Serie A came against Parma, when he netted twice in a 7-0 victory for Juventus in November 2014.
