Serie A 2003/04: if Parma take lead, they win

So far this Serie A season Parma have won every match in which they took the lead. It has happpened against Ancona, ChievoVerona, Lazio, Lecce, Modena, Perugia and Sampdoria. The Emilians seventh victory this season was at Brescia, where they came back from behind after Matuzalem's opening goal for the Swallows.

Parma close to club record of Serie A victories

After a bleak December, Parma were back to winning ways at Ancona on Tuesday. If the Gialloblu win at home to Inter they will equal their record of victories after 16 weeks of a Serie A championship in the 'three points for a win era'. The Emilians managed 9 wins from 16 matches in 1994/95, 1998/99 and 1999/00.

Junior and goals against Inter

He hasn't scored since 10 May 2002 and he only scores at the Tardini, but two of Junior de Souza's four Serie A goals have come against the Nerazzurri. The Brazilian midfielder hit a brace against Inter in Parma's 3-1 home win on 17 May 2001.

Morfeo v Toldo

One of the four goalkeepers Domenico Morfeo has scored most against is his former Fiorentina team-mate Francesco Toldo. The Parma playmaker has put three goals past the Nerazzurri custodian: one in Atalanta 1-3 Fiorentina (1995/96 Serie A) and two in Verona 2-1 Fiorentina (1999/00 Serie A).

Zac's goal machine

Since he arrived at Inter, Alberto Zaccheroni has created a veritable goal machine. The Nerazzurri have scored in eight consecutive matches, for a total of 21 goals. That's almost 3 goals per match. The last time Inter failed to score was in the 0-0 draw at home to Roma on 26 October 2003, Zac's debut on the black and blue bench.

Inter's defensive solidity

With 10 goals let in after the first 15 weeks of the current season, the Nerazzurri have never had such a solid defensive record since three points were awarded for a Serie A victory (1994/95 season onwards). The fewest number of goals let in by Inter after 16 rounds of a championship season is 13 (1994/95), while the Nerazzurri's absolute record of fewest goals conceded at the same point in a Serie A campaign is 5 (set in the record-breaking 1988/89 season).

DA IMPLEMENTARE
wins(4) draws(6) defeats(14)
PARMA - The Nerazzurri's first away match of 2004 finished in defeat as Parma marked Stefano Tanzi's last match in charge of the club with a 1-0 victory at the Tardini.

Parma's winner came four minutes before the break when Filippini ran onto Castellini's pass then from eight yards slotted into an open goal with Toldo stranded on the edge of his penalty area.

Inter's most meaningful chance of an end-to-end match fell to Christian Vieri on the half hour. Only the crossbar stopped Bobo from heading goal number 101 for Inter after an inch-perfect cross in from the left by Pasquale.
