Carmnigani v Mancini

The only previous meeting between the two coaches was in the 2001/02 Serie A season when Carmignani's Parma beat Mancini's Fiorentina 2-0 at the Tardini.

Seven players on target for Parma

Just seven different players have scored for Parma so far this season (Gilardino, Marchionni, Morfeo, Sorrentino, Bovo, Bresciano, Cannavaro), making the Gialloblu one of seven teams to have scored with the fewest players. The others are Atalanta, Brescia, Messina, Palermo, Roma and Siena.

Marchionni set for Parma century

Against Inter at the Tardini, Marco Marchionni will make his 100th appearance for the Gialloblu. Marchionni made his debut for the club in the 2-0 Champions League defeat at home to Lillie on 8 August 2001. For Parma he has played 76 times in the league, 6 times in the Coppa Italia, 16 times in Europe and once in the Italian Super Cup.

Bobo one hundred

Christian Vieri is one away from his 100th Serie A goal for Inter, having scored his 98th and 99th at th Renzo Barbera on Sunday. Vieri's first league goal for the Nerazzurri was on 29 August 1999, when he scored a hat-trick in Inter 3-0 Verona.

Final minutes decisive?

Parma v Inter is the match between the two 2004/05 teams that let in the most and score the most goals in the final fifteen-minute periods of matches. The Gialloblu have let in 12, while Inter have scored 14.

35 games without defeat

Inter haven't lost a competitive match in 2004/05. Including the last two victories at the end of last season after the 2-1 defeat at Lecce on 2 May, Inter are now unbeaten in 35 matches (18 wins and 17 draws).

No away goal against Inter for 273'

The last time Inter let in a goal away from home was when Flo scored in the 87th minute of the 2-2 draw at Siena last 12 December. The Nerazzurri have since kept a clean sheet for the remaining three minutes of that game plus the entire matches away to Livorno, Reggina and Palermo.

Oba top scorer in 2005

With his goal against Atalanta in midweek, Obafemi Martins has now scored 7 in just 458 minutes of action since the start of the year. The Nigerian has scored 3 in the league and 4 in the cup.

Three likely scorers

According to the statistics, Cruz, Stankovic and Materazzi could score at the Tardini. The Argentine striker counts Parma and Lecce as his favourite targets, with four goals against both teams. Stankovic has scored three against the Gialloblu, AC Milan, Roma and Greek side Panionios, while Marco Materazzi has put three past Parma keeper Frey and Turci.

PARMA - Goals from Ivan Cordoba and Christian Vieri saw Inter hold Parma to a 2-2 draw in a dramatic Serie A Week 23 encounter at the Tardini, with the Nerazzurri in ten men for 55 minutes after Marco Materazzi was dismissed.

After twice hitting the woodwork, the Gialloblu took the lead on 36 minutes in an Inter-dominated first half. Mark Bresciano hit the crossbar on 12 minutes then Simplicio hit the post before converting from the spot after Materazzi was sent off for handling the ball in the box. Ex-Nerazzurri keeper Sebastian Frey denied Davids and Stankovic as both midfielders had good chances to equalise on the stroke of half time.

Gilardino doubled for Parma fifteen minutes into the second half with a spectacular effort from inside the Nerazzurri box, and it looked like Inter's long unbeaten run was in serious doubt. But like they have done so often this season, Mancini's men kept their composure and Cordoba pulled one back on 76 minutes, rising above the Parma defence to head home a Mihajlovic inswinger. Christian Vieri equalised from the penalty spot with his 100th Serie A goal for Inter on 82 minutes after Bonera fouled Cordoba in the box, and had an excellent chance for a winner but Adriano's ball across the six-yard box went through his legs at the far post.

The draw stretches Inter's unbeaten run to 36 matches, but the Nerazzurri slip to fourth in the table as Udinese beat Brescia 1-0 at the Rigamonti.
