Parma and Benevento will go head-to-head at the Ennio Tardini Stadium in round 16 of the Italian Serie B on Thursday (December 8).
The visitors head into the midweek clash winless in four games against I Crociati and will look to end the poor run.
Parma failed to arrest their slump in form, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Cagliari last Saturday. They have now failed to win three of their last four games, losing twice and drawing one since the start of November.
Despite their recent struggles, Parma are fourth in the standings, only behind third-placed Bari on goal difference.
Meanwhile, Benevento were sent crashing down to earth last time out, as they suffered a 1-0 home loss against Palermo.
Before that, they were unbeaten in four games, claiming one win and three draws. With 15 points from as many games, Benevento are 17th in the league table, one point below 15th-placed Cosenza outside the relegation playoff places.
