Parma vs Monza Head-to-Head

This will be the first competitive meeting between the two sides. They each have promotion ambitions this term and will need maximum points to keep their hopes alive.

Monza have fallen some way off their standards since last season and have won just one of their last five matches. Parma have also found the going tough since their demotion from the top-flight last term and are currently on a four-game winless run.
