Juventus vs Parma: how it happened

Juventus vs Parma: match preview

Another home game in Serie A for Massimiliano Allegri's side. That will be another three points in the bag then to add to their tally as they stroll to retaining their title once again. Well, that's certainly what most people are thinking. Could visitors Parma have a shock lined up for us? Those that want them to cause an upset in Turin can look to Atalanta's performance in the Coppa Italia. They may also cling to the fact that talisman Cristiano Ronaldo is being questioned for the first time since joining his new club. It should be fun to watch how it all transpires on the pitch.

Juventus team news

Forget the question marks that have been raised recently about Cristiano's home scoring form, Massimiliano Allegri will likely be more concerned about his defensive situation. Andrea Barzagli, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are all injured and there is no Medhi Benatia to call upon, after he left for Al-Duhail in the recently closed transfer window. Positive news, however, comes in the form of those returning from injury. Khedira, Mandzukic and Pjanic were substitutes in the Coppa loss and should be in line for pitchtime at some point. Martin Caceres, who came in on loan from Lazio in January, will be ready to take his place.

Juventus predicted XI: Szczesny; Cancelo, Rugani, Caceres, Sandro; Can, Bentancur, Matuidi; Dybala, Cristiano, Costa

Parma team news

Roberto D'Aversa should have the pick of his squad for tonight's huge test, although both Grassi and Rigoni are doubtful due to knocks. The new boy from Trabzonspor, Juraj Kucka, should get another start while Roberto Inglese will aim to add to his two goals against SPAL last time out.

Parma predicted XI: Sepe; Iacoponi, Alves, Bastoni, Gagliolo; Barilla, Scozzarella, Kucka; Gervinho, Inglese, Biabiany
