The defending champions continued their dismal Serie A campaign on Sunday afternoon when they fell 1-0 at Atalanta. Juventus have up the title contest much earlier, but they’ve put their top-four finish in jeopardize after this latest failure. They are now only two points above Napoli in fifth and four points ahead of Lazio in sixth. I Biancocelesti have a game in hand also.
Andrea Pirlo’s men are thus in a must-win situation on Wednesday evening when they play host to penultimate-placed Parma at Allianz Stadium. Anything but a comprehensive confidence-boosting victory for the hosts would represent a huge upset, especially after Parma’s shocking defeat at the weekend. I Crociati had a two-goal advantage on two occasions against direct relegation rivals Cagliari on Sunday. They were 2-3 up at the 90th minute of the game only to concede two stoppage-time goals and lose the game at Sardegna Arena 4-3 at the end.
Juventus vs Parma Head-to-head
Parma have not been a serious opposition to I Bianconeri in the last decade. Juventus won four and drew one of the last five encounters with I Crociati. I Bianconeri celebrated a demolishing 0-4 victory when they visited Stadio Ennio Tardini in the first part of the season.
Juventus vs Parma Prediction
Parma are now 10 points shy of the safe zone and have a mission impossible to try and save themselves in the remaining seven rounds of the season. They took only one point from the last four Serie A outings, conceding at least two goals in each of them. We just can’t see how Roberto D’Aversa could possibly lift the team’s spirits after the aforementioned defeat to Cagliari on Sunday.
Parma now also have the second-worst defence in the competition. They shipped seven goals in the last two losses to Milan (1-3) and Cagliari (4-3). This will be the music to the ears of Cristiano Ronaldo (who should be back in the squad after skipping the weekend’s defeat at Atalanta) & company. This is a perfect opportunity for I Bianconeri to boost up their confidence ahead of the most important part of the season. Juventus to win by at least two goals difference is our main betting option here.
