Juventus vs Parma: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
The Juventus steamroller looks as though it’ll keep on going against 12th-placed Parma as the Old Lady head to yet another Serie A success.
Juventus’ late comeback against Lazio on the last matchday was a timely and thoroughly demoralising reminder to the rest of Serie A that even on the days they seem beatable, they still win.
Two goals in the last 16 minutes meant that Juventus kept their unbeaten record and improved to 19 wins, two draws and zero losses.
Roberto D’Aversa’s Parma cannot be asking for much more in their first season back in Serie A as they currently reside in 12th place. The mid-table side have been neither particularly here nor there offensively or defensively this season with 21 goals and 27 conceded in 21 games.
Facing the Bianconeri at the Allianz Stadium is a tough task for any side, but it’s a particularly daunting task for a side like Parma. One key to the game will surely be the inability of Parma’s attack to relieve pressure on their defensive line by carrying the ball forward and creating their own attacks.
The home side’s combination of superior attacking and defensive talent will easily see them through this one – 3-0 Juve.
Over 2.5 goals
A recurring bet with online betting sites this season considering their goal scoring form but for good reason. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Juventus’ last three Serie A games with the Bianconeri themselves scoring at least two of those in their last three.
Juventus to win to nil
Allegri’s side emerging as victors seems a foregone conclusion in this match but adding a clean sheet to your bet is a great way to increase the odds. This match seems Juventus’ league-leading defence with 12 goals conceded in 21 games come up against Parma’s seventh-worst attack.

The reverse of this fixture came back in September where Allegri’s side walked away from the Stadio Ennio Tardini as 2-1 winners courtesy of Blaise Matuidi and Mario Mandzukic.
