The match is over.
The opening weekend of the Serie A campaign sees Parma welcome eight in a row champions Juventus to the Stadio Ennio Tardini on Saturday evening.
Parma were one of the few teams that took a point off the Bianconeri before they mathematically won the league in April by coming from two goals down to draw 3-3 in the Allianz Stadium in February.
The odds of another similar score line in this one is a massive 75/1 with 10Bet, that result is highly unlikely however, while a 1-0 Juve victory is a better bet and is available at 6/1 with 10bet.
JUVENTUS TO WIN THE GAME 1-0 AT 6/1
Juventus have changed Coach with Maurizio Sarri arriving from Chelsea to replace Max Allegri who parted ways with the club after five years and five league titles. The champions are looking to develop a more attacking football philosophy in their aim to lift the Champions League. It could take a while for Sarri to get his squad firing on all cylinders and Parma could take advantage of the potential upheaval with the Old Lady, and that could be why the bookies are offering odds of 4/9 for the Total Goals under 3.5 market.
MATCH TO END WITH LESS THAN 3.5 GOALS AT 4/9
Cristiano Ronaldo had been struggling with injury in the final pre-season warm up games, but is expected to be fit in time for the league opener. The Portuguese superstar scored 21 times in his debut season in Italy and is 49/20 to score the first goal of this tie.
RONALDO TO SCORE FIRST AT 49/20
Juve will hope to kick start their league campaign with a win, but the Giallorossi could be a tough nut to crack in their home ground. The champion’s attacking firepower might prove to be the difference in this game and that could be why the best sites are offering short odds for a Juventus win. 10bet are offering 15/2 for a 2-1 win for the Bianconeri.
GAME TO END 1-2 AT 15/2
Head to Head
These sides last met in Serie A in February and the game finished 3-3 at the Allianz Stadium. In the previous fixture at the Ennio Tardini it was the Bianconeri that ran out 2-1 winners. The Old Lady take the historical head to head by winning 23 of the last 46 matches between the sides, while Parma have managed just nine victories, while there have been 14 draws.
The match to end in a Juve win
Parma will want to give their home fans something to sing about on the opening day of the season and will be keen to pick up something out of this fixture. New signing Yann Karamoh who joined from Inter could make his debut along with French full-back Vincent Laurini. Meanwhile, Danish striker Andreas Cornelius will fight it out with Roberto Inglese for a starting role up top – while last season’s top goal scorer Gervinho is fit and ready to go and will want to add to his brace he netted against the Bianconeri last term.
For Juventus, this match will be a good test of their new ideology, can they win with an attacking style or will it be more of the same, grinding out results, particularly against sides like Parma. Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey arrived on free transfers from Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal respectively and will be pushing for a starting role in midfield, while €75m signing from Ajax Matthijs de Ligt could also feature.
