Massimiliano Allegri saw his Juventus side get dumped out of the Copa Italia by Atlanta in midweek and will want a strong reaction from his squad when they host Parma at home. They currently hold a 11 point lead at the top of the table and have been in scintillating form in the league. Parma have done extremely well on their return to top flight football in Italy. Currently 12th in the league, they can look forward to playing without fear against Juventus. They are not expected to get even a point from the Allianz Area and the pressure somewhat could be on the hosts to please the fans.
Cristiano Ronaldo has featured 29 times for Juventus this season but looks set to start once again. The Portuguese great has scored fifteen times this season and is the Turin club’s leading goal scorer. Paulo Dybala who has been linked with a move away to Real Madrid could be rested for the game. Mario Mandzukic who has only recently returned from injury could get a place on the bench. The arrival of Martin Caceres on loan from Lazio is a huge boost considering Mehdi Benatia left the home side in the winter transfer window. The experienced duo Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are not available for the game which means the defending champions will have to opt for a makeshift defence.
Gervinho has been in a standout player for Parma this season and the former Arsenal man could benefit against a weakened Juventus backline. The Ivory Coast forward has raw pace and an eye for goal that makes him one of the players to watch out for in the game. Juraj Kucka should start once again after his move from Trabzonspor. Veteran defender Bruno Alves will be entrusted with the task of marking his fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo. Although lacking pace, Alves has experience which can come in handy in playing against a world-class attack. Juventus scored seven past Parma when the two teams last met in Turin back in 2014 and the home fans would want a repeat of that famous result.
