Juventus vs Parma: Prediction
This game is quite similar to Lecce – Inter. I fully expect Juventus to dominate the match from start to finish and record a convincing win. With Ronaldo on fire, I’ll grab the hosts in -1.5 Asian Handicap.
When it comes to by second pick, I will go with Over 3 (Asian Total). At least three goals have been scored in last nine Binaconeri’s fixtures in all competitions and Parma have been involved in some high-scoring road games against the big dogs.
