Parma vs Juventus
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 24 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma).
Juve is determined more than ever deliver on the European stage this time around. After eight straight Scudettos, it’s becoming more of a routine for the Old Lady to cruise through the Italian league.
Still, it doesn’t mean that the players or the fans see the domestic title lightly. We can count on them to go full throttle right from the beginning.
Last season, they had eyed an unbeaten campaign but had to let go of the dream after it had looked promising for a long period. This time around, they have made some major signings, and will once more attempt for that glory.
Hosts Parma will be cursing their luck, as they have been picked as fodder for the beast in the first match-day. They alone know how lucky the team was to avoid relegation in 2018-19, and now they are supposed to challenge the eight-time defending champions.
While they do have the home advantage to lean on, it might not count much against the juggernauts from Turin. Moreover, with the arrival of the likes of Mathijs de Ligt, Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot, etc, the squad has just gotten better.

Parma vs Juventus Prediction
It’d be hard to pick a more lopsided match this first day of the Serie A. While the visitors are the eight-time running champions of the competition, and a usual suspect come to the Champions League, their counterparts were struggling to stay alive in this league.
Moreover, the Old Lady has had posted some truly superior and impressive h2h stats against this opponent over the course of the last few years.
They registered 14 of the previous 18 h2h wins and scored two or more goals in four of the former six clashes. In addition, three of the prior four encounters at this venue saw the visitors taking the three points, and they kept three clean sheets from their last six attempts here as well.
Finally, Juve would be raring to make a statement to the whole world with their new arrivals, and their seriousness about lifting the European crown.
In all probability, count on them to post a convincing win this weekend.
