Parma vs Juventus
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Ennio Tardini.
It is a bit surprising to see that Juventus haven’t won three Serie A games in a row throughout this season so far. They had great opportunity for that during the mid-week action, hosting Atalanta in Torino but the final result was not successful – 1:1 FT. Andrea Pirlo’s boys had the lead thanks to goal of Federico Chiesa, but performance in second half was underwhelming.
The good news is that gap from table leaders AC Milan remained the same. The Old Lady is paying a visit to Stadio Ennio Tardini on Saturday night with a hope to bounce back to winning ways against unpleasant Parma. This opponent caused trouble to the reigning Serie A champions two times in the last five years. Still, visitors are huge favorites for the win, priced at 1.33 odds.
Parma vs Juventus Head-to-head
As expected, stats from previous head to head encounters is heavily going in favour of Juventus. The Old Lady was victorious in 25 out of 48 games, while losing to Parma in only nine occasions. Their win rate at Ennio Tardini though is under 50%.
The most recent clash took place in Torino in January. Juve have won it 2-1 and both goals were scored by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Parma have scored at least one goal against Juventus in four out of last six h2h clashes.
Parma vs Juventus Prediction
Parma have faced different types of opponents in the last three weeks and every single outcome was a draw. Fans were expecting to see more from home fixtures versus Benevento and Cagliari, but both ended without goals. A lot of drama was seen in their duel against AC Milan at San Siro which finished 2-2 FT. Visitors wasted two-goals advantage. Hernani and Kurtic bagged goals for Parma. Truth be told, this team doesn’t have high ambitions for this season. Anything but a relegation will be considered as success.
Andrea Pirlo was stressed out after the match against Atalanta, talking a lot about current state of the team and how they shouldn’t rely on individual quality. Good news for him and Juve’s fans is that Paulo Dybala finally scored last weekend in a win against Genoa, which was surely a release for psychological burden for him. We will tip Old Lady not only to win this upcoming match, but also to keep a clean sheet.
