Parma hosts Juventus in round 1 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Saturday, August 24th at Stadio Ennio Tardini (Parma)
Parma held five friendly games in the summer off-season period. The team gained three victories, lost in one match and played a draw. The Yellow-blues lost to English Burnley. There was also an overwhelming victory over one of the underdogs in the debut of the friendly matches’ cycle - Prad. And I also note that Parma held the first official game in the cup, where it beat Venezia.

Juventus somehow did not impress in the friendly games. It lost to Tottenham in the debut and played in a draw with Inter. It also played a draw with K-League, lost to Atletico and beat Tristina. In general, Juventus gained only one victory in five summer friendly matches.
Here I will focus on the underdog. Of course, Parma is weaker than Juventus in terms of skills. There is no doubt about that, especially considering the current squad of Signora. Moreover, Buffon returned after a year in France. And Ronaldo will hold the second season in the camp of Juventus. But the start may turn out not very powerful for Old Signora. As I have already said, it didn’t show outstanding results in pre-season games. Well, I’ll also note head-to-head matches. Parma sensationally managed to take away points from Juventus in the second round in Turin, when no one was expecting it at all. Therefore, I am ready to wait for anything from the Crusaders. Well, given the plus handicap that I took as the intended outcome for the upcoming meeting, I note that Juventus has never beaten Parma in Parma with a difference of more than two goals. I will say more: Signora managed to beat the Yellow-blues in Parma with a difference of more than one goal only once in the entire history.
Prediction for the match: Parma to win with +2.0 handicap
