Parma vs Juventus build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
The former midfield maestro has guided the Old Lady to third in Serie A following his appointment in the summer and is yet to taste defeat in the Italian top-flight. He is just one of two managers without a blot on their record this term, alongside AC Milan’s Stefano Pioli. Up next is 14th-placed Parma.
The Old Lady were restricted to yet another draw last time out, their sixth stalemate of the campaign in just 12 matches, with Atalanta returning to Bergamo a point better off after Cristiano Ronaldo saw his penalty saved by former Aston Villa goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini on the hour mark.
They now face off against another stalemate specialist in the form of Parma who, alongside Juve, are the only other club with six or more draws this term. One of those was against table-toppers AC Milan at the weekend, and Fabio Liverani would certainly not turn his nose up at fourth straight draw on Saturday.
- Parma (vs Cagliari): Sepe; Iacoponi, Osorio, Alves, Pezzella; Kucka, Scozzarella, Kurtic; Karamoh, Gervinho, Inglese.
- Juventus (vs Atalanta): Szczesny; Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Danilo; Arthur, Bentancur, Chiesa, McKennie; Morata, Ronaldo.
The hosts will be without Vincent Laurini and Alberto Grassi, while Juventus have no major injuries to contend with other than that to Merih Demiral.
Players to watch:
- Parma: The chief protagonist for Juve is, of course, Ronaldo, so one player who will be relishing the chance to come up against the Portuguese superstar is compatriot Bruno Alves. The 39-year-old Parma skipper was a teammate of Ronaldo when Portugal lifted their first-ever major crown at Euro 2016 and he will be keen to prove that even just a year before his 40th birthday, he can still wrestle with the very best.
- Juventus: Federico Chiesa has already netted in the Champions League this season for Juve, and in Serie A with Fiorentina back in September, but he is now off the mark for his new club in the top flight after bagging a goal against Atalanta last time out. The 23-year-old Italy international has been used in just about every wide position by Pirlo this season, ranging from right midfield to left wing-back, but he will now be hoping to find some consistency in front of goal after opening his Serie A account for the Old Lady.
