Juventus are on track to grab another Serie A title and there is nothing anyone can do to stop them. They are coming off a tough loss in the Coppa Italia though that put an end to their run in the competition. Juventus will now return home after two away matches, where they will play host to Parma on Saturday. Parma have not been anything special so far but they should avoid the relegation fairly easily.

Total: 3 Goals
Juventus (19-0-2) met a really tough loss in their last match, a bad loss in many ways. They were hosted by Atalanta in a one-off match for the Coppa Italia quarter-finals and were really bad overall. Their opponents took an early two-goal lead and eventually scored a third goal at the end of the match for the final 3-0 that left Juventus eliminated. That loss came to put an end to a five-match winning streak for Juventus where they also kept three clean sheets. They are still comfortably sitting at the top spot with 59 points, 11 ahead of Napoli. Juventus have been almost perfect at home so far in the league (10-0-1) and have won each of their last seven while keeping six clean sheets in the process.
On the other hand, Parma (8-9-4) are coming off a really upsetting 3-2 loss at home against SPAL over the weekend. They actually made a great start in that match and were already leading by two goals by the start of the second half. But they fell off in the later stages of the game and conceded three goals that left them with no points from that match. Parma have been really trying to find stability lately but have won just two of their last eight matches (2-4-2). They are now sitting at the 12th spot of the league with 28 points, with a safe 14-point distance from the relegation zone. They have also been really competitive on the road so far (5-5-0) and have won each of their last two.
Juventus did a solid job in the first round when they beat Parma by 2-1 on the road. They have now won five of the last six matches against Parma and have also been great as hosts. Juventus have won each of the last four here against Parma and have lost just twice over the past two decades.
Juventus are coming off a really bad loss and will surely look for a confident performance in order to bounce back. They will be extra competitive here and surely have the upper hand against an inferior Parma side.
