Juventus – Parma, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR JUVENTUS - PARMA
Juventus lost for the first time in an Italian tournament by a local rival on Wednesday after a 0-3 loss from Atalanta, which shocked a lot of people, but based on their performance with Lazio may have been logical to some extent, and Allegri himself said after the match, that “the loss was in the air”. Juventus is now going to chase the double and they have to come back immediately on the road to success against Parma, who are in the middle of the table.
Parma, however, has already recorded quite interesting results as a guest this season and has won against teams like Fiorentina, Torino and Inter, but they were defeated by Atalanta, Napoli and Sampdoria. Ultimately, it’s hard to predict which Parma face we will see now, but definitely if Juventus is playing at 100%, the guests are unlikely to have any chance, but it is important to them that they are far from the danger zone.
Juventus are champions and are obliged to react. This means that they are expected to have a remarkable victory against Parma. The old lady has allowed only 5 goals at home so far, which means that their defense is extremely stable. We do not think Parma will be attacking, but rather will have defensive approach. We expect Juventus to score a goal in the first half and lead the half time most likely. In 5 of the last 7 home games in the league Juve was leading at the half time, but Chiellini and Bonucci are out, so our prediction is secured – Juve to score in first half at 1.45. Alternative pick – Juve to score in both halves at 1.82
