Parma vs Juventus Betting Tips
The new season of the Italian Serie A starts this Saturday with a clash between Parma and last season’s champions, Juventus. Actually, Juventus have won this championship eight times in a row. This team is once again the number 1 favorite for winning the title, even though some major changes have happened in Juve over the summer. They signed a couple of players during the transfer period, but an even more important factor is the managerial change that happened. Massimiliano Allegri is out, Maurizio Sarri is in.
The new coach was supposed to make his debut at Juve’s helm against Parma but that’s now at stake. Sarri was recently diagnosed with pneumonia, so he might not be able to manage his team in the season opener. That’s something Parma are hoping to take advantage of, although the chances that Juve would drop points look very slim. Even without Sarri on the bench, Juventus seem capable of beating Parma. After all, what’s most important is what’s happening on the pitch. And that’s where this team has a huge amount of talent. Starting with Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus seem incredibly strong in all areas of the game.
Last season, Juventus lost only four games in total. But, all those were away matches. Still, the fact that three away defeats happened while the title was already secured means that Juve can play well anywhere, not just on their own turf. Parma, on the other hand, do not think home turf is a big advantage. Actually, this team was one of the worst last seasons when home points are concerned. Only Chievo and Frosinone had won fewer points at home than Parma in the 2018-19 season. And both of those teams got relegated. For all these reasons Parma are enormous underdogs in Saturday’s match.

Parma Form and Latest News
Parma did spend a few million on transfers during summer, but we saw no major players joining this team. On the bright side, most of the players who were crucial for last season’s success of this team are still in the squad. Therefore, it’s fair to say their fans should be optimistic that Parma will once again finish the season above the relegation zone. But, Parma’s fans definitely should not be optimistic about their chances in the clash with Juventus this weekend.
Juventus Form and Latest News
Even though they did sell a couple of players, they also made some amazing signings over summer. Aaron Ramsey has joined the club from Arsenal on a free transfer, while they bought the Dutch wunderkind defender De Ligt from Ajax, as well as promising Italian full-back Pellegrini from Roma. Apart from the illness of their manager, they have no major health concerns. All of their key men are fit and ready to do their best in the season opener.
