Juventus continue their quest for a ninth consecutive Serie A title with a home game against Parma.

Serie A holders Juventus kick off the second half of the 2019-20 campaign hosting Parma at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday evening.

The Bianconeri reclaimed the leading position on the table from Inter Milan last weekend with a 2-1 away win at AS Roma, but lost Turkish defender Merih Demiral until the end of the season due to an ACL injury.

They started the new year with three wins in three games and will be looking to maintain their perfect record, making it four in a row against Parma.

Parma

Parma finished the first half of the season on the high seventh position with 28 points on their account (8W, 4D and 7L), only a single point behind a Europa League spot.

The Crusaders now travel to Turin hoping to repeat what they did last February when two late goals from Gervinho secured a 3-3 draw for the visitors.

The form is not on their side though, as they’ve won just one of their last four games across all competitions, losing 2-0 to Roma in Coppa Italia in their most recent outing.

Cristiano Ronaldo returns to Maurizio Sarri’s squad after missing out on the 4-0 win over Udinese last Wednesday.

The Portuguese has scored nine goals in his last six Serie A outings, finding the net in each game of the process.
