Surprisingly Juventus were beaten in the hands of Atalanta with a landslide score of 0-3 in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals this season, which not only became the Bianconner’s first defeat of the season on the domestic stage, but also made Massimilliano Allegri’s squad knock out of the annual event. Painful indeed, but the defending champions of the Italian Serie A must quickly forget the defeat, because in fact they will face one of the rival teams, Parma. The match will take place next Sunday, February 3, 2019 at Allianz Stadium, Turin.
As we said, Juventus had to forget their failure in the Coppa Italia this season, although it was painful considering the Bianconneri was the defending champion in the last four years in a row. However, there are still two more competitions that can be won by Max Allegri’s team, including the Italian Serie A and the European Champions League. In Italian Serie A itself, Juventus are still 11 points ahead of their closest rivals, Napoli. However, the Bianconneri must continue to win in order to ensure a place at the top until the end of the season.
On paper, Juventus is better than Parma, especially this season Parma is one of the promotion teams in the Italian Serie A. In their last five matches in all competitions, Juventus only swallowed one defeat and won 4 victories between them, while Parma only won 2 victories and swept 2 defeats. In the standings, the visitors occupy the 12th place.
