Here are the 11 names on the teamsheet when it comes to Juventus matches away to Parma down the years. The formation, this time, is a rather "imaginative" 3-4-1-2!
As goalkeeper of Parma, Buffon conceded the very first goal of his fantastic career against, you’ve guessed it: Juventus! Upon switching to the Bianconeri in 2001, Buffon proved time and time again that the nickname ‘Superman’ he received at his first professional club was completely justified.
The first goalscorer in the first Serie A match ever played between Parma and Juventus. On 9 September 1990, defender Niccolò Napoli was the unlikely source when he stepped up in the 23rdminute to give the Bianconeri the lead in an eventual 2-1 victory at the Stadio Ennio Tardini.
Five years at Parma and exactly the same number at Juventus. For both clubs, the former France international and World Cup winner established himself as one of the greatest defenders of his generation.
A team-mate of Thuram and Buffon with Parma, Cannavaro wore the captain's armband en route to winning the UEFA Cup, Italian Super Cup and two Coppa Italia titles.
With the Bianconeri, the Italian World Cup winner strengthened added to his trophy haul by lifting three Scudetti and two more Super Cups.
They say that practice makes perfect and that was certainly the case for Camoranesi at Parma! In 2004-05, he fired a shot from outside the box that beat opposition keeper, Sébastien Frey, all ends up, only to cannon off the post.
The following season, the tricky winger tried his luck once more, this time correcting his aim by a matter of centimeters to ripple the net in style. Nothing to do for Cristiano Lupatelli in the Parma goal.
‘Who scored away to Parma in two different millennia?’ The question belonging to any worthwile Parma-Juve pub quiz! The answer is, of course, Alessio Tacchinardi. Both efforts were crucial as well:
His first strike at the Tardini came in 1998, pulling a goal back for the visitors in their second-half comeback to draw 2-2. The Bianconeri stalwart then repeated the feat in 2003, nodding home Pavel Nedved’s perfect cross to double Juve’s lead in an eventual 2-1 win.
Juventus’ most recent victory in Parma, back on 2 November 2013, saw Paul Pogba on the scoresheet. As the clock struck 77 minutes, the Frenchman was at hand to follow up after Fabio Quagliarella rattled the crossbar and finish with aplomb.
Donning the golden jersey, ‘Brazzo’ put the Bianconeri in front after just three minutes of their first match of 2010.
The game played on 6 January kept up the tradition of Juventus playing in the first month of the calendar year away to Parma, which has happened six times in total.
Another former Parma player to then pull on the black and white stripes of Juventus, Marco Di Vaio is the only Bianconero to have scored in consecutive years at the Tardini, doing so in February 2003 and April 2004.
With the Parma shirt, Sebastian Giovinco scored the very first opposition goal in a Serie A match at Allianz Stadium. His 15 goals during the 2011-12 season paved the way for a return to Juventus, with whom he spent the next three years.
Fabrizio Ravanelli’s diving header on 8 January 1995 is arguably the most beautiful goal ever scored by a Juventus player away to Parma. What’s more, it is undoubtedly the most important, as it enabled the Bianconeri to overtake their hosts and main title rivals at the top of the table – the undisputed turning point in Juve’s 1994-95 Scudetto triumph and the first under Marcello Lippi.
