Fabio Liverani welcomed Wylian Cyprien and Giuseppe Pezzella back from injury in their draw with AC Milan. Juraj Kucka, Alberto Grassi and Vincent Laurini joined Valentin Mihaila and Andrea Dini on the treatment table earlier this month and are still recovering.

Liverani is likely to field the same side that drew against Cagliari, with Roberto Inglese expected to lead the attack again.

Most of the previously injured players have started to return to fitness for Juventus, but Merih Demiral and Giorgio Chiellini remain on the sidelines. Midfielder Arthur picked up a knock to his right thigh against Atalanta and will not travel to Parma.

Parma vs Juventus Prediction

Ronaldo missed a penalty in their game against Atalanta after scoring four in the previous two games.

Juventus have struggled to create chances from open play in their last three games, and scoring goals against Parma could be an issue for them.

The hosts have also suffered from a lack of quality in the final third and we don't expect them to score against the reigning champions, with Wojciech Szczesny in fine form.

Juventus should emerge from this encounter as winners.

Prediction: Parma 0-2 Juventus
