Welcome back to our routinely created segment where I, @Giannotti151 will bring out my crystal ball and predict how each starter will do along with the result of the match. You can keep up with all my predictions here on bianconerizone.com and @BianconeriZone on Twitter.
Let us know what you predict and then compare after the match’s completion.
Buffon 6 - SuperGigi gets an obvious start against a what looks to be a lesser opponent. He can still command his box and looked as sharp as ever against Barcelona the other week. Look for this to continue against Parma.
Danilo 6 - deputizing Juan Cuadrado finally happened! It’s Danilo so don’t expect any good crosses but other than that he will be solid as a rock.
De Ligt 7 - I read a crazy stat that since De Ligt has come back, Juventus win the ball back in the opponents half 8 more times per game than without him. Not only is he a physical phenomenon but he also orchestrates a very good back line. This will continue against Parma
Bonucci 6 - the experienced centre back can no longer defend in 1 on 1 situations. One can only hope Gervinho doesn’t get an opportunity on this. But as always, with the ball he’ll be very good
Alex Sandro 6 - I fear every time Alex Sandro plays as a LCB and the ball is on the other side of the field about to be put in the box. But against Parma he won’t have to deal with much and will have a rather anonymous game.
McKennie 6 - in his proper position in a double pivot, ‘Big Mac’ will have a strong game and won’t have to worry about making the final ball count.
Bentancur 6.5 - if he’s asked to play in the regista role as a double pivot he will have a strong game. Be strong and tidy on the ball, that’s all he needs to do.
Chiesa 6.5 - the attack minded wing back will have another strong outing creating the only goal in the game.
Kulusevski 6 - will have a decent game considering he has been in pretty poor form. Déjàn will pick up the ball in threatening areas and drive possession for Juve.
Morata 6.5 - He will atone for his gaff against Atalanta with a splendidly taken goal against Parma. When he has a full head of steam driving at defenders with the ball, look out.
Ronaldo 6 - his worst game in black and white just happened. I don’t think it will get any worse than that, so it can only go up from here.
Pirlo 6 - not many choices in attack as Dybala will be out for the game. I think he will still wait to make changes than be proactive.
Final Score: Parma 0-1 Juventus
