What a whirlwind 3 days. A stinker against Atalanta, the Super League announcement, and its apparent fallout. As always we need the win.
Buffon 6.5 - we are always much better when SuperGigi is net and against Parma it will be no different. His communication will be on point as usual and will keep the team organized.
Danilo 6 - look for the Brazilian to pop up in the middle for support to playing out. Danilo will be defensively solid.
Bonucci 5.5 - he’s back in the XI and I think he will struggle with the pace of play. He will struggle with his on-the-ball play as well.
De Ligt 7 - a top 2 player at the club all year. The man’s solid and he will continue his top defensive form.
Alex Sandro 4.5 - a new LB is required at the club.
Cuadrado 5.5 - he’s been quite good this year. I think he won’t be as effective against Parma due to fatigue after he ran a marathon last match.
Arthur 6 - a massive game for Arthur individually. He needs to dominate games like these and I think he’ll be ‘okay’.
Rabiot 5.5 - the Frenchman just doesn’t carry the X factor everyone thought he had. He’s a decent combative midfielder that covers a lot of ground. Against Parma, Rabiot will tackle well but will not provide any creativity.
McKennie 6 - unfortunately for Big Mac, he has been hampered by a hip injury. When fully fit he is a catalyst. Against Parma, he will create havoc up front but won’t last the 90 mins.
Dybala 5.5 - lost all hope for the guy. Doesn’t fit the 4-4-2. Doesn’t fit with Ronaldo. Feel bad for the guy who genuinely loves Juventus. He Will try his best to create but not much will happen.
Ronaldo 6.5 - N/A
Pirlo 5 - I hate his formation. Nothing else to add.
Juventus 1-0 Parma
