The Italian champions should have enough firepower to get among the goals once more when they travel to newly promoted Parma on Saturday evening

Cristiano Ronaldo will hope that his wait for a first Juventus goal comes to an end this weekend as the champions visit Parma.

Juve travel to Stadio Ennio Tardini aiming for their third successive win after a 3-2 win at Chievo in their first match before seeing off Lazio 2-0 in their first home match of the campaign last weekend.

Parma, meanwhile, are looking for their first win this season having recorded a draw at home to Udinese before losing 1-0 at SPAL last Sunday.

Latest odds

Having recorded three straight promotions to return to the top flight, hosting the champions is the game that will make Parma feel they are back at the highest level.

They actually beat Juventus 1-0 in their last meeting, back in April 2015, and William Hill offer them at 18/1 (19.00) to claim three points on Saturday. The visitors are priced at just 1/7 (1.14) with the draw available at 13/2 (7.50).

Team news

Max Allegri has no major injury concerns ahead of the trip to Parma, with Ronaldo in line to start his third successive game.

Paulo Dybala was surprisingly left out of the starting eleven against Lazio and may face competition for a place in the team from Mario Mandzukic who netted against the Rome outfit.

Preview

Juve have shown their firepower in their opening two matches with their five goals coming from five different sources, meaning the Italian champions are far from reliant on Ronaldo.

Allegri's side are offered at just 3/10 (1.30) to score over 1.5 goals on Saturday and that price gives an indication of how likely we are to see the visitors get amongst the goals.

Parma will be motivated on what is a special occasion for them, yet the smart money must surely go the champions to spoil the party.

Tips and predictions

Juve can be backed at 10/11 (1.91) to score in both halves which looks like an excellent angle as this has paid out in both of their games so far in Serie A, making it a shrewd option for their clash this weekend.
