    Time:90'
    • Juventus
    • Parma
    • 90+3' The final whistle goes, and not soon enough for Juve. What an awful start to the year for them. Remember, live coverage of Cagliari v Milan (14:00) and Inter v Napoli (19:45) is still to come today.
    • 90+2' GOAL!! It's FOUR! Palladino draws an excellent save from Storari, but Valiani is on hand to tee the substitute up for another go and this time he scores!
    • 90+1' Aquilani is fortunate not to be booked for a petulant trip on Morrone.
    • 89' There will be two minutes of added time.
    • 88' Calvo dives in at the far post to meet Valiani's cross, but can't steer it on target!
    • 87' Parma substitution: Toni Calvo replaces Giovinco.
    • 86' Parma are slowing the tempo down now as they look to close out this win. OK, they are a man up on Juve, and have been for much of this game, but Pasquale Marino must be wondering why they can't play like this more often.
    • 84' Zaccardo's header rebounds off a defender and comes back to Giovinco... blazed well wide and into the crowd!
    • 83' Zaccardo leads a Parma break. He feeds Candreva who tries for a low cross to Palladino, but will have to make do with a corner.
    • 80' Pepe goes on a weaving run by cutting in from the left and beating two men before the ball rolls through to the keeper. Guess he's OK then!
    • 78' More potential bad news for Juve, as Pepe rolls around on the ground. The Italy international struggles to his feet. Let's see how his fares over the next few minutes.
    • 77' For once in this half Juve make light work of clearing a Parma corner.
    • 76' Valiani is played in to the byline by Giovinco. The winger pulls the ball back to Candreva, whose shot is deflected behind for a corner.
    • 75' Aquilani makes a great run forward and is brought down on the edge of the D as he slips a ball through to Amauri. The striker didn;t read the pass, and the referee didn;t give a free-kick. It looks like it's going to be one of those days for Juve.
    • 73' Candreva twists and turns inside the box before hitting a low strike, but it's an easy block for Storari.
    • 72' Palladino has a shot from the edge of the Juve box blocked.
    • 70' Krasic goes for another surge into the box and is only denied by a well-timed foot in from Zaccardo.
    • 69' Amauri is dispossessed on the edge of the box again and his frustration is visible.
    • 68' Sissoko has certainly made an impact since coming off the bench. He's allowed Juve to commit more to the attack.
    • 67' Amauri rises to meet a long ball from Grosso with a header but can't get a touch. It' been the usual frustrating performance from the Brazilian.
    • 65' Parma substitution: Raffaele Palladino replaces Crespo.
    • 64' Krasic roves forward with a jinking run and fires a low drive just wide of the far post! What a game this is turning out to be.
    • 63' That's Hernan Crespo's seventh league goal of the season. This is already his biggest haul for a campaign since 2006-07. Still got it!
    • 62' GOAL!! Crespo sends Storari the wrong way, and Parma regain their two-goal lead! Incredible stuff!
    • 61' PENALTY!! Crespo turns back on himself in the area and Chiellini brings him down! Crespo will take the spot-kick himself...
    • 61' Nicola Legrottaglie's first goal of the season has set up a cracking second half now.
    • 60' GOAL!! Juve pull on back! Pepe's corner is another good one and Legrottaglie rises unmarked to nod back across the keeper and in!
    • 59' It will be Pepe to strike... curled over the wall and off the post! Excellent strike from the substitute. Juve have a corner...
    • 58' Sweeping move forward from Juve. Amauri flicks the ball up and turns on the edge of the box... Paletta handles it! Just a booking for the Parma defender, which the Juve players aren't happy with at all! Still, thery have a dead ball in a very dangerous area...
    • 56' Juve substitution: Momo Sissoko replaces Sorensen.
    • 55' Dzemaili floats another weighted diagonal ball over the top foor Candreva, but it runs out of play.
    • 54' Legrottaglie heads it away but Juve struggle to clear. Parma have them boxed in.
    • 53' Parma have won themselves another corner. Candreva, another ex-Juve player, will send it in...
    • 52' Juve are all over the place at the moment. They have hardly been out of their own half since the restart.
    • 50' Wel,, Juve have it all to do now. Defeat here means that should Roma beat Catania later today then the Giallirossi will move above them in the table. Serie A table
    • 49' That's two goals for Giovinco against his old club!
    • 48' GOAL!! Valiani gets to the byline and dinks the ball across to Giovinco at the far post. The little magician swivels and hits a low finish into the far corner!
    • 47' Candreva burts into the area and latches on to a diagonal ball but goes down under the challenge of Grosso... NO PENALTY!! Once again referee de Marco waves play on! That looked a lot more convincing than Krasic's claim.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+4' Crespo heads Aquilani's delivery clear and Parma can break! As soon as the ball crosses the hlafway line, the referee blows for half-time! A very eventful and enjoyable first half. This is now a real test of Juve's title credentials.
    • 45+3' Pepe swings a dnagerous ball over and it is headed behind for a corner by Zaccardo. Parma clear the second set piece but Sorensen wins Juve one final free-kick.
    • 45+2' Zaccardo is booked for a nip at the calf of Pepe near the corner flag. Another Juve free-kick in a good position for a cross...
    • 45+1' Lovely slick touch from Amauri to pick out Krasic, but the Serb cant make it past the last man for Parma.
    • 45' There will be three minutes of added time.
    • 44' Mirante almost miscontrols a back pass with Amauri lurking, but manages to clear.
    • 43' Aquilani handles the ball as he tries to take a high ball on the run.
    • 42' Sebastian Giovinco's second goal of the season has put Parma ahead at a near perfect time.
    • 41' GOAL!! Parma make the breakthrough!! Gobbi's header from Zaccardo's cross is saved brilliantly by Storari, but the rebound falls to Giovinco who fires into the roof of the net!
    • 38' Good link-up from Krasic and Amauri but the latter is denied by a good tackle on the edge of the box.
    • 37' Storari was having his shoulder checked out by a physio while the free-kick was being taken. The last thing Juve need is to lose their reserve keeper too, with Buffon already sidelined for the whole season so far.
    • 36' Pepe wins a free-kick for Juve in a good position. Aquilani fires way over the bar.
    • 35' Krasic hasn't been greatly involved so far but, as you'd expect, every time he has the ball he is a threat.
    • 34' Sorensen gambols down the right before feeding Marchiosi inside. The midfielder goes for a strike from range but it lacks power and accuracy.
    • 33' Grosso floats a ball forward for Amauri, but the forward is beaten in the air.
    • 31' Juventus substitution: Simone Pepe replaces Del Piero in a tactical switch. Shame. Juve have lost Quagliarella, Melo and now Del Piero with barely an half an hour on the clock.
    • 30' Dzemaili has plenty of time to line up a strike from 25 yards... beaten away by the diving Storari! It dipped kindly for the keeper, but still a decent stop.
    • 29' Sorensen is not fooled by Gobbi's trickery and stops the full-back in his tracks.
    • 28' The game has really opened up since Melo was sent off. We can't be too far off the opening goal.
    • 27' Zaccardo bundles his way forward down the right but fouls Del Piero as he tries to pass him.
    • 26' Valiani cuts inside from the left past Grosso and balloons his shot high into the crowd!
    • 25' Amauri hussles and bustles before laying the ball back for Aquilani to drill a low strike from distance that flies wide of the target.
    • 24' GOAL!! NO... DISALLOWED!! Del Piero's free-kick is fumbled by Mirante, who manages to get his hands to it right on the line. Chiellini rushes in and kicks it out of his hands into the net, but the officials were wise to his game!
    • 23' Paletta fould Del Piero on the left wing. Useful free-kick to Juve...
    • 22' The ball comes back to Valiani on the edge of the box... the dipping half-volley drops well short of the target and it's an easy collect for Storari.
    • 21' Dzemaili picks out Crespo with a great diagonal ball. The Argentine veteran lacks support, but holds the ball up well.
    • 20' Giovinco pops up on the right and tries a one-two with Valiani, but Grosso and Chiellini read it well.
    • 18' Can Parma make the most of this opportunity? They need a win to open up a seven-point gap over their relegation rivals before they all play later today.
    • 17' MELO SENT OFF!! The Brazilian midfielder goes down tussling with Paci and sticks a boot right into the Parma man's face! There is absolutely no defence for that. Right in front of the referee too. Juve down to 10 with less than 20 minutes played!
    • 16' Parma's persistence wins them a corner. The ball comes out to Zaccardo who gets his half-volley all wrong.
    • 15' Crespo reaches a ball at the byline and pulls it back into the box. Giovinco works it across to Candreva who miscues his strike completely and it loops into the air!
    • 14' Grosso fouls former Juve midfielder Candreva by the halfway line. Parma struggling to break through.
    • 13' Replays show Krasic was looking for contact, and went to ground a fraction too early. If he had kept on running he either would have drawn the foul or dribbled his way through. There's a moral to this story...
    • 12' This time the free-kick is launched into the box. Headed clear but now Krasic surges into the box and goes down... NO PENALTY!! There didn't look to be much contact on the Serb winger, who has previous when it comes to simulation.
    • 11' Gobbi is penalised for handball. Juve try to take the free-kick from deep on the right quickly but the referee stops them.
    • 10' Giovinco and Sorensen collide again, but this time it's the Juve man who wins through. The defender is nearly a foot taller than the diminutive Giovinco!
    • 9' Crespo chases a ball down the right channel from Valiani, but he's offside.
    • 8' Giovinco jinks past Sorensen and the little winger wins a free-kick from the Danish full-back. Now Candreva is bundled over on the other flank by Melo.
    • 7' Candreva goes down on the edge of the Juve box, but the referee plays on and Juve come forward. Quite a physical start to this game.
    • 6' Amauri is yet to score in six league appearances so far this season. Finally play resumes.
    • 5' Juventus substitution: Amauri replaces Quagliarella, who has his head in his hands as he is carried off.
    • 4' Parma defender Massimo Paci caught Quagliarella right on the shin. It was pretty innocuous, no intent from the palyer, but Quagliarella is being stretchered off.
    • 3' Fabio Grosso does well to keep the ball in play on the left and keep a Juve attack going. Quagliarella is fouled by Paci and looks in pain.
    • 2' Parma hog the ball for the first minute or so, but are unable to make any in-roads into the Juve half.
    • 1' Juve kick-off and we're underway!
    • 12:35 Referee Andrea de Marco blows his whistle, and we will have a moment's silence before kick-off...
    • 12:30 The teams are lining up in the tunnel now, ready to walk out on to the pitch. Plenty of hugs and kisses from Alessandro del Piero for his opponents.
    • 12:25 JUVENTUS: Storari; Sorensen, Chiellini, Legrottaglie, Grosso; Krasic, Felipe Melo, Aquilani, Marchisio; Del Piero, Quagliarella /// PARMA: Mirante; Zaccardo, Paci, Paletta, Gobbi; Candreva, Dzemaili, Morrone; Valiani, Crespo, Giovinco.
    • 12:20 TOP SCORERS: Juventus - Fabio Quagliarella (9), Parma - Hernan Crespo (6). Both men start today.
    • 12:15 Juventus have collected more points in away matches (16) than at home (15) this season. (Infostrada)
    • 12:10 It's a full card of matches today in Italy, and later on we'll also be bringing you live coverage of leaders Milan as they travel to Cagliari (14:00) and Leonardo's first game in charge of champions Internazionale at home to high-flying Napoli (19:45).
    • 12:05 The Old Lady, unbeaten in their last 13 league games, can move up to second in the table with a win this lunchtime on the feast of Epiphany ahead of the rest of the day's fixtures. Pasquale Marino's Parma, on the other hand, arrive in Turin on the back of just one win in their last five games, and are a little too close to the relegation zone for comfort. Serie A table
    • 12:00 Ciao and welcome to Eurosport-Yahoo!'s live coverage of the first Serie A clash following Italy's winter break - Juventus v Parma!
