    Time:90'
    • Parma
    • Juventus
    • 90+4' The final whistle goes, and Juve's European hopes are finished! Parma are now assured of their place in the top flight next season.
    • 90+3' Juve again can't make good use of a corner, and that is just about that.
    • 90+2' Melo charges forward and has another pot shot which deflects up off Lucarelli's boot, and Mirante has to tip it over the bar!
    • 90+1' Toni leaps highest to meet Grosso's chipped cross and heads inches wide of the target! Mirante was caught flat-footed there, but TOni spurns his one and only opportunity of the afternoon!
    • 90' We are in the final minute of the allotted 90. The fourth official indicates three added minutes at the end.
    • 88' Giovinco tries a nifty backheel to a team-mate inside the area, but he is surrounded by Juve players and the move breaks down.
    • 86' Parma substitution: Nwankwo Obiora replaces Morrone.
    • 85' Candreva hares to the byline after beating the Juve defenders with a heavy touch, but it runs out of play.
    • 84' Salihamidzic goes into the referee's book for a cynical trip on Modesto.
    • 83' The belief appears to be draining out of the Bianconeri players as the clock ticks down on their disappointing season. Still, let's hope they still make an effort against Napoli on the final day.
    • 82' Reader cassardavid has some strong words for the Juve hierarchy: "IF WE DONT GET GIOVINCO BACK THEN THE JUVE BOARD SHOULD­ GO SHOOT THEMSELVES!!! oh and btw, the commentator guy­ said, as regards giovinco's goal, that buffon had­ no chance. well, to be honest, it wasnt as if he was­ trying to keep it out. He dont got desire no more. Sell­ him."
    • 80' Giovinco pings a lovely ball across to Candreva, who beats his marker with his first touch and drills a strike into the side netting!
    • 80' Angelo puts in a cross from the right but it is easily dealt with.
    • 78' Angelo leads the charge out of defence for Parma and is brought down by Traore.
    • 77' Parma substitution: Defender Angelo replaces midfielder Valiani. Colomba looking to shut up shop now.
    • 76' Toni handles the ball as he tries to take it on his chest. That might be his first contribution to the match.
    • 74' Juve beginning to force the issue again, but they are still struggling to find a way in behind Parma's well-drilled back line.
    • 72' Michael is not happy to see Giovinco playing so well against his former club: "what is martinez? over £10m for that??!!! and then juve­ let go of giovinco?? great choice juve!!"
    • 71' Modesto plays the give-and-go with Giovinco, but the return pass is blocked. All of a sudden there is a spring in the home side's step as they are on course to complete the league double over Juventus.
    • 70' Parma have been visibly lifted by that goal, and are now taking the game to Juventus.
    • 68' Well, that goal looks as though it will end Juve's hopes of European qualification. Roma are still winning 1-0, a victory which would put them six points clear of the Bianconeri.
    • 66' Juventus substitution: Luca Toni replaces Martinez.
    • 65' That is Giovinco's seventh league goal of the season. Three of them have come against Juventus.
    • 64' GOAL!! Giovinco has scored against his old club again! The little maestro cuts inside, rides a tackle and leathers a strike from 20 yards right into the far top corner! Buffon had no chance!
    • 63' The conrer comes to nothing and Parma can break. Giovinco skips forward, turns inside and is ruthlessly barged over by Melo! Play on says the referee.
    • 62' The ball bounces awkwardly across the Parma box and Martinez's close-range effort at the near post is blocked by Mirante! Corner to Juve...
    • 61' Pepe's ball into the box is headed down and Del Piero lashes his strike into the crowd.
    • 60' Parma are retreating deeper and deeper as Juve press for the opener. Melo keeps things moving for the visitors with a bit of skill in midfield.
    • 59' Juve can't make anything from the set piece, and Parma can clear their lines.
    • 58' Great curling effort from Del Piero that Mirante has to push away for a corner! Good shot, good save.
    • 57' Del Piero turns neatly past Lucarelli, who barges the forward over and concedes a free-kick in a dangerous area. Del Piero will fancy taking the shot on from here...
    • 56' Juve have been the better side since the break. Can they make this spell count by opening the scoring?
    • 55' Matri is slipped through ad finishes past Mirante... but the flag was already up for offside.
    • 54' Traore already making his presence felt, and his persistence wins Juve a corner. Parma win a free-kick after a foul on the keeper.
    • 53' Juventus substitution: Armand Traore replaces Giandonato.
    • 51' Lucarelli makes a big fuss about being impeded by Matri, and the referee gives in to his protests and gives a free-kick. Not much in that, to be honest.
    • 50' Bright start to the half, with both sides taking their turn to have decent possession.
    • 48' Buffon punches a cross away meekly but Giovinco can only head over the bar. Had it been another player, rather than the smallest man on the pitch, it might have been a different story.
    • 47' Roma are curently winning 1-0 at Catania, so anything less than a win would end Juve's hopes of qualifying for next season's Europa League. Simone Loria has got the goal for the Giallorossi.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+1' Half-time is called, and it's all square. Neither side deserves to be losing, or winning for that matter!
    • 45' Giovinco plays a square pass toBojinov inside the box, but the ball runs behind the Bulgarian. These two just haven't quite clicked this afternoon.
    • 44' Barzagli heads a cross behind for a corner, but the flag was already up for offside against Bojinov.
    • 43' Giovinco floats his delievery to the far post, but Zaccardo times his jump poorly and can only head out for a goal kick.
    • 42' Motta goes into the referee's book for pulling Modesto back after being beaten out wide.
    • 41' Good defending from Paletta, who stays strong as he gets in between Matri and Del Piero's through ball and lets the ball run to Mirante.
    • 40' The corner is played short before Martinez heads the eventual cross over the bar.
    • 39' Felipe Melo has a pop from range, and it's a cracking strike which Mirante has to tip over the bar!
    • 38' Dzemaili is the first player to be booked for a late foul on Pepe.
    • 37' Juve beginning to get pinned back int heir half more and more. The back line is holding firm though, the home side are struggling to get in behind.
    • 35' Giovinco, you may remember, scored twice against Juve in Parma's 4-1 win in Turin back in January, a match which saw Fabio Quagliarella injured after just six minutes. He hasn't played since, and Juve's season was downhill from there. Match report: Parma humble 10-man Juve
    • 34' Good cross into the Juve box, laid off by Modesto for Giovinco to strike... Blocked and cleared! Decent sight of goal for the little maestro.
    • 33' Del Piero is absolutely clobbered by Lucarelli, who charges into the Juve forward and barges him over. The referee gives the free-kick, but keeps cards in pocket.
    • 32' The homes side have really come to the fore over the last 10 minutes or so. Juve with plenty of defending to do, although Buffon has barely been tested.
    • 31' Juve repel the corner but Parma maintain possession and keep the pressure on.
    • 30' Martinez handballs out on the wing, and Parma send several men forward for Giovinco's free-kick, which is glanced behind for a corner.
    • 28' Slick move forward by Parma, but it is ended abruptly as Giovinco strays offside after Valiani chips a ball over the top to him.
    • 26' Bojinov penalised for handball as he brings the ball under his control with two defender on his tail.
    • 25' Jorge Martinez chases a long diagonal ball over the top, but his only reward for a lung-busting run is a collision with the advertising hoarding!
    • 23' But now Parma can hit them on the counter and Bojinov's cross is put behind for a corner. The set piece is headed clear and Francisco Valiani's half-volleyed effort from range flies well wide.
    • 22' Good spell for Juve at the moment. They are playing their way through the midfield with ease.
    • 21' Reader crosscut wants to see wholesale changes at Juventus following another disappointing campaign for the BNianconeri: "ok so it was a crappy season , more like crappy 5­ seasons...this time pls bring in a WORLD CLASS STRIKER­ !! dont go cheap this time.....and for the love of god­ mr del neri hasnt got the sparkle nor the excitement to­ fire up juventus to a high level... bring in a younger­ coach, someone from inside the juventus­ administration...and one more thing getting rid of mr­ blanc"
    • 20' Juve play it short and the cross comes in from the right... Glanced wide with a header from Matri! Mirante watches it roll harmlessly wide.
    • 19' Gabriel Paletta jumps for a header with Matri and nuts the Juve striker in the back of the head! Free-kick to Juve.
    • 17' Blerim Dzemaili slips a ball into the feet of Giovinco... Buffon palms away the shot but Dzemaili on the follow-up... Blocked en route to goal! It's all happening now!
    • 15' Del Piero is played through into the box and goes down under Cristian Zaccardo's chalenge, but the referee waves play on! It was a marvellous last-ditch tackle. Zaccardo had to time that perfectly.
    • 14' Juve being forced to defend and try and hit Parma on the break at the moment. Fabio Grosso is offering a constant outlet down the left.
    • 13' There is still live coverage of one more Serie A game to come today, and it's a beauty - Napoli v Inter kicks off at 19:45 this evening.
    • 11' Great run down the left from Manuel Giandonato, who skips over a tackle before crossing to Matri, who can't keep his first-time shot down.
    • 10' Giovonco brings down a long ball forward, but he had strayed offside.
    • 9' Juve's first corner is curled in by Del Piero and caught comfortably by Antonio Mirante.
    • 8' A nice, open feel to this game in the first few minutes. Francesco Modesto does well to control and turn close to the left-hand touchline, but his lay-off does not lead to a chance.
    • 6' The corner is bent in towards the near post for Bojinov, who dummies over the ball and Gigi Buffon has to react quickly to claw it away just as it was crossing the line! Bojinov claims it went over, but replays don't back up his claim.
    • 5' Giovinco hoists in a high curling cross that Marco Motta has to head behind for a corner.
    • 4' Muichael says: "im glad krasic is suspended for this one, hes been­ awful in thses past few games". True, but he's one of main reasons to watch Serie A. This season at least.
    • 3' Giorgio Chiellini attacks Del Piero's ball into the box, but Parma clear their lines.
    • 2' Juve defend the second set piece well and counter at pace. Matri is broguht down on the right wing and Juve have an early set piece in a good position.
    • 1' Parma win the game's first corner. The delivery is headed behind for another by Andrea Barzagli.
    • 1' Juve kick off to get this show on the road!
    • 13:57 The teams are out on the field now. We'll be underway shortly...
    • 13:55 You can share your thoughts and views throughout the match, either in the comments box below or by contacting me on Twitter (@tony_mabert). Reader Toby says he would rather Juve threw this match: "So we pretty much need to lose this one as i cant stand­ the humiliation of Europa again." Agree or disagree? Follow me on Twitter
    • 13:50 For Parma, former Juve forward Sebastian Giovinco partners Valeri Bojinov in attack. Veteran striker Hernan Crespo is not in the squad.
    • 13:45 Juventus winger Milos Krasic misses out the penultimate match of the season, so Manuel Giandonato makes on his second league appearnace of the season on the right flank. Alessandro Matri, who has scored eight goals in 14 games since joining from Cagliari in January, starts up front alongside namesake Del Piero.
    • 13:40 Juve make the short journey to Parma hoping to keep their European hopes alive. The Bianconeri are currently three points off sixth place, which would see them qualify for the Europa League next season. Roma, who kick off at Catania at the same time, currently hold that position. Parma are all but safe, needing only a point to confirm their place in the top flight. Serie A table
