Claudio Marchisio, Juventus
The two teams got their campaigns underway last season in the same fashion, as Parma became the first Serie A team to play a competitive match in the new stadium, while Simone Pepe, Arturo Vidal, Stephan Lichsteiner and Claudio Marchisio found the back of the net.
The 4-1 drilling of the Ducali, in front of a sellout crowd, arguably set the tone for the Bianconeri’s season as they went on to remain undefeated a win the Scudetto title.
“As luck always plays a key role in football, we hope to start this championship as we did in the last year” stated Juventus’ sporting director Giuseppe Marotta.
Serie A will start on the weekend of August 25/26 and the three-year wait of the return of the Derby delle Mole against Torino will take place on Week 15.
