Juventus host an improving Parma tomorrow aiming to build on midweek momentum and increase their lead at the top of Serie A.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men stretched their aantage at the top of the table to three points last weekend.
Juve recovered from defeat to Genoa with a comfortable victory against Empoli while Roma slipped up at Napoli.
The defending champions carried that form into the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday as they came from behind to beat Olympiacos 3-2 and strengthen their hopes of qualification for the last 16.

But attention returns to domestic action this weekend with Parma standing between Juventus and a third straight victory in all competitions.
Roberto Donadoni’s Parma will be confident themselves, however, having halted a run of six successive defeats with an impressive win against Inter last time out to ease the pressure on him amid rumours over his future.
Allegri will have to do without Kwadwo Asamoah after the midfielder aggravated a knee injury on Tuesday.
But, as has been a recurring theme this season, Allegri’s biggest selection decision concerns whether to pair Alvaro Morata or Fernando Llorente alongside Carlos Tevez in attack.
