The Bianconeri are unbeaten in 21 rounds and running away with the Scudetto as well as qualifying for the Europa League quarter-finals.

They are targeting a 15th consecutive home victory in Serie A and kept five clean sheets on the trot.

The Ducali are on a club record 17-game positive streak, but their last defeat in the League was against Juve at the Stadio Tardini on November 2.

There is more reshuffling required, as Andrea Barzagli, Angelo Ogbonna, Federico Peluso and Sebastian Giovinco are out of action.

Martin Caceres again starts in the back three with fatigue potentially a problem.

Tevez and Fernando Llorente are the first choice front two with Kwadwo Asamoah and Stephan Lichtsteiner on the flanks.

Antonio Cassano leads the Parma attack and continues to push hard for a place at the World Cup, having found a second wind in his career under Roberto Donadoni.

FantAntonio has reason to feel confident tonight, as he has put seven goals past Juventus, and is partnered by ex-Bianconeri centre-forward Amauri.

Walter Gargano, Gianni Munari and Nicola Pozzi are unavailable for the visitors, though Marco Marchionni returns from suspension to face his former club.
