Line-ups: Del Piero leads new Juve

Alessandro Del Piero and Alessandro Matri lead Juventus out into their new stadium to face Parma in the lunchtime kick-off.

The first official match at the Juventus Stadium begins at 11.30 UK time and Antonio Conte has a point to prove in front of a sold out crowd.

The Coach picks his former teammate and current captain Del Piero in the revolutionary 4-2-4 system, joined by Simone Pepe, Matri and Emanuele Giaccherini.

Mirko Vucinic, Arturo Vidal and Milos Krasic are on the bench, as they are not 100 per cent fit, while Fabio Quagliarella, Marcelo Estigarribia, Fabio Grosso and Vincenzo Iaquinta are not even in the squad.

Parma have won their last three Serie A meetings with Juventus, home and away, so Franco Colomba will be looking for another upset.

Ex-Juve starlet Sebastian Giovinco starts just behind former AZ Alkmaar striker Graziano Pellè, as Hernan Crespo is on the bench.

Massimo Gobbi, Raffaele Palladino, Jaime Valdes, Danilo Pereira and Rafael Marques are all unavailable for selection.

Juventus: Buffon; Lichtsteiner, Barzagli, Chiellini, De Ceglie; Marchisio, Pirlo; Pepe, Del Piero, Matri, Giaccherini

Juventus bench: Storari, Bonucci, Toni, Vidal, Krasic, Elia, Vucinic

Parma: Mirante; Zaccardo, Paletta, A Lucarelli, Rubin; Valiani, Morrone, Galloppa, Modesto; Giovinco; Pellè

Parma bench: Pavarini, Ze Eduardo, Feltscher, Blasi, Floccari, Crespo, Biabiany
