Line-ups: Parma-Juventus

Juventus have Mirko Vucinic and Alessandro Matri in their 3-5-2 line-up against Sebastian Giovinco’s Parma this afternoon.

The Serie A game was originally snowed off in January, but kicks off at the Stadio Tardini at 17.30 UK time.

The Bianconeri have apparently decided to mirror Parma’s tactics, so are going for a 3-5-2 with Marcelo Estigarribia and Stephan Lichtsteiner out wide and front two Matri and Vucinic.

Simone Pepe and Luca Marrone are absent due to injuries, but Fabio Quagliarella is on the bench after he was widely expected to start.

Parma have Giovinco leading the way, who is a Juventus youth product and still half-owned by the Turin giants.

The ‘Atomic Ant’ partners Sergio Floccari, but Gabriel Paletta and Daniele Galloppa are late additions to the treatment table.

Stefano Ferrario gets the nod in defence ahead of Fabiano Santacroce.

Parma: Pavarini; Zaccardo, Ferrario, Lucarelli; Biabiany, Morrone, Mariga, Valiani, Modesto; Giovinco, Floccari

Parma bench: Mirante, Jonathan, Gobbi, Okaka, Palladino, Musacci, Santacroce

Juventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Estigarribia; Matri, Vucinic

Juventus bench: Storari, Caceres, Del Piero, Quagliarella, Padoin, Borriello, Giaccherini
