Bottom of the table and bankrupt but Parma sure are going out with a bang. After last weekends draw away to Inter and Wednesday nights triumph at home to Udinese, tonight saw Parma cause the biggest upset of the season as the champions rolled into town.
Parma were again missing captain Alessandro Lucarelli who sat out his final game of his three match ban. As for Max Allegri he rang the changes as Carlos Tevez and Andrea Barzagli sat out with minor injuries along with Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Gianluigi Buffon, Kwadwo Asamoah, Romulo and Martin Caceres.
The Ennio Tardini was packed for this old rivalry and the home side started the brighter as they looked to build on their recent good form, although it would be Antonio Mirante who would be called into action first as he streched to deny Roberto Pereyra.
Ishak Belfodil was unlucky not to open his account for the season as he saw his effort beat Marco Storari as it licked the paint as it flew over the bar.
Arturo Vidal almost opened the scoring on the half hour mark as he found himself unmarked at the back post, heading a Claudio Marchisio freekick towards goal only to be superbly denied by Mirante's left boot.
As the half drew to a close Mirante was at it again this time kepping out a Kingslay Coman effort at his near post.
Parma again started the second half brightly, holding Juventus to long distance drives firstly Marchisio dragged his 20 yard effort wide follewed by Coman who blasted high and wide keeping the score level.
The Tardini would explode with joy on the hour mark as Ishak Belfodil burst down the right, squaring for Jose Mauri to place the ball in the top corner from the edge of the box, it was a special goal from a special young player.
With just ten minutes left on the clock, the Parma faithful would be on their feet again as Jose Mauri was replaced by Andi Lila, Mauri ran the show in the middle of the park today, Parma may not be in Serie A next season but this kid surly will be.
It was a mammoth effort from Donadoni's men as players were falling all over the park with cramp. Juventus continued to pour forward as time was running out but failed to really create a true goalscoring chance. However Parma and Donadoni held on for a truely historic win for The Ducali.
