Parma-Juve, Like a DerbyBy: Francesco | November 8th, 2007
As central defender Massimo Paci said today in a press conference, walking around the city of Parma you get the atmosphere of a derby. Parma-Juventus has always been a derby like encounter, as both sides have provided such great games throughout the years. This “derby” was at it’s high point in the 90’s when Parma beat Juventus to win the 1995 UEFA Cup. After the jump we’ll go through some stats.
Probably the only Juventus player who will be applauded at the Tardini on Sunday will be the man in the picture, Gianluigi Buffon. After starring for Parma from 1995-2001, he went on to Juventus for a record setting fee for a goalkeeper. Although he was born in Tuscany, he was brought through the Parma youth system and made his debut as a 17 year old. He is still loved by the Gialloblu’ fans.
Of course you also know that Claudio Ranieri coached Parma for the second half of last season, guiding the Gialloblu’ to a miraculous salvation.
And how about this little fun fact. In the mid 90’s, Juventus wanted to sell Dino Baggio to Parma. Baggio refused, and Juventus then were all ready to sell a young Alessandro Del Piero to the Gialloblu’. At the last minute, Baggio had a change of heart and accepted the transfer, and therefore Del Piero stayed at Juve and became a Juventus legend.
