How to play a classic, old school football game
Football Italian is delighted to present the official rules for the classic, classic classic game ‘Parma vs Juventus’.
As part of the show, the two teams will battle it out on the pitch for a total of 4 hours and 40 minutes.
The game will be played in the historic Turin stadium, and will be broadcast on Sunday, July 24 at 16:00 GMT (GMT+00:00) on Canal+ (English language channel on Canal+, Canal+ app on Apple TV, Roku, Apple TV Classic, Chromecast, Xbox One, PlayStation VR, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PC).
In the last decade, Parma and Juventus have become synonymous with the classic football game.
In 2006, Juventus won the title after winning the UEFA Cup, and Parma finished as runners-up in Serie A. This is the last hurrah for the rivalry between the two sides, as Juventus will be playing in Turin Stadium for the last time in 2017.
The game will feature two teams, with the Bianconeri winning 3-2 on aggregate, in the first leg of the series on Sunday.
The Biancones started the game with a 4-0 victory in Turino on the opening day of the 2015/16 season.
Juve came into the match with a 3-0 advantage at the end of the first half, and a goal from Gianluigi Buffon.
The Bianconés managed to equalize twice, but a goal by Giorgio Chiellini sent Juventus into the second half, which was ruled out for offside.
Juventus were on the back foot throughout the second leg, however, with only the keeper, Marco Materazzi, making the difference.
The hosts took the lead in the 23rd minute through Stefano Okaka, who played a one-two with the ball, before crossing it to a streaking Materuzzi.
Buffon, who had just come off the bench, was the only Juventus player to come close to scoring, but it was too little too late.
The second half was a different story.
Buffons goal was cancelled out by the penalty kick, which came off a corner kick, and the ball was awarded to Parma, with a free kick to the far post.
This goal was a huge blow for the Biancolini side, who went on to win the match 4-1.
Parma are hoping to bring back the old school spirit of the old rivalry in 2017, as the teams will take to the field in Turinese Stadium for a final match on Sunday evening, July 25.
