Sebastian Giovinco and Amauri have swapped clubs and will play against each other on Saturday. Who won that transfer switch?
Juventus begins their quest for another Scudetto on Saturday, and if this summer's transfer business around Serie A is any indication, they should be heavy favorites to repeat. They'll be celebrating their 30th or 28th title, depending on who you ask, when they begin their season at home against Parma.
Like Juventus, Parma have done a lot of transfer business this summer. Unfortunately, their biggest bit of business was selling Sebastian Giovinco to the Old Lady. He'll probably make his first start for his new-old club against Parma. Lucio and Kwadwo Asamoah are also expected to make their debuts, while fellow new signing Mauricio Isla is injured. Juventus are also without Giorgio Chiellini, Martin Caceres, and Gianluigi Buffon, but should still be able to field a very strong side.
Parma have most of their first team available, but will not have Daniele Galloppa or Raffaele Palladino. New signing Amauri, a former Juventus player who isn't very popular with the supporters of the Bianconeri, could make his debut for Parma.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, 2:45 p.m. ET, 8:45 p.m. local
Venue: Juventus Arena, Turin, Italy
TV: beIN Sport (U.S.), ESPN (U.K.), RAI (Canada)
