Donadoni: We must be at our best

By Football News



Parma coach Roberto Donadoni knows his team will need to be at their best if they are to defeat Juventus this weekend.

Parma will welcome the visit of the Seria A leaders and Donadoni feels that, despite Juve's 2-1 loss to Sampdoria last week, it will not make the challenge of playing Antonio Conte's men any easier.

"We have to deal with them no matter what their result was last time," he told reporters.

"It doesn't really matter what happened last Sunday against Sampdoria. We have to be at our best whatever has happened. They are a great side."

Parma go into the match with Juve on a high following a strong 2-1 home win against Palermo.

"It was a very important win for us," said the 49-year-old.

"We played against a team that caused us some difficulty, but we won because we took our chances.

"I cannot really define what went so right for us, perhaps we were a bit lucky."
