Parma, 20 April 2021 – Ahead of tomorrow’s trip to face Juventus in Turin, our latest Crociati History column looks back to when we picked up our very first point away to the Old Lady.

Indeed, as we wait for Juventus vs. Parma to kick off at 20:45 CEST on Wednesday 21 April at the Allianz Stadium, we’re going to recall what happened on Sunday 3 January 1993, when the two teams played out a 2-2 draw at the Stadio Delle Alpi.

That day, we deservedly took the lead in the 41st minute through an own goal.

Up to that point, we were the side that had created the better opportunities in attack.

The player who unluckily diverted the ball past his own goalkeeper was the German centre-back Jurgen Kohler.

The 1990 World Cup-winner initially got his head to Georges Grun’s ball into the box. It then bounced off Moreno Torricelli, landed back on Kohler’s head and ended up out of the reach of Angelo Peruzzi (0-1).

The hosts drew level in the 52nd minute, when Roberto Baggio acrobatically fired home on the volley following Pierluigi Casiraghi’s knockdown (1-1).

Parma then regained the lead 20 minutes later.

With 72 minutes on the clock, Fausto Pizzi whipped in a dangerous corner.

Stefano Cuoghi flicked it on in the six-yard box, and there was Sandro Melli to convert from a couple of yards out (1-2).

Juventus equalised for a second time after 84 minutes, with Gianluca Vialli finishing off Roberto Baggio’s assist (2-2).
