Parma 2 - 2 Juventus
Carbone 34 (P), Di Vaio 77 (J), Gilardino 81 (P), Tudor 93 (J)
Igor Tudor bagged a last-gasp equaliser at the Tardini in a very entertaining four-goal thriller.
This has always been something of a grudge match, but it has been calmed in recent years as Gianluigi Buffon, Lilian Thuram, Marco Di Vaio and Manuele Blasi were facing their former clubs.
According to newspaper talk, Alberto Gilardino, Matteo Ferrari and Daniele Bonera will be repeating that journey from Parma to Turin in the summer.
Juventus again fielded a lone striker system with Gianluca Zambrotta in a more advanced role on the left wing.
The Bianconeri had an aggressive start, but Alessio Tacchinardi limped off after just 14 minutes to make way for Igor Tudor.
Zambrotta forced a tough save out of Sebastien Frey when he dribbled past two players and aimed his deflected drive at the bottom near corner. Pavel Nedved looked much improved from recent outings and his fierce effort from distance whistled past the post.
Soon after Tudor battled past several defenders and managed to cross in for the unmarked David Trezeguet, but the Frenchman ballooned it off target.
Parma were dangerous from a corner kick on the half-hour mark and it took a panicked Stephen Appiah goalline clearance to prevent someone pouncing on the loose ball.
There was chaos on 34 minutes as Enzo Maresca wanted a penalty for Castellini's trip, but as Parma poured forward on the counter-attack they took the lead moments later. Buffon parried Mark Bresciano's angled drive, but he could do nothing on Benito Carbone's diving header as Marco Marchionni chipped in a splendid cross.
This goal increased Parma's confidence and they called Buffon into another tricky save on Gilardino's solo effort.
Marcello Lippi made a tactical switch at half-time, introducing ex-Parma hitman Marco Di Vaio for fullback Gianluca Pessotto, therefore moving Zambrotta back to a defensive role.
But it was the Gialloblu who wasted a golden opportunity to double their lead when a cross squirmed away from Buffon and Bresciano incredibly blasted it wide of an open goal.
Juventus were playing with their defence practically in the centre-circle and it made Parma's counter-attacks all the more effective as on 55 minutes they rattled the crossbar with Bresciano's cross-cum-shot.
Fabrizio Miccoli also came on for a top-heavy Bianconeri line-up, but when Trezeguet sprung the offside trap on Nedved's splendid through ball he fired straight at Frey, then Bonera charged down Di Vaio's follow-up.
The second half was all Juventus and there were timid penalty appeals for Blasi's handling offence on Zambrotta's cross.
The Bianconeri eventually grabbed a deserved equaliser with a former Tardini hero. Trezeguet held up the ball for a simply blistering Di Vaio volley into the top corner.
Lippi's men kept on pushing and Trezeguet's header skimmed the target soon after.
But just as they were under the most pressure it was Parma that restored their lead. Gilardino sprung the offside trap and his angled drive struck Buffon only to loop up into the far corner of the empty net.
However, there was bad news for the Gialloblu as Gilardino suffered an injury during that move and was replaced soon after.
Miccoli attempted to curl his free kick round the outside of the wall and take Frey by surprise, but Matteo Ferrari spotted the ruse and cleared the danger.
At the other end Domenico Morfeo sprung the offside trap and his angled drive was flicked inches wide of the far post by Buffon's foot.
Yet deep into stoppages Juventus equalised on 2-2 when Miccoli held up Trezeguet's pass with his heel and rattled the crossbar, but the ball came out to Igor Tudor for a crucial header.
The Bianconeri could even have won it at the death with Miccoli's counter-attack and cross, but Di Vaio incredibly nodded wide of an open goal from six yards.
