Juventus were made to work hard for a 2-1 win at Parma that maintains their perfect start to the Serie A season.
The champions looked on course for a comfortable evening when Mario Mandzukic netted after two minutes, but Parma made life difficult for their esteemed guests until the former Croatia international intervened again to tee up Blaise Matuidi's winner.
There was still no breakthrough for Juve new boy Cristiano Ronaldo, though, as his barren start to life in Italy continues beyond an international break during which he will miss action for Portugal.
