A controversial goal by France international David Trezeguet inspired Juventus to a 3-0 win over relegation-threatened Parma on Wednesday and gave the winners an almost certain place in next season’s Champions League.

Trezeguet’s first goal since March 22 was fortunate as patently offside he prodded the ball home after Mauro Camoranesi’s header had come off the post in the 16th minute and the Frenchman took a while to register the goal had been given.

However the result was virtually ensured when striker partner Raffaelle Palladino lashed in a stunning shot in the 30th minute.

Parma were finally put out of their misery in the 77th minute as the unfortunate Stefano Morrone headed into his own net from Juve’s Portuguese international midfielder Tiago.

Victory gave the ‘Old Lady’ a 14-point advantage with five games remaining over fifth placed AC Milan, with only the top four qualifying for the Champions League.

The final spot looks like being a fight between Sampdoria, Udinese, AC Milan and fourth placed Fiorentina with just five points separating the quartet. Parma’s defeat leaves them fourth from bottom.
