Juventus vs Torino
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium, Turin.
The grip around Andrea Pirlo’s neck tightens, as Juventus keeps spilling points on domestic scene. Can this finally be the year when someone de-thrones Old Lady?
Juve are already six points behind AC Milan nine rounds into the new campaign, and most recent form is not looking promising at all.
Last weekend’s 1-1 draw against Benevento was very disappointing and underwhelming to watch.
Squad desperately needed a good match in Champions League against Dynamo Kiev not for points, but to regain confidence which they did eventually.
Big city derby against Torino is ahead and can the Bulls cause any damage to the champions?
Bookies are offering very low 1.40 odds on Juventus to win on Saturday.
Juventus vs Torino Head-to-head
There were 34 head to head encounters between these city rivals in the past. As expected, stats are heavily going in Juventus’ favour. The Old Lady secured 24 victories, while losing in only three occasions.
The Bianconeri had zero troubles to collect all six points against Bulls last season. They won both games with total goal difference of 5-1.
Interestingly, five out of the last six meetings ended Under 2.5 goals.
Juventus vs Torino Prediction
Juve’s fans have finally saw something positive coming from Federico Chiesa. This player hasn’t showed much since arrival from Fiorentina besides one unnecessary red card. He scored nice goal in 3-0 victory against Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday.
Hopefully he can replicate good form onto Serie A games as well, as Ronaldo desperately needs some support upfront. Portuguese super-star scored eight goals so far despite two-week absence from the pitch.
Juve dropped a lot of points in draws against weaker teams like Benevento, Crotone and Hellas Verona. We highly doubt that is going to happen versus Torino. Home win to nil’ at 2.62 is one of the best value bets available throughout whole weekend in our opinion. Even though Bulls were consistent when it comes to scoring lately, their record against city rivals is awful, plus they are in the relegation zone.
