Torino vs Juventus: Prediction
On Saturday evening, Torino and Juventus will lock horns in the first edition of the Derby della Mole for the 2019/20 season. The Granata come to this game on the back of a humiliating 0-4 loss away to Lazio. Walter Mazzarri’s side took only 6 shots at Olimpico and allowed the Biancocelesti to produce 12 goal-scoring opportunities. Winless in five games, Torino dropped to 12th position in the standings.
Bonifazi, Rincon are injured, Nkoulou is suspended for the hosts.
The Bianconeri remained at the top of the Serie A standings following a hard-fought 2-1 win over lowly Genoa. Even though Rossoblu’s played with 10 men for solid 40 minutes before Rabiot got sent off as well, Juventus struggled in the final third and almost dropped points. Despite producing 14 goal-scoring chances, they needed a penalty kick in 96′ to secure a victory against a team with the worst defensive record in the league. At the end of the day, three points is all that matters, but they need to work on their defending and finishing.
Chiellini and Pjaca are months away from full fitness, Pjanic is questionable for the game, Rabiot is suspended for Juve.
Torino have 2-2-1 record at Turin’s Olimpico. They have an average of 1.20 goals scored per game at this venue, whilst conceding a goal per match. Four of five games played at this ground had BTTS – Yes. Torino will play in regular 3-5-2 formation with Belotti (5 league goals) and Verdi (or Zaza) up-front.
Juventus have three wins and two draws away from home. Maurizio Sarri’s team is bagging 1.20 goals per game on their travels, whilst conceding 0.60. Both teams have scored in three of their five games on the road. Even though Douglas Costa is back in action, the Bianconeri are expected to play with two striker and a no.10 behind. Higuain might get the nod ahead of Dybala.
Torino are not in great shape right now and I can’t see them pulling an upset here. Juventus failed to impress against Genoa, but they should have enough firepower to overcome city rivals and record their 9th win of the season.
The Bianconeri have conceded at least one goal in seven of ten Serie A games and I see value in taking BTTS – Yes as well.
