Torino vs Juventus by Rahul

Torino
VS
Juventus
Juventus are now out of the Champions League after a valiant effort and should have actually beaten Bayern Munich if not for a wrong decision on the offside call. Juventus now look forward to focussing on retaining their Serie A title, and with Napoli playing later in the day at home to Genoa, the pressure will be on Juventus to get the 3 points tonight. Juventus play in the city in the Turin Derby against rivals Torino and will be looking to take revenge after the last 2-1 loss away from home.

 

Juventus have traditionally dominated this fixture winning 8 out of their last 9 meeting between these sides, and Juventus have not lost a game over the recent period going 19 games unbeaten in Serie A; with just 1 draw during that period. The forward line of Morata, Manduzkic along with the 2 attacking midfielders in Cuadrado and Pogba will be going for the kill from minute 1. They can also look forward to the return of Dybala back from injury to give more pace up front to attack against Torino. The midfield has been relatively solid with Khedira and Hernanes sitting in midfield especially since Marchisio will be missing through injury. Defensively, Juventus could play with 4 at the back with Evra and Lichsteiner partnering Bonucci and Barzagli especially Chellini has not recovered from injury. The back 4 has been good in defending but also can contribute to attacking when needed.

 

Torino have struggled recently to produce good results, struggling to win in any of their last 4 games. At home they have only won 1 out of their last 7 games, only 2 wins out of 12 in 2016, which further showcases the tough times that they are having. Juventus have already played them twice this season and won 4-0 and 2-1; and Torino will feel the threat when Juventus come to play them at home. Torino's only recent success has been the won victory last season against Juventus, which was their first for 20 years; and will look forward to using the home crowd support to try and get another win again. Torino will feel a bit of pressure additionally because they are just 5 points above the relegation zone, and will have to rely a lot on their forward Immobile and Belotti to help them score against their arch rivals.

 

This game will be a fiercely contested one, and with referee Nicola Rizzoli taking charge, there can be a lot of cards and potentially a red one during the game but Juventus have strong motivation to win this game to ensure pressure on Torino, so they will look to grab all 3 points in this encounter.
