Torino vs Juventus by Marlo

Torino
VS
Juventus
For this pick, I am going firmly against history.

 

In fact, here is the stats from the last five encounters between these sides;

 

28.04.13 SER Torino Juventus 0 : 2

 

01.12.12 SER Juventus Torino 3 : 0

 

07.03.09 SER Torino Juventus 0 : 1

 

25.10.08 SER Juventus Torino 1 : 0

 

26.02.08 SER Juventus Torino 0 : 0

 

The above seems a logical pick for btts - NO, yes? ....Well no.....

 

I am taking both teams to score on here because I simply can't see why Juventus are 1/2 for any road game this season when they haven't impressed at the start of the season.

 

Juventus have conceded many times when we expected them to keep clean sheets, they conceded against FC Copenhagen in Denmark, against Verona at home. In their midweek game, they conceded again too and this time managed to come from behind and win away to Chievo.

 

Juventus haven't kept a clean sheet since the opening day of the Serie A and it is hard to see them keeping out Torino in this one despite the past history stacked in their favour.

 

Larrondo is the only injury doubt for the Turin derby match for 8th placed Torino who have collected 8 points from 5 games with 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss.

 

Torino have scored in all of their home games, most notably holding AC Milan to a 2-2 draw, beating Sassulo 2-0 and holding Verona 2-2.

 

I can see them scoring here for sure whether it is first or last, I won't even rule out a late consolation if Juventus score a few to put the game to bed.

 

Pepe, Caceres and Rubinho remain the only injury misses for Juventus who also have Champions League midweek to keep an eye on.

 

Odds are insulting to Torino and well worth a go.pin
