The Italian champions are back in action this weekend, as they host Torino at the Allianz Stadium. The pressure will be building on Andrea Pirlo, as the gap between Juventus and the league leaders is currently at six points.
Serie A Preview
It has been a slow start to the Serie A season for Juventus, as they have won four of their nine games. However, they are yet to be beaten in Serie A, with their biggest issue being draws. They have drawn on five occasions so far this term, with four of those coming in their previous six. They have won just twice in that same run of games, which will be a concern to Pirlo, as they are finding it difficult to win matches this term. Juventus have won just one of their last three, with that win coming against Cagliari. They were held last time out by Benevento away from game, which was a frustrating evening for the Old Lady. Alvaro Morata opened the scoring, before he was sent off in the 97th minute. Turning draws into wins is something that Juventus have to improve on.
This isn’t the worst of fixtures for Juventus this weekend, as Torino have been one of the sides that have really struggled this season. Torino have lost five of their nine games so far this season, and have won on just one occasion. They will come into this fixture without a win in three, as they have also lost once during that run of form. They were able to rescue a draw in their last league game against Sampdoria, with Soualiho Meite and Andrea Belotti scoring the goals for the home side on that occasion. Torino find themselves in the bottom three coming into this round of fixture, and there aren’t many positives.
Juventus vs Torino Head To Head
Juventus will be looking for a 100th win in the Derby della Mole this weekend, with Torino having won on 73 occasions. Torino’s last win against their local rivals came in 2015, while Juventus won both games last season. The most recent of those victories was a 4-1 success at the Allianz Stadium.
Juventus vs Torino Prediction
Juventus have been inconsistent at the beginning of this season, but this shouldn’t be a testing fixture for them. They got a positive result in the Champions League this week to book their place in the next round, and they will get back to winning ways in Serie A in this fixture.
