French Cup Preview

PSG will be back in action on Friday evening, as they look to regain the French Cup. The Parisians last won this competition in the 2020-21 season, as they landed their 14th honour. However, they will certainly have questions to answer this weekend, as they were beaten for the first time domestically in their previous fixture. PSG was beaten 3-1 away from home against Lens on New Year’s Day, which saw their unbeaten record in France come to an end. Their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 standings remains a healthy one, but a second straight defeat could lead to questions surrounding the manager. But, the Parisians have been dominant throughout recent history at this stage of the competition. This will be a big moment in the history of Chateauroux, as they welcome PSG to town for the French Cup tie. They currently sit 14th in National, after winning just four of their 16 games this term. Their form over their previous five games has been sketchy to say the least, as they haven’t won over that period. However, they came through the previous round in excellent fashion, as they beat Lege-Cap-Ferret 4-1 away from home. Florian Bianchini, Ferris N’Goma, and Celal Bozkurt were among the scorers in that win. Their best-ever showing in the competition came in 2003-04, as they were beaten in the final by PSG.

Chateauroux vs PSG Head to Head

The only previous competitive meeting between the sides came in the 2004 French Cup final. On that occasion, PSG claimed victory following Pedro Pauleta’s strike with just 25 minutes remaining.

Chateauroux vs PSG Prediction

This should be a testing fixture on the road for PSG, but it remains extremely difficult to see past the reigning French champions. PSG look to be the best bet to win this game, and they could claim a 3-0 win on the road. Make sure to bet on Chateauroux vs PSG with 22Bet!"

Juventus’ fight for top-four qualification turns to the Derby della Mole on Friday when they welcome Torino to the Allianz Stadium at 20:45 GMT. 

Match Preview

Can Juventus Maintain their Push for the Champions League Qualification?

Juventus salvaged a point in Bergamo against Atalanta at the death; this result kept them two points ahead of Atalanta in the race to finish fourth, the last Champions League berth in Serie A.

Attention now turns to the Derby della Mole as the Old Lady seek to maintain momentum at the top and keep the chasing pack of Atalanta, Lazio and Roma, at bay.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side are unbeaten in the last 10 matches, collecting 22 points and dropping 8 in this run.

After Two Consecutive Defeats, Can Torino Get Back to Winning Ways in the Derby?

Torino have had an inconsistent season. This is captured in their last six outings during which they have won two matches, drawn one, and lost three. 

They are in the mid- table 10th position with 32 points, very far from the European places, albeit a fair distance from the relegation battle.

The fact that Torino are safe shows that they have had a decent season; however, they will be fired up for the derby, which is always a feisty affair in Turin. 

Form Guide


Allegri’s men have continued their unbeaten run in Serie A with a 1-1-draw away at Atalanta. Juventus have collected 12 points from their last six Serie A rounds of fixtures. 

This run includes three wins and three draws. This underlines the core strength of the Old Lady; they are hard to beat, and can claim results even when not play particularly well.

The turn of form is a far cry from the early season run where they managed to lose five matches. Allegri’s side will be hoping this run of form will continue deep into the season as they seek to see off the chasing pack to finish inside the top four and earn the coveted Champions League qualification for next season. 


Heading into the derby, Torino are winless in three matches. They have lost the last two consecutive Serie A outings, and they have won two, drawn one, and lost two, in their last five Serie A rounds of fixtures. 

With just nine Serie A wins to their name this season, Torino will be looking to cause an upset at the Allianz Stadium against their city rivals. 

The game earlier in the season pitting the two was decided by Manuel Locatelli’s 86th-minute goal, with the Old Lady taking the three points and bragging rights. 

Team News


Giorgio Chiellini is a doubt for the Derby della Mole on Friday. The 37-year-old defender is out with a calf injury and is expected back by February 28th. 

Allegri will also be without right winger Federico Chiesa, who is out with a ruptured cruciate ligament. The 24-year-old Italian international is expected back in August later this year.

Right-back Danilo will also be suspended for the clash with Torino on Friday.


Central midfielder Dennis Prate will not feature on Friday; the 27-year-old is out with a fractured metatarsal. 

Tommaso Pobega underwent nose surgery on February 14th; the central midfielder is a major doubt for the Juventus clash.

Left midfielder Mohamed Fares suffered an injury to his cruciate ligament on January 18th, and is expected back towards the end of June; he will not feature for Torino on Friday.

Possible Starting Lineups


Szczesny; M. Des Sciglio, M. de Ligt, L. Bonucci, Danilo; A. Rabiot, M. Locatelli, W. McKennie; A. Morata, D. Vlahovic, P. Dyabala. 


Milinkovic-Savic; K. Djidji, G. Bremer, R. Rodriguez; W. Singo, K. Linetty, T. Pobega, M. Vojvoda; J. Brekalo, M. Pjaca; A. Sanabria

Players to Watch

D. Vlahovic

The new signing will command attention in the derby as he gets acquainted with life in Turin. His physical presence, movement, and finishing will be crucial for Juventus’ run-in, starting with Friday’s fixture with Torino.

A. Sanabria

The striker will lead the line for Torino up against Juventus’ defence. His goal threat, pace, and movement, will be instrumental for Torino, who will be under pressure for most of the match. 


Expect Juventus to dictate proceedings and dominate possession and territory. Expect Torino to give an energetic pragmatic performance designed to hurt Juventus on the counter.

Juventus will continue their unbeaten form by winning all three points.
