Juventus - Torino prediction and analysis
One of the classic city derbies of the Old Continent is that of the city of Turin - between Juventus and FC Torino.
Prior to this clash, the two teams were coincidentally neighbors in the middle of the standings.
As the Old Lady, she has one point more than the Bulls.
The Bianconeri suffered a major blow to their title ambitions after being stripped of 15 points from their asset.
But now Juve are back on the winning track again. They have recorded 5 wins in their last 6 matches in all competitions.
The last of them was with the classic 3-0 away to Nantes in a rematch of the Europa League tournament.
Juventus did not concede a single goal in the mentioned 5 successes.
Also, Max Allegri's men have won 8 in 12 home games in Serie A so far (8-3-1).
And each of those 8 wins was "at zero".
Now it's Turin. After Juventus have not lost to the Bulls since 1995.
The first meeting, played earlier in the season at the Toro ground, ended 1-0 for Juve.
Prediction: Juventus to win and not concede a goal.
Juventus received a resounding slap
Juventus' season was effectively split into two parts.
Before and after Serie A was stripped of 15 points due to financial irregularities last month.
The penalty saw Max Allegri's side transform from potential challengers to runaway leaders Napoli.
In a team now struggling to finish in the Top 4.
Juventus are in strong form (5-1-0)
But they bounced back from the setback to make it three wins from their last three Serie A games.
As well as a place in the 1/8-finals in the Europa League, overcoming Nantes.
Under their strong recent form, Juve's defensive record has become one of the strongest in Serie A.
The Old Lady have conceded just 1 goal in their last 6 matches in all competitions.
And in attack, the attackers score regularly. And so the victories come one after another.
Torino is a Juventus subscriber
As proof of the complete superiority of the Bianconeri in the Derby della Molle is the following fact.
Torino's last win against Juventus came in April 1995.
And since then, there have been 13 losses in 17 consecutive attempts.
Even the return leg in October last year ended 1-0 to Juve away.
After Dusan Vlahovic's goal in the second half.
Torino has been accumulating points lately
Under the leadership of Ivan Jurich, the Bulls have recovered a bit recently.
They have only conceded 1 loss in their last 5 Calcioto matches (2-2-1).
And it was minimal with 0-1 as a guest of the third Milan.
Thus, Toro established themselves as contenders for the top half of the standings.
As today's rivals are separated by only a point. Albeit thanks to Juve's off-field offences.
