Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Allianz Stadium when Juventus and Torino face each other in the Turin derby. Juve recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Fiorentina at the weekend, with the team keeping their 100% record in the 2017/2018 Serie A campaign intact. The title holders aim to regain top position in the standings and they are likely to go all guns blazing at their bitter local rivals Torino in Saturday’s football match. Coach Max Allegri rested several first-team regulars in the 1-0 win over Fiorentina, but he is likely to field the best possible side against Torino. Il Toro have been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Juve. A high-scoring affair appears on the cards, but we predict that the reigning champions, who a real force to be reckoned with at home, are going to pick up all three points from the local derby.
