Our prediction for this Serie A match:
There will be fireworks when Juventus and Torino face each other in the Turin derby on Tuesday evening. The Bianconeri are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, and they must be brimming with confidence ahead of the local derby. Federico Chiesa is a major doubt, while all Fabio Miretti, Arkadiusz Milik, and Kaio Jorge remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Il Toro, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle with 31 points on their account. Since the visitors failed to impress in a 2-2 draw with Cremonese, we are tempted to put our money on “The Old Lady”. All Pietro Pellegri, Samuele Ricci, David Zima, and Valentino Lazaro are out of contention with injuries, while Etrit Berisha is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Earlier this season Juventus defeated Torino thanks to Dusan Vlahovic’s goal.
