Our match prediction:
Stadio Olimpico will host Derby della Mole this Sunday, as Juventus are coming to play against Torino. Il Toro are on a four-game winless run in the Serie A, and the recent run of results got them down to the 13th position in the table. Giampiero Ventura was certain his charges would achieve a triumph last weekend against the Grifoni, being two ahead after the first half of the game, but Cerci and Rigoni secured all three points to remain in Genoa. Now the Bull hope to repeat the success from their previous encounter on home soil against their much more famous neighbours and end Juventus’ nineteen-game undefeated run in the league. This would be only their second triumph against the Old Lady in this century (D3 L12). Massimiliano Allegri’s charges suffered a shocking defeat against Bayern in the Champions League, having been seconds away from the advancement to the quarter-finals (4-2), and they simply need a triumph to recover from this blow and also to keep the gap between them and Napoli intact. This is why we predict that la Vecchia Signora will win in this clash.
