Torino vs Juventus: prediction for the Serie A match
Torino signed a contract with Ivan Yuric this season, hoping that the new coach will be able to improve the team's results. Juric started with two defeats in a row against Atalanta and Fiorentina with the same score of 1:2. In the following rounds, the Bulls showed high-quality football and managed to defeat Salernitana (4:0) and Sassuolo (1:0).
Torino didn't build on their success in the last rounds. Two weeks ago, the Bulls hosted Lazio. The hosts were in the lead for the entire game but conceded in injury time (1:1). The same thing happened in the last match against Venezia (1:1). Currently Torino are on the 9th line in the table.
Juventus had their worst start in half a century. The Old Lady drew with Udinese (2:2) in the first round, and then suffered two defeats against Empoli (0:1) and Napoli (1:2). Juve scored a 1:1 draw with AC Milan in the fourth round and then earned their first victory against Spezia (3:2).
In the last Serie A game, Juventus went against Sampdoria. It was a hard-earned 3:2 victory, that helped the Old Lady reach the 10th line in the table. In the Champions League, Juventus had a more successful start. In the first round, they beat Malmo in Sweden with a score of 3:0. On Wednesday, the Old Lady beat Chelsea at home (1:0), thus securing the 1st line in her group.
Torino suffered the last 2 defeats with this score.
This bet played in 2 of the last 3 games between the clubs.
Torino scored in the second half in their last 6 games.
Juventus have significantly improved their performance in recent matches. They aren't in top form yet, but the progress is clear. The Old Lady will strive to improve their standings and earn three points. Torino looked decent at the start of the season, but they look poor in defense in the later rounds. We think that they will lose to Juventus in this fixture.
Our prediction - Juventus to win
Juventus won three games in a row and have not lost for five rounds. The Old Lady will try to extend their unbeaten streak. In recent years, Torino can't win against Juventus; the last time they defeated the rivals was way back in 2015 and we don't think the Bulls will be able to get the upper hand today. However, in our opinion, Torino will not suffer a crushing defeat.
Our second bet - Juventus to win by 1 goal.
