This weekend’s Serie A brings a new Derby della Mole as Torino and Juventus square off at the Olimpico di Torino in a crucial matchup on Saturday.
Inconsistency has plagued Torino thus far this season, occupying the 10th spot in the Serie A standings. The host team will need to step it up in this match after playing to a 1-1 draw with Empoli last weekend.
Juventus, on the other hand, is currently eighth in the league table and has fallen short of expectations this season. The Bianconeri must recover after a shocking 2-0 loss to Maccabi Haifa in their previous match.

After serving a Serie A suspension that held him out of games against Bologna and Milan, Juventus welcomed Angel Di Maria back in midweek.
However, the Argentina international was forced to leave the game against Haifa due to a hamstring injury, which will keep him out until November.
Mattia De Sciglio is also ruled out of the derby due to a thigh injury. Thus Alex Sandro may stay left-back, while Filip Kostic might be utilised as a wing-back if Max Allegri opts for a 3-5-2 formation.
In such a move, Dusan Vlahovic, who has only scored once against Torino in eight previous games, would team with Arkadiusz Milik in the starting XI.
The hosts could even start the same lineup that drew Empoli the last time out because they don’t have any injury problems. However, due to Mergim Vojvoda’s regaining fitness, Ola Aina and Valentino Lazaro now face competition on either flank.
Last year, Antonio Sanabria became the first Torino player to record a Serie A double against Juventus since 2000. Still, the Paraguayan striker has gone nearly nine months without scoring on home soil.
Torino Serie A form:
W, L, L, L, D
Juventus Serie A form:
D, D, L, W, L
Torino predicted lineup:
Milinkovic-Savic; Djidji, Schuurs, Rodriguez; Aina, Lukic, Linetty, Lazaro; Miranchuk, Vlasic; Sanabria
Juventus predicted lineup:
Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, Bremer, Sandro; McKennie, Paredes, Rabiot, Kostic; Milik, Vlahovic
Torino 1-1 Juventus
This season, Juventus has been in dreadful form and has failed practically every significant Serie A test. The Bianconeri have a mountain to climb this season after giving up four goals in their last two games without scoring themselves.
Torino can be pretty intense sometimes, but they also have problems that they must resolve before this game. Since neither team is performing at its peak right now, this weekend’s victories might be shared by both.
