Next Saturday at 6:00pm GMT, on matchday 7 of the Serie A, we will see Torino play Juve at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino.

This clash sees ninth placed Torino, welcome tenth placed Juve to the Stadio Olimpico di Torino.

Torino face their opponents, equal on points, it will likely be a thrilling encounter

Torino have been inconsistent in their previous two games, drawing 1-1 at Venezia and 1-1 at Lazio, so a win in this fixture must be the focus.

With two draws in two meetings, Manager Ivan Juric has plenty to ponder, going into the next fixture, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With eight points, they are established in ninth in the League having won two games, drawn two matches, and lost two games.

Torino have won one game, drawn one game, and lost one game of their three League matches at home this season.

Victory for Torino would take their points tally to 11 so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

Torino will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (9). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Marko Pjaca (2), Bremer (1), and Tommaso Pobega (1). Torino have conceded six goals.

Going into Saturday’s game, Ivan Juric without seven of his players, due to illness or injury.

Juventus face his opponents with equal points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Massimiliano Allegri will hope that success brings further success, as his side look for another win in a row. Their last two outings resulted in victories against Sampdoria and Spezia Calcio.

That’s a run of two wins for Juve. They currently stand tenth in the League, with eight points having won two matches, drawn two fixtures, and lost two meetings.

Juve will travel to Torino with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one victory and one draw.

A win in this fixture, would take Juventus’s points from 8 to 11, so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

Juve have a good scoring record this season, with 10 netted so far (9 from open play and one penalty). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Alvaro Morata (2), Paulo Dybala (2), and Matthijs De Ligt (1). Juve have shown a poor defensive display so far, having conceded 10 goals in their previous matches.

Juve’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Massimiliano Allegri, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.

Torino v Juventus – Head-to-Head.
