Torino were defeated at home by Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino on Saturday. Torino arrived with the intention of increasing their league score following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Venezia in their previous game whilst Juve were coming from consecutive wins against Sampdoria and Spezia Calcio. Following today’s result, Torino are currently 10th with 8 points from 7 matches, while Juve sit in 8th, with 11 points from 7.

Following a goalless first half, Juve continued to pile on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Manuel Locatelli just before the final whistle and seeing the game end 1-0.

For Torino, Cristian Ansaldi, Karol Linetty, Daniele Baselli and Tomas Rincon, came on for Ola Aina, Sasa Lukic, Antonio Sanabria and Josip Brekalo. Juve brought on Juan Cuadrado, Dejan Kulusevski and Kaio Jorge for Moise Kean, Federico Bernardeschi and Federico Chiesa.

There were bookings for Antonio Sanabria, Sasa Lukic and Rolando Mandragora from Torino, and Giorgio Chiellini, for Juve.

Torino will next play Napoli away, with Juve facing Roma at home.
