Torino vs Juventus Prediction & Match Preview

Torino

Juventus

03 April 2021 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET Serie A Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino

Torino and Juventus go head to head in the local derby in what is expected to be a very entertaining encounter. 

Following a 3-2 win over Sassuolo, Il Toro suffered a 1-0 loss to Sampdoria in their last league match, with the team remaining in the danger zone. 

Torino are only one point clear of bottom three, and it is no wonder bookies see them as underdogs in the Turin derby.

The Bianconeri, on the other hand, are ten points behind league leaders Inter, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for Antonio Conte’s troops. 

Anyhow, Juve are more of a team than Torino, and we predict that Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. are going to prove their worth on the field. 

Ramsey remains on the sidelines through injury, while all Alex Sandro, Demiral, and Dybala are rated doubtful for the match.

Team News:

In addition to defenders Merih Demiral and Leonardo Bonucci, who have both tested positive for COVID-19, news of a party which took place at American midfielder Weston McKennie's home could have further consequences for Andrea Pirlo's selection for the Derby.

With McKennie and attendee Paulo Dybala - finally fully fit after an injury-plagued campaign - now potentially being dropped due to disciplinary reasons (fellow party goer Arthur is set to be absent through injury in any case), Juventus could see their options restricted by their reckless actions.

Centre-back Giorgio Chiellini returned from Italy duty early having picked up a knock, so if unavailable, Pirlo will face a dilemma at the heart of his defence, where Matthijs de Ligt is certainly set to feature.

Top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo should be joined by Alvaro Morata up front, after a controversy-filled stint with his national side and amid intense speculation as to his future come the end of the season.

In midweek, Torino confirmed that wing-back Wilfried Singo sustained a thigh injury in training and will not be fit in time to play against Juventus, so Mergim Vojvoda is expected to start on the right flank for the hosts.

Central defensive trio Bremer, Lyanco and Nicolas Nkoulou are all major doubts ahead of the game, posing head coach Davide Nicola a similar selection headache to his opposite number.

Azzurri midfielder Rolando Mandragora - currently at the club on loan from Juve - is eligible to play and will start in the centre, with Antonio Sanabria set to partner Mandragora's international colleague Andrea Belotti up front.

Torino possible starting lineup:
Sirigu; Izzo, Bremer, Buongiorno; Vojvoda, Linetty, Mandragora, Rincon, Ansaldi; Sanabria, Belotti

Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Danilo, Chiellini, De Ligt; Cuadrado, Bentancur, Ramsey, Rabiot, Chiesa; Morata, Ronaldo
