Juventus and Torino will battle for three points this Tuesday when they meet at Allianz Stadium for the 156th edition of the Derby della Molle in Serie A.
Both teams are local rivals as they are both situated in the city of Turin. But Juventus are way ahead of their city rivals in achievement and history. Yet this season, they find themselves close to each other on the table, with Juventus sitting in eighth position, while Torino are sitting in ninth.
Despite having 15 points deducted from them, Juventus are still battling hard to qualify for a place in Europe next season. They come into this game on the back of a 3-0 midweek UEFA Europa League victory against Nantes. The win gave them a place in the next round of the Europa League.
Maximiliano Allegri’s men can reasonably be expected to win this against a Torino side they have beaten in 24 of the last 33 Serie A H2Hs (D8, L1). The visitors’ current form does not inspire confidence, too, as they come into this tie on the back of a disappointing 2-2 draw with winless Cremonese.
Winning away from home is also a problem that has plagued Torino for quite a while now, with just two victories from their last ten Serie A road trips (D3, L5). Those away games haven’t proved fruitful for points, but they have proved entertaining for the neutral, with Torino witnessing both teams score in a joint-league-high nine Serie A away games this term.
So the correct prediction for this game is BTTS/GG.
