Torino vs Juventus 18 February 2016: Serie A Preview and Predictions

It is derby weekend in Turin as Torino plays host to Juventus in what should be a very good game of football. Both sides will be desperate to get a win since this game means lots of their fans and that should give this game a big spark.

Juventus would not have been happy with their performance over the week as they failed to beat Spurs at home in the Champions League. This would have angered the fans and as a result the team will feel that they must win this game. Torino is a side that Juventus should be able to beat but considering this is a derby game, it might not be a very easy task.

Torino have always been the smaller side in this derby but with Juventus having a very busy schedule, this might be the opportunity they need to get a win over the Old Lady of Italian football. The home side are playing decent football but things will need to go very well for them if they are to get a win. The home crowd is expected to be big for this game and they will hope that this added boost gets the job done.

With all that in mind, I think we are going to get a draw in this game. Torino will be desperate for a win for their home fans while Juventus have bigger Champions League issues to deal with. We are getting a good price on this bet and as a result it is the wager I am suggesting for this game.
