Juventus is hosting Torino at Allianz Stadium in a Derby di Torino in round 30 in Italian Serie A.
After losing the Coppa Italia to Napoli, Juventus has shifted gears and is now on a 3-game winning streak in Serie A. during this stretch, Juventus has scored 9 goals while conceding only 1 goal. Juventus is at the top of the standings with 72 points, but Lazio is dangerously close to them, just 4 points away from them. Juventus has the best defense in Serie A with only 25 conceded goals, and while 59 scored goals seems a lot, Juventus is only the third-best offensive team in Serie A. in their last Serie A game against Genoa on the road, Juventus was dominant with 64% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and 89% of the correct passes. With three scored goals in the second half, Juventus has won this game 1-3. Ronaldo has scored 24 goals for Juventus in Serie A this season and is one of the top goal scorers in the league, while Dybala added 10 goals and 6 assists. Demiral, Khedira, Sandro, and De Sciglio are all injured. There are plenty of games left in the season, and even though Juventus is at the top now, just one slip up is enough for them to lose that spot. Juventus might have the best defense, but they have struggled a few times with scoring goals this season.
Torino has won only 1 of their last 8 games, and only 1 win since the restart. Torino is just 6 points away from the relegation zone, in 14th place with 31 points, but if they continue with this pace, Torino will soon be in the relegation zone. Torino hasn’t been playing well on either end this season and they scored only 33 goals while conceding massive 52 goals. Andrea Belotti has scored 12 goals for Torino this season, while Berenguer added 5 goals. Simone Verdi added 4 assists. Daniele Baselli is the only injured player for Torino. In their latest Serie A game against Lazio at home, Torino has had 48% of ball possession, 2 corner kicks, 84% of the correct passes, but only 1 shot on goal. Torino got ahead from a penalty kick in the 5th minute, but Lazio was the better team overall and they were able to turn the game around in the second half. Torino has lost this match 1-2. I’m sure everyone in Torino expected to be safe and secured at this point of the season, but Torino’s struggles are just beginning, and their battle to stay in Serie A is just getting started.
Even though this is a derby in Italy, quality-wise it’s not even close. Juventus is a much better team in a much better form. Both Juventus and Torino could use a win here, but I think Juventus will get this one. Ronaldo seems to be catching his old goal-scoring form, and when he is scoring, Juventus is winning.
