Juventus vs Torino Preview – Prediction, how to watch & potential line-up

Allianz Stadium forms the backdrop for the latest Derby della Mole edition as arch-rivals Juventus and Torino meet for the 156th time in Serie A on Tuesday.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side will take the field in high spirits after a 3-0 midweek Europa League win at Nantes fired them into the competition’s round of 16, offering the Bianconeri an alternate route in next season’s Champions League group stages. 

Veteran forward Angel Di Maria inspired his team to a thumping victory at the Stade de la Beaujoire with a hat-trick, including a potential Puskas Award nominee to break the deadlock. 

Back to domestic proceedings following a morale-boosting continental travel, Juventus are looking to pick up where they left off last weekend, as a 2-0 win at Spezia extended their winning league run to three games. 

However, the consequences of January’s 15-point deduction will likely haunt the record-time Italian champions back, no matter the outcome, with fourth-placed Roma boasting a 12-point lead ahead of the kick-off.

Unlike their hosts, Torino could not blame anyone but themselves for trailing European placings by ten points at the start of this round.

Ivan Juric’s underachievers could only manage a 2-2 home draw against whipping boys Cremonese last Monday despite taking a half-time lead through their main man Antonio Sanabria. 

The Paraguayan forward is also the only player in the current Granata squad to have scored against Juventus in Serie A, so the visitors’ hopes of ending a 17-game winless H2H run will likely rest upon his delivery. 

Match Preview


Following a patchy four-game league form at the start of 2023 (W1, D1, L2), Juventus have hit the ground running, winning their last three Serie A matches ‘to nil.’ 

Victories without conceding have been a common theme under Allegri, with only Barcelona (16) racking up more triumphs in that manner than the Bianconeri (14) across Europe’s top-five leagues this season.

Whether they keep another clean sheet or not, Juventus should walk away with three points, as you’d have to go back to 1995 for their last home league loss to Torino (W11, D5 since).


Torino’s woeful 33-match Serie A record against Juventus (W1, D8, L24) is not the only reason the odds are stacked against them on a derby day. 

Juric’s men have established themselves as ‘stalemate specialists’ in 2023, drawing a league second-high four out of eight top-flight games since the turn of the year.

Torino wouldn’t mind another share of the spoils against their more heavily fancied hosts, but it’s worth noting they have lost all three league visits to serial top-four tenants AC Milan, Inter Milan and Napoli this term.

Juventus vs Torino Potential Line-ups

Juventus (3-4-1-1): Wojciech Szczesny; Danilo, Gleison Bremer, Alex Sandro; Juan Cuadrado, Nicolo Fagioli, Leandro Paredes, Adrien Rabiot, Filip Kostic; Angel Di Maria; Dusan Vlahovic. 

Torino (3-4-2-1): Vanja Milinkovic-Savic; Koffi Djidji, Perr Schuurs, Alessandro Buongiorno; Wilfried Singo, Ivan Ilic, Adopo, Mergim Vojvoda; Aleksei Miranchuk, Nemanja Radonjic; Antonio Sanabria. 

Juventus vs Torino Prediction

Juventus’ Europa League success helped to alleviate some pressure on Allegri, but handing the bragging city rights to Torino could reignite fears over his job security. 

The hosts are in far better shape at the moment, so we expect Juve to maintain their H2H dominance over the Granata, though it’s likely to go down the wire again.

Juventus 1-0 Torino
