Juventus vs. Torino Predictions and Preview
Juventus may have needed 50 minutes to break down a resolute Genoa, but Maurizio Sarri will have been impressed with what he saw. Paulo Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo and Douglas Costa all got on the scoresheet and the Portuguese legend’s 35-yard effort was the pick of the bunch.
Fellow forward Costa curled in from a similar distance and will contest Federico Bernardeschi for a position on the right flank for the duration of the campaign. Sarri has Gonzalo Higuain at his disposal again after the striker’s spell on the sidelines with a thigh injury.
The Argentine marked his return with an emphatic strike against Lecce, and as the only orthodox centre-forward in the ranks, will be handed a significant role both domestically and on the continent. The former Real Madrid hitman is 6/5 to score anytime and add to his eight-goal haul.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo is 2/1 to open proceedings and has not given up hope of catching league top scorer Ciro Immobile. The Lazio ace has 29 strikes to his name, five more than his closest rival but there is plenty of football still to be played and the 35-year-old will fancy his chances of catching the Italian. Juventus are 3/10 to earn victory and city bragging rights.

Elsewhere, Moreno Longo’s men have lost their last two. Toro still retain a sizable cushion over the clubs below them, but could easily be sucked in if they fail to pick up a positive result in their next three or four matches.
Crucially, the visitors have an attacker capable of hurting any squad in the division. Skipper Andrea Belotti has 20 goal contributions from 35 appearances in all competitions and is an Inter transfer target.
One to watch for Juventus: Sarri is utilising Douglas Costa as a supersub and the role suits the speedy winger. The Brazilian is the perfect asset against tired legs and can be found at 11/2 to score last.
One to watch for Torino: Simone Zaza will join Belotti up top and has a good understanding with his compatriot. The Italy international is 4/1 to bag anytime.
Long shot: Torino have taken a share of the spoils in only two of the last 12 meetings between the clubs and their last victory dates back to 2015. A repeat of the 2-1 outcome is available at a whopping 33/1 and would throw the title race wide open again.
