Juventus v Torino Preview

After ending a run of twenty years without beating Juventus back in April, Torino will have renewed optimism ahead of Saturday's Derby della Mole.

The Granata are without a win in four following Wednesday's disappointing draw with Genoa, but face a Juventus side struggling to cope without summer departures of Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and Carlos Tevez.

Therefore, despite Toro's poor recent form, they are still three points and two places above their city rivals. The Bianconeri suffered their fourth defeat of the season in midweek at Sassuolo which lead to experienced goalkeeper Gigi Buffon issuing a rallying cry to his teammates and the squad being placed in Ritiro.

Toro will be without a number of key players with Danilo Avelar, Nikola Maksimovic, Joel Obi Alessandro Gazzi and Josef Martinez all out injured. The toughest choice for Giampiero Ventura may be who partners Fabio Quagliarella up front and whether he goes for the energy of Andrea Belotti or the experience of Maxi Lopez.

Forza Toro
