Torino v Juventus Preview

Torino head into Sunday's 235th Derby Della Mole in optimistic fashion despite suffering defeat against Sampdoria in their last fixture.

The Granata are unbeaten at home this season, winning five of their seven fixtures so far with attacking trident Adem Ljajic, Andrea Belotti and Iago Falque weighing in with an impressive tally of twenty-two goals already this season.

Toro have no injuries ahead of the derby, so Sinisa Mihajlovic may choose to stick with the eleven who were slightly unfortunate in defeat against Samp last Sunday. However, Toro once again conceded from a set piece in that game, and this is a recurring problem which the Granata must deal with ahead of Juve's visit.

Juventus are four points clear at the top of the Serie A table and completed the double (and a cup victory) over Toro last season - however, they have already suffered three away defeats this season, which will give Torino heart. As will the fact the bianconeri will be without key defenders Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci.

Forza Toro
