Juventus v Torino Preview

Torino will head into the 195th Derby Della Mole on Saturday evening looking to emulate the great Toro sides of the past.

This fixture will undoubtedly be an emotional one, as only two days have passed since the 68th anniversary of the Superga air disaster - a tragedy that killed the entire Grande Torino squad.

On Thursday, the current squad joined supporters in paying tribute to Torino's greatest ever team, and now those players now have an opportunity to write their own names in the history books.

Toro's away form has been poor for most of the campaign, however consecutive away victories at Cagliari and Chievo may gave their supporters hope that a result at the Juventus stadium is possible.

Emiliano Moretti should partner Luca Rossettini in central defence, whilst Juan Iturbe could start after scoring against Sampdoria last weekend.

Juventus could win the title this weekend, should they win and Roma fail to do so tomorrow against AC Milan. However, Massimiliano Allegri is expected to rotate his squad ahead of their Champions League Semi Final 2nd leg on Tuesday.

Forza Toro

  1. I think it’s great that Torino decided to pay tribute to the previous players who lost their lives in the tragic incident. Good luck to the teams for the game.
