Juventus 4-0 Torino

It was a Derby Della Mole to forget for Torino as Daniele Baselli's early red card allowed Juventus to prevail with a comfortable 4-0 victory.

Cristian Ansaldi was preferred to Cristian Molinaro at left back whilst Lyanco kept his place after impressing in the victory at Udinese.

In the early stages, Juan Cuadrado's shot was tipped over the bar by Salvatore Sirigu, whilst Adem Ljajic fired a shot over the bar for the visitors.

The home side took the lead after sixteen minutes when Paulo Dybala capitalised on a mistake from former team mate Tomas Rincon and fired a low shot into the bottom corner from just outside the area.

Less than ten minutes later the turning point of the match occured when Daniele Baselli received a second yellow card for a wild challenge on Miralem Pjanic and Toro were reduced to ten men.

Five minutes before half time Juve doubled their lead with another strike from outside the area, with Miralem Pjanic sweeping the ball past Sirigu.

Any hopes of a memorable comeback were extinguished early in the second half as Alex Sandro headed home from a corner. The margin of victory could have been even greater had it not been for the excellent Sirigu who made fantastic saves to deny both Mehdi Benatia and Douglas Costa.

However, Juventus did add a fourth goal in injury time with Dybala scoring his second of the game to add to Torino's misery.

Forza Toro
