Torino v Juventus Preview
Toro's last win in this fixture came just under three years ago as the Granata came from behind to win thanks to goals from Matteo Darmian and Fabio Quagliarella. However, Torino did come close to beating Juve away from home last season, although were denied by Gonzalo Higuian's late equaliser.
Walter Mazzarri is expected to utilise a 4-3-1-2 formation like he did to good effect against Sampdoria a fortnight ago, and that may mean that M'Baye Niang drops to the bench.
Juventus are in imperious domestic form, having won eight consecutive games, and have kept clean sheets in their last five Serie A matches. However, Tuesday's Champions League game against Tottenham showed that Juve can be vulnerable, as 'The Old Lady' threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2.
