As Juventus and Torino meet for the Derby Della Mole, Torino will hope to topple their unbeaten city rivals in their Serie A clash.

Predictions

For Juventus the aim is to keep winning. And so far, they have done pretty well at hitting that aim, with a 1-0 win over Inter taking them to record highs in Serie A.

Top of the league and their Champions League group, things could not be going better.

Torino have had a decent season thus far, finding themselves among the places for Europa League qualification and knocking on the door of the Champions League.

Having won 2-1 against Genoa they and beat Sudtirol in the Coppa Italia, it has been a good week. But the next week could be a tough one as they play Milan away before the derby.

Both history and form are not on their side, sports betting sites would likely conclude that the could lose by a lot, as much as 3-0..

Betting Tips

The Croatian has shown few signs of World Cup fatigue, already exceeding his league goals tally from last season in just over a quarter of the time. He has found the net in four of his last five games and add to that the goals of Ronaldo, Juve may get a few, even if their football has not been at its free-scoring best.

Where Juventus really excel is their defence. They have conceded only eight goals all season, keeping five clean sheets in their last five games. Torino have also failed to score against Juventus in their last three attempts.
