Torino vs Juventus

Torino have been the most entertaining team of the season for me, and I have throughly enjoyed watching every game that they have played. Torino have knocked down 31 goals in 15 games are the 3rd highest scorers of the season. They have particularly lethal in front of their home fans knocking down 19 goals in 7 games; which is an average of almost 3 per game. They have a bunch of players who have contributed to their scoring in Betlotti (1o goals), Falque (7 goals), Ljajic (5 goals), Benassi & Baselli (4 goals each). All of them have been working well together as a team scoring together and even creating chances for them. Defensively however, Torino have still be vulnerable with goals being conceded in 12 out of their 15 goals played so far.

Juventus the defending champions have been struggling for their quality of play, but have been stealing out the results that see them at the top of the table with 12 wins from 15 games. Juventus have been clearly struggling from their form away on the road, with all 3 losses coming there. They have lost to Inter, Milan and Genoa; all 3 teams who took the attack to Juventus in those games; and with them facing their neighbors; you can’t expect any less than a hostile atmosphere in this game. The Juventus front line have been struggling over the past few games with Higuain failing to find the back of the net in the league over the past 4 games. Juventus however, still have the firepower to put in a few goals as they have in all bar 2 games this season. Things don’t get any better for them when you look at their injury crisis – Bonucci (2 months out), Barzagli (1 month), Alves (3 months), and Benatia (2 weeks).

Both teams to score.
