Torino are set to play Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on Saturday in the Serie A.

Torino come into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw against Paolo Zanetti's Venezia in the league. A second-half goal from Croatian winger Josip Brekalo for Torino was cancelled out by a penalty from midfielder Mattia Aramu for Venezia. Torino had defender Koffi Djidji sent off in the second-half.

Juventus, on the other hand, beat Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea 1-0 in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League yesterday. An early second-half goal from forward Federico Chiesa sealed the deal for Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus.

Torino vs Juventus Prediction

Torino are 9th in Serie A. They appointed a new manager this summer in the form of Ivan Juric, who joined the club after a good stint with Hellas Verona. Andrea Belotti remains Torino's star, with the Euro 2020 winner an incredibly consistent goalscorer at club level.

Juventus, on the other hand, have endured a disappointing start to their new season. They are 10th in the league, and manager Massimiliano Allegri has his job cut out. The win against Chelsea will boost their confidence. Juventus are currently 10 points behind league leaders Napoli.

Juventus will be missing some important players, but should be able to edge past Torino here.

Prediction: Torino 0-2 Juventus
