Juventus vs Torino: Prediction
Torino are coming on the back of an excellent form and this is a huge confidence booster for the team when taking on a team like Juventus. But, we need to understand that their 5-match unbeaten streak at the start of the season came against teams that finished outside the top six in Serie A last season.
Yet, it is extremely difficult to take points away at the Juventus Stadium. The only thing that punter must consider here is a much better competitive effort from the visitors. So, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals are all probable happenings in this fixture. But, the Old Lady are expected to bag all three points when the final whistle blows.
