It’s set to be Cristiano Ronaldo’s first derby for Juventus since joining the Old Lady from Real Madrid over the summer, and both teams are currently in the top six in Serie A.

Juventus stay top position with 43 points in the league table and Turino at 6 positions with 22 points. Even though Juventus is out of touch, Turin will fight back.

Juventus squad Sami Khedira and Andrea Barzagli are still nursing injuries, and the club didn’t have the opportunity to rest many players midweek in the Champions League as it aimed to win its group. Torino is entering the game in good shape with no major injuries and a defence that is looking sharp. Torino has conceded just one goal in its last four games in all competitions. But everyone eye’s on CR7, it’s his first derby.

Juventus will look to end the week on a positive note by overcoming their near neighbours, though Giorgio Chiellini is well aware of the task at hand.

“Torino has improved a lot,” the centre-back, who did not play in midweek due to the artificial surface, warned.

“They’re physical and they’re good on the counterattack. With Walter Mazzarri they’ve made an important upgrade, they can aim for Europe and they can certainly cause us problems.

“They’re a team I like, aside from the 180 minutes per season in which we’re rivals. Cristiano Ronaldo already knows that two games here aren’t like the others: Inter and Toro.”
