Juventus vs Torino: Bet Preview

A goalless draw away to Atalanta last weekend wasn’t the worst result for Juventus. With many of their top four foes in European action, the Old Lady might have an opportunity to make up ground. As ever, Juve are a heavy Serie A betting favourite for the Derby della Mole. 

Torino have lost just two of their opening seven matches, but they have claimed only two of the last nine available points. They were on the wrong end of a league double in the Turin rivalry last season. 

Juventus manager Max Allegri was relatively balanced in his assessment of his team after the draw with Atalanta.

“We took a risk, in the end gaining a good point which allows us to remain in the top positions,” said Allegri in his post-match interview via La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“In the first half, we could have been more clinical and calm with the ball at our feet. The boys played a good game, but we weren’t too convincing when it came to scoring goals.

“In two or three situations, we should have finished from 20 or 25 meters. We should have thought about hurting the opposition rather than maintaining possession. We had two opportunities with Fagioli. From those positions, you have to shoot from outside.”

The Italian also briefly looked ahead to the derby, noting the time both teams have to prepare.

“We didn’t lose and the point is important to stay close to the leading pack. Now we have a week to prepare for the Derby.

“Torino aren’t playing in European cups either, so we’ll both have a week to prepare for the match. In the league, they always say who is favourite or not, cups or no cups, we have to stick to the Top Four places, to also grow in self-esteem”.

It’s a fixture Juventus have dominated, and we expect them do the same this weekend. It looks like a home win to nil with Torino scoring just six goals so far.

Reckon Juventus can return to the top of Serie A in 2024? 

The Old Lady were competing on multiple fronts in the second half of 2022-23, but failed to claim any of the major trophies that were up for grabs - and they were also eliminated from Champions League outright odds.

Juventus Club History

There is no bigger or more successful club than Juventus in Serie A betting odds. Their first league title came in 1905, just eight years after the club was founded, and they have enjoyed numerous periods of dominance since then. 

The club was started by a group of students in 1897, but it took six years for them to don the iconic black-and-white stripe kit, which has been the home attire ever since.

At first, it was an athletics club, and behind Genoa, it is the second-oldest institution of its kind in Italy. 

Their only season competing outside of the top division in Italian football was 2006-07, when the club was relegated to Serie B as part of the punishments for Calciopoli.

First established as a footballing powerhouse with a string of league titles in the 1930s, Juventus were again the predominant force in Italian football during the last three decades of the 20th century.

They won a first European Cup in 1984-85, and added a second 11 years later. Their tally of three UEFA Cup wins is a joint record for an Italian club.

Six players have won the Ballon d’Or while playing for Juventus (Omar Sívori, Paolo Rossi, Michel Platini, Roberto Baggio, Zinedine Zidane, Pavel Nedvěd), and their list of former players features many other all-time greats. 

After Calciopoli, Juventus returned to Serie A and set an array of records, including a streak of nine consecutive league titles. The club is still searching for a third Champions League win, however, after several heart-breaking exits in the 21st century.
