Torino take on the visitors Juventus in the round 10 match of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Saturday, October 15th at Stadio Olimpico di Torino (Turin).
Torino played well last season under leadership of Ivan Yurich. They were able to take 10th place in Serie A 2021/2022 with a Croatian - not an outrageous result, but a year earlier there was a finish above the relegation zone. But in the summer the roster was overhauled, and, judging by open conflicts with one of directors, the coach was not entirely satisfied with the transfer activity. However, at the closing of the "window" a number of newcomers were invited, including Miranchuk and Vlasic, who came on loan. The Croat has already scored three times, this is the top scorer of his new club. As a result, the "Pomegranate" were able to start well, taking 10 points in the first 5 rounds. But then problems began: they lost three times, not only to the giants, Inter and Napoli, but also to Sassuolo (0-1 at home). And only with "Empoli" it turned out to take a draw, and then due to a goal by Lukic in the 90th minute.

Juventus will approach the derby in a terrible mood. They updated the next anti-records, losing three times in the first 4 matches of the group stage of this Champions League. It's ok to lose away to PSG, but that was followed by a 1-2 at home against Benfica. Moreover, having beaten at least "Maccabi" last week, in Haifa "Old Lady" lost on Tuesday 0-2! As if this is not enough, she also lost twice in the domestic arena in 3 last fights, first to the debutant, Monza, and on October 8th to the champion, Milan. Moreover, for 9 matches played in Calcio, it was possible to take only 3 wins and 13 points, and it is not surprising that Allegri's wards are in the middle of the table, in 8th position. However, the board is showing support to the manager. Although he makes it clear, even publicly, that he has a maximum of time until the end of the season. The only question is how many more slaps the grandee will endure.
Formally, this is, of course, a derby, and quite a principled one at that. But in the Torino case, after 1995, he won only once, in 2015. But in the last 3 head-to-head matches there were as many as 2 draws. Bookmakers still consider Juventus to be the favorite, but they put quite high quotes on it. In any case, both clubs do not shine. So let's focus on the option with "less than 2.5 goals".
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
