Torino will host Juventus at the Stadio Grande Torino on Serie A Matchday 32, and the Granata will be facing a Bianconeri team that has returned to winning ways.

La Vecchia Signora are third in Serie A with 62 points, and they defeated Fiorentina 1-0 in the previous round. It was a vital win for the Italian giants, who had won just once in the previous nine Serie A matches, and they had to capitalise on fourth-place Bologna slipping up away to Frosinone.

Meanwhile, Torino are ninth in the table with 44 points, and despite a double from Duvan Zapata, they suffered a 3-2 defeat away to Empoli in their last match. They are four points off Napoli in seventh spot, but qualification for either the Europa League or Europa Conference League is becoming slimmer by the week.

Juventus won 2-0 in the most recent Derby della Mole on Matchday 8, whereas Torino have not tasted victory in a Turin derby since April 2015, when goals from Matteo Darmian and Fabio Quagliarella cancelled out an Andrea Pirlo free-kick. On paper, the Bianconeri should maintain their dominance in the city of Turin.

Torino vs Juventus: Predicted line-ups

Torino will be missing Perr Schuurs, Koffi Djidji, Ivan Ilic, and Gvidas Gineitis due to injuries. Meanwhile, Matteo Lovato and Samuele Ricci are one yellow card away from suspension. Arkadiusz Milik is the main absentee for Juventus, recovering from a muscular injury, whereas Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli are serving long-term bans.

Granata tactician Ivan Juric is probably going to implement the 3-4-1-2 formation with Zapata and Antonio Sanabria forming the striker partnership. Meanwhile, his Bianconeri counterpart Massimiliano Allegri will stick to a more conventional 3-5-2 system. Both coaches prioritise defensive stability over attacking flair, so expect this match to be a very tight affair.

Torino predicted XI vs Juventus (3-4-1-2): Milinkovic-Savic; Tameze, Buongiorno, Rodriguez; Bellanova, Ricci, Linetty, Lazaro; Vlasic; Sanabria, Zapata

Juventus predicted XI vs Torino (3-5-2): Szczesny; Gatti, Bremer, Danilo; Cambiaso, McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Chiesa, Vlahovic
