The match of the 10th round of Serie A between Torino and Juventus will take place on October 15 at the Olimpico Grande Torino stadium in Turin.
In the last round, the team played a draw at home against Empoli with a score of 1:1 and extended their winless streak to 4 fights in the Italian championship (1 draw, 3 losses). Due to such an unfortunate stretch, Torino dropped to 10th position in the top division standings and is now 8 points behind the European Cup zone. The club scores little, it has only 8 goals, only 4 league teams have less. At home, Torino failed to win in 5 of the 6 previous matches in Serie A (2 draws, 3 losses).
The club lost an important match of the last round to Milan with a score of 0:2. This defeat was for Juventus the 2nd in the current Serie A season (3 wins, 4 draws) and dropped even further from the leading group. Now the team is on the 8th line in the top division standings and is already 10 points behind the 1st place. At the same time, Juventus plays quite reliably in defense and conceded 7 goals, only Atalanta and Lazio have less (5 each). Please note that the club has not won on the road for 6 matches in Serie A (2 draws, 4 losses).
“Torino” in the last match of the championship escaped from defeat only in the 90th minute. The team scores little, for 9 meetings in Serie A, only 7 times hitting the opponents’ goal. The club’s home matches turn out to be ineffective: in the current championship, only 4 goals were scored in 4 matches. At the same time, Torino started well, and it seemed that the team would seriously fight for European Cup places.
Juventus continues its unsuccessful performances, for 2 seasons the club did not really claim the championship. Before the current championship, the team has strengthened the composition, but this does not help yet. This week, Juventus suffered another fiasco, losing in the Champions League to the modest Maccabi Haifa (0:2). But despite the setbacks, management has no plans yet to fire Massimiliano Allegri.
We think that the guests should not concede this time either, the club is in too difficult a situation now to lose the 3rd official match in a row.
