Juventus

The online betting top pick, Juventus is keen on targeting their third Scudetto with style. After a disappointing draw against Hellas Verona, Juve redeemed themselves via imposing a 3-1 victory against Chievo Verona and evidently, they do not have any reasons to lose their upcoming Torino match.

 

 

Match Date: 23 February 2014 (local time)
Venue: Juventus Stadium

 

Team Form

 

Juventus

Without any Champions League match to worry, Juventus enjoy the luxury of focusing on their domestic performance and true enough, the Bianconeris clinched another victory during the Chievo Verona encounter.

 

Undefeated in their last six (6) matches, Juve’s triumph over Chievo Verona has readily showed a champion’s mark. Antonio Conte’s men sealed three (3) goals while Chievo has only managed to score once.

 

Pitted against Torino, Juventus will most likely capitalize on their home court advantage. They were undefeated in their last twelve (12) home matches. Aside from that, they were also able to score at least three (3) goals in five (5) of their recent home encounters.

 

Given this aspect at hand, securing the upper hand against this club might prove to be a futile effort.

 

Torino

Torino catapulted to the 7th spot of the Seria A table after defeating Hellas Verona. The club is fast becoming a sensational dark horse due to the major improvements they have shown,

 

Last season, Il Toro almost failed to make it this year. They almost slipped to the relegation zone if not for their hard-fought wins that supported and made their survival materialize. But their story this season has been very different. They are now in the top ten (10) and they will surely pull off an upset once they see the opportunity to do so.

 

Torino has only lost once in their last 6 matches and when winning is fast becoming a habit, one can expect the club to give Juventus a hard time on the pitch.

 

Prediction:  Juventus

Juve is keen on snatching their third Scudetto and with their great form, it is not surprising to see them dominate the said match.
