Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Torino

Clive Rose

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd they're off! Wait...wrong Derby.

The thing about Serie A is there's a derby taking place almost every weekend. There are rivalries on top of rivalries. Better not blink, or else you'll miss one. Seriously! Don't do it!

But it's been quite a few years since Juventus and city rivals Torino actually met in a meaningful game. Maybe not decades, but it's been a couple of years. And when it comes to Juventus handing Toro a loss,

Our wait is no longer all that much at all.

Within an hour's time, Juventus Stadium will host its first Juventus-Torino derby. Tickets were basically gone immediately after they went on sale to the public, so I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the stadio is going to be a bit of a mad house when the opening kickoff takes place.

Just a guess. I've been wrong before.

Wait, I'm right about this. BELIEVE ME ON THIS ONE, FOLKS.
