Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Torino

Paolo Bruno

We take you from the excitement of Juventus playing in the Euorpa League and back to our regularly scheduled Serie A programming. And not a bad way to jump right back into the domestic fray.

It's derby day, friendos. Not just any derby day in the lovely city of Turin, but it's Derby della Mole day at Juventus Stadium in just a matter of minutes. It might not be the Good vs. Evil that the Derby d'Italia was like a couple of weeks ago, but it's still a pretty heated rivalry.

That's probably putting it lightly, but who's keeping track of these things anyway.

(Don't respond to that.)

Juventus, of course, enter atop the table after extending their unbeaten run with a 3-1 win over Chievo this time last weekend. It's 16 games straight, the crazy plus-32 goal differential seemingly getting even more and more massive as the weeks go by.

Torino, though, have flown up the Serie A standings. Just like with Hellas Verona a few weeks back, did you expect Torino to be sitting in contention for a European spot this time of the season? Maybe some did. But through 24 rounds. not many people who are in the game of predicting things that happen in the calcio world could have expected Torino to enter the weekend's action four points out of fifth place thanks in large part to losing just two games since the middle of November.

But when it comes to one of these inner-city rivalries, does form really matter?

I guess there's only one way to find out.

Lineups will be posted RIGHT HERE when they become available. How many Turin natives will Antonio Conte field against Torino tonight? Ah, that's for him to know and for us to find out. Sounds...intriguing.
