Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Torino

New, comments

Ir's an "away" game, but not really an "away" game for Juventus. Even though they no longer share the same stadium with their city rivals like had for so many years prior. That means even though Juventus will be wearing their home jerseys when they step onto the pitch at the Stadio Olimpico, it will officially be an away game against Torino.

It's been awhile since that happened, but that's the truth.

So as Juventus head into their first away Derby della Mole in just about 50 years, Antonio Conte and his Juventus squad are all of four points away from wrapping up the second Scudetto in as many seasons. And wouldn't it be nice to get it sewed up as soon as possible? I think that'd be one hell of an idea.

That means three points ahead, keeping the current six-game winning going and making next weekend's game against Palermo — on the oh-so-memorable May 5th — the first day for another Scudetto party. And let's to be honest: Who doesn't like a party after winning the Scudetto? I know I do. I think you should, too.

So, rise and shine, fellow Americanos. We've got a Turin Derby to watch.
