Italy: Serie A
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
One of the most popular Italian football Derbies of Turin is an absolute antipode of everlasting fight of Roma and Lazio, Milan and Inter and even Genoa and Sampdoria.
As it is the most peaceful derby out of all main derbies. And the reason of such serenity is the absolutely different status of Turin clubs.
And here comes the main comparison! If Juventus can become an absolute champion of the Italian football by the number of 6 won champions titles in a row (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 и 2017) in few days, Torino had won Scudetto for the last time 41 years ago in 1976.
4 points before the championship
Prior to the matchday 35 of Serie A the table position of the leaders is as follow:
Juventus – 84, Roma – 75, Napoli – 74, Lazio – 67 …
And now simple arithmetic! Now Roma has 75 points plus maximal 12 which the football club will be able to earn during 4 left matches of the season and as a result we get 87 points.
And the team of Massimiliano Allegri has 84 already. That means that to establish new absolute record the club needs only 4 points (one winning and 0ne draw).
And now we see that these 4 points the semifinalist of the Champions League can earn during 2 nearest rounds. But in reality all seems to be much simpler. As the Saturday derby will be followed by Sunday derby - the meeting of Milan and Roma. And if Roma won’t be able to win over the hosts of the legendary arena Juventus (providing his victory at Saturday derby) becomes untouchable for the team of Luciano Spalletti.
Let us revise statistics of previous Turin derbies at home arena of Juventus: 2:1, 2:1, 1:0, 3:0, 1:0 and so on …
And what do we have now? Torino can’t fight against Juventus at its stadium at all. And that is why our choice is obvious.
Juventus – 1,45, draw – 4,82, Torino – 8,62;
