Bragging rights are at stake as Juventus look to complete the double over Torino in the Derby della Mole in Serie A this season.

The Old Lady have not tasted defeat against their Turin rivals since 2015 and they will be keen to consolidate fourth place in the league.

Danilo's stoppage time leveller away to Atalanta last time out prevented Massimiliano Allegri's side from tumbling out of the Champions League positions, with Juventus also preparing for a Champions League last 16 showdown with Villarreal in midweek.

Here's how the Bianconeri could line up.


Juventus predicted lineup vs Torino - Serie A

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Wojciech Szczesny (GK) - Has shaken off his early season wobbles at just the right time in the season for Juve.

Juan Cuadrado (RB) - Danilo's suspension opens the door for the Colombian's return to the starting lineup.

Matthijs de Ligt (CB) - Produced one of his most dominant performances for Juve in the 1-1 draw in Bergamo last time out.

Leonardo Bonucci (CB) - His distribution from the back remains peerless among central defenders in world football.

Alex Sandro (LB) - Should provide an attacking outlet on the left hand side as Juve look to commit men forward.


2. Midfielders

Manuel Locatelli (CM) - Just as capable operating as the deepest midfielder as he is pushing further forward.

Weston McKennie (CM) - Has enjoyed an upturn in performances in recent weeks.

Adrien Rabiot (CM) - Although he often bears the brunt of criticism from Juve fans, Allegri rates the Frenchman highly.


3. Forwards

Paulo Dybala (RW) - Delivered the pinpoint corner which Danilo nodded in to equalise against Atalanta.

Dusan Vlahovic (ST) - Scored just 13 minutes into his Juventus debut with the opener against Verona earlier this month.

Alvaro Morata (LW) - Has looked far more accomplished on the left hand side of a front three in recent weeks.
