It's the Derby della Mole on Saturday as in-form Juventus take on cross-city rivals Torino at the Allianz Stadium.

Despite their defeat in the Coppa Italia final, Maurizio Sarri's side have won all three of their Serie A games post-lockdown and, following Lazio's defeat to Atalanta last week, appear to be pole position to win their ninth consecutive Scudetto.

Team News

Merih Demiral's anterior cruciate ligament injury - which has kept him out since January - means he won't be available for selection for Juventus, while Sami Khedira's season is likely over following a muscle injury.

Mattia De Sciglio is also absent through injury, but Alex Sandro could return to the squad. Captain Giorgio Chiellini - who has been out for the majority of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury - is aiming to return for the derby, though he could be forced to wait until Juventus's clash with Milan on 7 July.

Torino have a clean bill of health - other than the long-term injury to midfielder Daniele Baselli, which is expected to keep him out until December.

Predicted Lineups

Juventus: Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Bonucci, Matuidi; Pjanic, Rabiot, Bentancur; Bernardeschi, Dybala, Ronaldo

Torino: Sirigu: N'Koulou, Bremer, Izzo; De Silvestri, Lukic, Meite, Rincon, Aina; Belotti, Verdi

Recent Form

Juventus came in for criticism for their performances in the Coppa Italia post-lockdown, ultimately losing the final on penalties to Napoli.

But Maurizio Sarri's side appear to be back to their best now, having won all three of their league games following Serie A's resumption. Their home form has been stellar all season, with La Vecchia Signora currently unbeaten at the Allianz Stadium during 2019/20 .

Torino, on the other hand, have endured a torrid season. Poor form saw the dismissal of Walter Mazzarri in February and his replacement, Moreno Longo, hasn't fared any better. Of the seven games he's overseen so far, five of those have ended in defeat - with just a solitary win picked up.

Here's a look at how the Turinese clubs have performed in their last five games.

Juventus

Genoa 1-3 Juventus (30/6)
Juventus 4-0 Lecce (26/6)
Bologna 0-2 Juventus (22/6)
Napoli 0-0 Juventus (17/6)
Juventus 0-0 Milan (12/6)

Torino

Torino 1-2 Lazio (30/6)
Cagliari 4-2 Torino (27/6)
Torino 1-0 Udinese (23/6)
Torino 1-1 Parma (20/6)
Napoli 2-1 Torino (29/2)

Taking into account the obvious disparity in the quality between the two sides - and the fact Juventus are unbeaten at home and Torino have been poor all season - Maurizio Sarri's side are the firm favourites in this Derby della Mole clash.

Failure to win would be embarrassing for La Vecchia Signora, but they should have no trouble cruising to a comprehensive win.

Prediction: Juventus 3-0 Torino
