Statistics and interesting facts before Turin


Turin and Juventus will face each other for the 153rd time in their history on Saturday, according to the Old Lady’s official site.

In those encounters, the Bianconeri have won 73 times, with their rivals from crosstown having won only 35 times. In contrast, 44 matches ended in a draw.

Moreover, Juventus has often found the bottom of the net against the Granata. In fact, they’ve managed to score at least one goal in the last 20 Serie A encounters against Toro. The last time the Old Lady failed to score in a derby was in February 2008. The game ended in a dead end.

On another note, the source describes Juve as the ultimate scarecrow for Turin. Of the teams the Granata have faced more than 10 times in the new century, they have found the least success against the Bianconeri. Turin has won only once in the new millennium (in April 2015).

A victory for Juventus on Saturday would mark Leonardo Bonucci’s 250th Serie A victory. Only three other active players exceeded that number – Samir Handanovic (252), Giorgio Chiellini (254) and Gianluigi Buffon (396).

Finally, Juan Cuadrado could be the player to watch. The Colombian has contributed four goals in his last three appearances against Turin – scoring one goal and providing three assists for his teammates.
