Torino’s early-season difficulties aren’t likely to become any easier this Saturday evening as they make the short trip across the city to take on in 2020/21’s first Derby della Mole.

La Vecchia Signora have lost just one of their last 28 meetings with Il Toro, winning 21 of those, with that defeat coming through goals from and in 2015.

History points towards a tough day’s work for the Granata. They’ve equalled their previous worst-ever start to a season this term – taking just six points from their nine games so far – and the last time they started so poorly they also met in Round 10, losing 4-0 on that occasion.

Juventus: Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, De Ligt; Cuadrado, Bentancur, Rabiot, Chiesa; Kulusevski; Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Torino: Sirigu; Nkoulou, Lyanco, Rodriguez; Singo, Meite, Rincon, Linetty, Ansaldi; Belotti, Zaza.
