Juve Win Turin Derby

Coming into this Turin Derby, Torino had not scored since 2002 and without a win since 1995 and this run was set to continue when Juve midfielder Paul Pogba got on the score sheet in the 54th minute for the games solitary goal.

The Turin derby started off uneventfully as both teams struggled to create any goal scoring oppportunities in the first 45 minutes.

Juve did create most of the chances but were unable to find the back of the net, with midfielder Pogba trying his luck from distance.

Torino striker Alessio Cerci is Serie A’s top goal scorer with five goals already this season did have a first-half free-kick fly just past the right hand post, but not testing Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon.

The Frenchman then scored when a Goivinco corner was crashed against the crossbar by Bonucci and the ever impressive Carlos Tevez and headed in the rebound for his first league goal of the season.

Giovinco had earlier had the best chance of the game after deft flick from strike partner Tevez to set him up, but the little Italian could not test Padelli in his first start of the season.

The Serie A champions then pushed on searching for that all important second goal with substitute Vucinic’s volley forcing a great save out of Padelli at the Stadio Olimpico.

Torino did try desperately to grab an equaliser but could hardly muster an effort at goal with Buffon not making a save for 90 minutes, and the league’s top scorer Cerci and strike partner Ciro Immobile kept quiet by the Juve defence.

Juve will be happy to have gotten their fifth win in six Serie A matches so far this season while Torino’s dismal run of derby results looks set to continue for a while.
