Expert Analysis and Prediction
There’s just not a whole lot of sense in beating around the bush with this pick. Juventus hasn’t been beaten at home in 13 games this season and they have plenty of motivation as they look to keep or extend their four-point lead over Lazio, Combine that with the fact that Torino has been pretty inept on the road this season and it’s easy to come to the conclusion that Cristiano Ronaldo and company are going to win this mismatch and win it handily. Juventus wins by at least two goals!
