Following their two wins in two games, Juventus started their derby against Torino with confidence, knowing they would achieve a three-game winning streak with a victory.
Dusan Vlahovic latched onto the ball for the game’s first real chance, but the Serbian shot wide.
Andrea Cambiaso then set up Manuel Locatelli to open the scoring, but he also could not find the target.
Vlahovic had another chance to test the Torino goalkeeper, but Vanja Milinkovic-Savic saved well from his fellow countryman. That was better from the striker.

Max Allegri responded to that by bringing on Kenan Yildiz and Samuel Iling-Junior for Federico Chiesa and Filip Kostic.
Torino began to pressure Juventus, and Cambiaso was cautioned for tripping a Torino player.

Allegri made some bold changes, removing Vlahovic and Gatti for Alex Sandro and Moise Kean. Can any of them be the hero tonight?
Both teams kept threatening each other but were frustrated, as Szczesny went down following an elbow from a Torino player who wanted to head the ball, and the game was halted so that he could get treatment.
That decision angered Ivan Juric,…
