Torino vs Juve: Can Dybala impact derby outcome?

Torino vs Juventus: Can Dybala’s return influence derby outcome?

February 17, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Argentine will be in the mix of things in the derby after being sidelined for over a month with injury.

Juventus failed to follow up their Serie A victory over Fiorentina last weekend with a consecutive win when Spurs came to town in mid-week. Having been put two goals ahead inside the first 10 minutes of proceedings by Pjanic and Higuain, the Bianconeri was pinned back via Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen’s second-half strikes.

Although a tougher second-leg game awaits at Wembley, the Old Ladies have an impending crucial game against cross-town rivals Torino which needs to be addressed first. The current Serie A title holders are hotly pursuing Maurizio Sarri’s Napoli in the race to top-spot, and an unfavorable result in Turin will undoubtedly have a huge bearing on the final outcome of the league. As things stand, just a point separates both clubs after 24 games.

Heading into Sunday's Derby della Mole, Massimiliano Allegri’s side will be greatly boosted by the return of Paulo Dybala. Before getting injured, La Joya managed to bag 14 goals and three assists in 19 Serie A matches of which he started 14. The 24-year-old forward’s scoring frequency stands at a goal every 92 minutes and has an average of 2.9 shots per game, according to SofaScore.

Dybala’s return to full fitness might have already caused a few heads in the Torino camp to turn considering the role he played in their last encounter with the Old Ladies. The former Palermo starlet inspired Allegri’s men to a 4:0 victory with his brace back in September 2017.

At the moment Juventus’ win count in the Derby della Mole stands at 17 in 23, with five draws and one defeat making up the remainder. Nonetheless, despite being undisputed favorites prior to the clash, a tricky test may await them at the Stadio Olimpico.

Torino is currently unbeaten in five games (W3, D2) since Walter Mazzarri took over the reins from Sinisa Mihajlovic. That withstanding, La Granata has scored 10 goals and has conceded just two in those games. Will Dybala’s return be enough to halt Seria A’s 8th-placed side’s auspicious streak?
