Juventus have historically enjoyed success against their inter-city rivals and are currently in the midst of an unbeaten streak in all league meetings since 1995.
From the 67 previous derby matches contested away from home in the championship, the Bianconeri have a significant advantage in terms of goals scored (89-72) over the course of their 26 wins, 23 draws and 18 defeats.
However, the record in April meetings hosted by the Granata is much more evenly poised, with Juve registering a solitary victory, four draws and two losses across the seven meetings.
The two defeats came in 1942 (2-1) and 1992 (2-0), while the four stalemates took place in 1955 (2-2), 1966 (0-0), 1977 (1-1) and1987 (1-1).
In fact, the 1977 derby saw first play second on the last matchday of the season, an encounter which produced one of the most dramatic Serie A finishes in recent times.
The Bianconeri were leading by one point in the table and, after losing the last four derby meetings, needed to draw or win to secure a 17th Scudetto title. Franco Causio put Juve in front early on in the piece but Paolino Pulici equalised moments later to set Juve nerves jangling. However, there were no further goals and the result saw Giovanni Trapattoni’s side finish on 51 points, while Torino fell agonisingly short on 50.
The only Juventus success during meetings in April came in 1996. The hosts took the advantage through Ruggiero Rizzitelli on the half hour mark. However, a Sean Sogliano own goal restored level pegging moments after the interval and Gianluca Vialli netted 20 minutes later to seal an important victory for the Bianconeri.
The end of that season saw Torino demoted to Serie B while Marcello Lippi’s Juventus finished in second place and also went on to lift the Champions League trophy after overcoming Ajax in a nail-biting penalty shootout.
