Midday workout as derby day draws closer

Antonio Conte looks to acclimatise his players to Sunday’s early kick-off with Torino by holding a midday session at the club’s Vinovo training centre

The Bianconeri continued their preparations for Sunday lunchtime’s Derby Della Mole against Torino with an early afternoon training session at the club’s Vinovo headquarters.

With the highly-anticipated meeting of the inter-city rivals due to commence at 12.30 CET, Antonio Conte looked to acclimatise his players to the unusual kick-off time by putting them through their paces shortly after midday following an early breakfast in the Juventus Center canteen.

The Granata have yet to taste defeat on home soil so far this season but Conte will be eager to put a stop to that particular record when he sends his men into battle at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

And with that thought in mind, the Juventus boss led his men through a tactical session which focused on the exact movements to be deployed against Giampiero Ventura’s charges.    

The defending champions will conduct their final training session tomorrow morning, with Conte due hold his pre-match press conference beforehand at 9.45 CET.
