The 153rd Derby della Mole takes place on Saturday as old rivals Torino and Juventus lock horns in Turin.
For only the second time ever, the two clubs face each other with the same number of points. Both sides have collected eight points from their opening six Serie A matches. Torino sit one spot above the 10th-placed Juventus in the standings thanks to goal difference.
The Granata, however, are on a two-match winless run after 1-1 draws with Lazio and Venezia. Their home record is nothing to brag about either, having won one of their last five league games in Turin.
Juventus, meanwhile, have successfully bounced back from a tough start to the season. The Bianconeri have won four of their last five games and defeated Champions League holders Chelsea 1-0 midweek. With their main forwards out, Federico Chiesa and Moise Kean are expected to lead the attack.

Standings in Serie A
Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem like a good idea to side with Marko Pjaca as he is the top-scoring player for Torino in their last 6 matches. He managed to find the back of the net 2 times and will surely want to add some more goals in the Turin derby.
With Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala out, Juventus will pin their hopes on an in-form Federico Chiesa to supply the goods again.
