Commentary

Now though, it is a two-week break - and for several players, it is time to get back to the pursuit of World Cup qualification. Both sides will be back in a fortnight - but until then, thank you and have a good weekend!
Massimiliano Allegri though has spun this one around over the past few weeks, with success at home and in Europe, to revive Juventus' hopes. There is a long way to go, of course, and they could have come away with just a point today - but they've snatched a win and that's all that matters.
Ivan Juric will have a lot to think on - and a long time to too, given the looming two-week lack of club football. His side deserved more than an empty hand at the end - but such is the cruelty of sport.
Manuel Locatelli rides to the rescue of the Bianconeri to break hearts across the city in Turin - it is Juventus who take bragging rights in their derby clash with Torino! The hosts will be crushed, having gone blow-for-blow for so long - but it is their visitors who snatch three points late in the day. Full-time, it finishes Torino 0-1 Juventus.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: TORINO 0-1 JUVENTUS
90' + 2' Szczesny drops on the ball floated into his box. It could well be the last chance for Torino there.
90' There is going to be four added minutes in this one.
Kaio Jorge
F. Chiesa
89' Kaio Jorge replaces Federico Chiesa in Juventus' latest change.
88' Oh, to be in the Torino dugout there. They finished the first half as the better side but haven't found their reward - and Juventus have duly grown back into this one to snatch the three points. This will sting in particular.
M. Locatelli
Goal
86' GOAL! MANUEL LOCATELLI MIGHT HAVE WON IT FOR JUVENTUS! 1-0! What a finish that is to put the Bianconeri in front too! The ball is squared in by Federico Chiesa after shrugging off the defenders, and he is there to rifle a cracking low finish home in at the right corner. Torino's hearts may have just been broken.
F. Chiesa
Assist
86' Federico Chiesa gets the assist and it is his work shrugging off defenders there to tip the ball in that earns him that too. Top drawer stuff.
T. Rincón
J. Brekalo
84' Tomas Rincon replaces Josip Brekalo in Torino's latest change.
G. Chiellini
Yellow Card
82' Chiellini gets booked now though after he comes crashing in on Baselli with a late challenge. He protests but he can have no argument.
82' Ansaldi saves Torino's bacon now after Rabiot squares dangerously inside and then the hosts weather the subsequent corner too. There is definitely something in the air they can sniff.
D. Kulusevski
F. Bernardeschi
80' Dejan Kulusevski replaces Federico Bernardeschi in Juventus' latest change.
79' The fluid press that marked out the early parts of this match has fled the coop now - it is all a little more ragged and hard. But both sides clearly think there could be a winner in this.
D. Baselli
A. Sanabria
77'  Daniele Baselli replaces Antonio Sanabria in Torino's latest swap.
76' Movement on the Torino bench suggests that there is going to be another change shortly as the last act of this game approaches.
74' Juan Cuadrado has been involved in four goals in his last three Serie A games against Torino (one goal, three assists), more than any other Juventus’ player in the “Derby della Mole” since 2020.
72' Linetty may have just ridden to the rescue for that dreaded momentum though - he gets a shot off, even if it is blocked, and Torino prick up their ears. That's more like it.
71' Locatelli! A little more dip on that missile of a finish and he would have buried it in the top-right corner. Momentum feels like it is with the visitors right now.
68' Whisper it quietly, but as the noise lessens inside the stadium, the pendulum is swinging back towards Juventus. Torino could do with a blockbuster play to get this one back on side.
K. Linetty
S. Lukić
66' Karol Linetty replaces Sasa Lukic in Torino's second change.
C. Ansaldi
O. Aina
65' Cristian Ansaldi replaces Ola Aina in Torino's first change.
R. Mandragora
Yellow Card
65' The yellow cards are flying right now - and Rolando Mandragora is the latest one in the book now after he fells Locatelli.
64' Leonardo Bonucci could win his 250th Serie A match: the Juventus defender has already scored and assisted a league goal this season, last doing so in the 2015-16 campaign.
S. Lukić
Yellow Card
62' Lukic picks up a booking now as he absolutely scythes in on Sandro. The referee does not hesitate in producing a card for that one.
61' Juventus are up to the task again however and clear their lines easily enough.
60' Torino draw the free-kick just outside the Bianconeri box now, for a casual foul. Juve protest but it will stand...
58' The energy hasn't flagged seriously in this game but it has definitely clicked up a notch or two with those efforts. Both sides are squaring up to each other with a little bit more passion and aggression.
A. Sanabria
Yellow Card
56' Sanabria picks up the first booking of the game now for a lazy arm as he and De Ligt go up for a high ball. It's the first yellow card of the game.
55' Cuadrado! That's why he's been brought on for the visitors. That is a rocket of an effort fired in from outside the box - and it is a fantastic stop from Milinkovic-Savic to do justice to it too. Top of the line stuff, that.
54' What a move from Torino on the counter! Having sat under the cosh for a moment, the hosts break forth and split Juve straight down the middle. They win a corner for it and the visitors hold, just.
52' Milinkovic-Savic has not had too much to do so far - but he does now! A header from Sandro requires quick thinking and he rises to the challenge.
50' Could it be said both sides are just lacking that little bit of killer instinct here? There's been that outstanding save from Szczesny of course, but perhaps it is no surprise Juventus have switched it up in attack.
48' Torino have conceded the fewest shots in Serie A this season (47), 29 fewer than Juventus (76) – the Granata have conceded 7.8 shots per game on average this term, their best ratio in a single top-flight campaign since Opta started recording such data (2004/05).
46' We are back underway in Turin for the second half. Does either side have a breakthrough in them?
J. Cuadrado
M. Kean
46' There's going to be a change before we resume play here - Juan Cuadrado is on for Moise Kean.
Antonio Sanabria scored a brace in his only previous Serie A appearance against Juventus for Torino, having failed to find the net in each of his previous three league games against the Bianconeri for Genoa.
A sturdy revival from Torino has checked the stride of Juventus in the Turin derby - but there is nothing to split the two as they head into the shades. At half-time, it is Torino 0-0 Juventus.
45' HALF-TIME: TORINO 0-0 JUVENTUS
43' Shots at both ends! Singo sees an effort blocked before Juventus drive down the opposite end and Locatelli comes up short there too. A little spark for the Bianconeri there.
40' Torino have had twice as many shots as Juventus in this one so far. Who saw that coming?
38' Juventus have conceded in each of their last 20 Serie A games: they could equal their longest run without a single clean sheet in the competition (21 in a row between January and October 1955).
36' Brekalo has absolutely skied that shot! That has gone somewhere over the Alps, it was huge! It comes after Lukic stays down in the build-up too, though he gets no compensation for it.
35' What a stop from Szczesny that was! Pobega cracks one in and there is a moment where the goalkeeper hesitates. But then he leaps and absolutely leathers it away with his gloves.
32' Ivan Juric is pounding around his technical area like a caged lion. He is properly up for this and his side are doing him proud right now.
30' There's something a little bit industrial creeping into this one, with both sides picking up free-kicks for tackles that could be described as cynical. Referee Paolo Valeri might have a card out soon.
28' Lukic edges another header wide of the mark, this one a smidgen less threatening, and Torino continue to mount the pressure. Kean wins a free-kick to ease Juventus' worries for a moment.
26' Games like this can sometimes shift with an ebb and flow, but Juventus have not really had a sniff down the opposite end since the opening act. Chiellini's frustration is palpable in the stands.
24' Juventus have lost their last two Serie A matches played on a Saturday: they have never lost three on the bounce on this day of the week in their top-flight history.
21' Lukic with the header! That is the closest anyone has come so far, with the Torino man diverting a header beyond the far post after the ball sailed into a crowded box off the left flank.
19' The Bianconeri prove a match for the set-piece execution once more but the home crowd are enjoying what they are seeing so far.
18' Having been almost brushed aside in that first five minutes, Torino are making an excellent crack of this now. Chiellini is pressed into action once more, this time heading away a cross for a corner.
16' The set-piece sails in and Juventus' defence, guided by old warhorse Chiellini, does the job it needs to.
15' Chiesa comes in with a rushed heavy-handedness on Lukic now and Torino snap up an unexpected free-kick deep in opposition territory...
13' Torino have drawn the most Serie A matches in 2021 (13) - only Reims and Athletic Club (14 both) have drawn more in the five major European leagues during this period.
11' Better work now from the hosts and Singo loops a half-dangerous attempt over the far post after cutting in off the right, before Juventus attempt to smother them in midfield once more.
9' McKennie pulls the trigger on another wayward finish, this time from outside the box, before Juventus flick the ball around the rear. Torino try a ranged effort of their own - woefully, in the end.
7' Talk about an early storm to weather. Torino - in that deep burgundy strip - are finding themselves on the rocks and then some so far. They'll be facing a tough evening.
5' Weston McKennie! Even the USMNT starlet cannot believe he's missed that cut-back, in line with the right post where he promptly puts it into orbit. A tough start for Torino's defence.
3' It's hard to argue against Moise Kean getting out of Everton as being the best thing he ever did. He scythes forward now and slashes a finish across the face of goal, prowling with intent.
1' After some delayed preliminaries, the whistle goes and we are underway in this Serie A clash between Torino and Juventus!
The teams are out in Turin and we are moments away from kick-off.
This will be the first time Torino and Juventus will meet in Serie A with both teams on the same number of points (8) since October 2015 - a 2-1 win for the Old Lady.
Juventus have lost only one of their last 30 Serie A meetings with Torino, making this a rather one-sided affair. But that loss did come under Allegri, way back in 2015. The hosts can cling to that if they are turning to history for hope.
Subs: Leonardo Bonucci, Mattia Perin, Dejan Kulusevski, Kaio Jorge, Luca Pellegrini, Mattia De Sciglio, Arthur, Rodrigo Bentancur, Juan Cuadrado, Carlo Pinsoglio, Daniele Rugani.
JUVENTUS (4-3-3): Wojciech Szczesny; Danilo, Matthijs de Ligt, Giorgio Chiellini, Alex Sandro, Weston McKennie, Manuel Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot; Federico Chiesa, Moise Kean, Federico Bernardeschi.
Subs: Magnus Warming, Ben Kone, Karol Linetty, Mergim Vojvoda, Alessandro Buongiorno, Etrit Berisha, Cristian Ansaldi, Armando Izzo, Tomas Rincon, Daniele Baselli, Luca Gemello, Simone Verdi.
TORINO (3-4-3): Vanja Milinkovic-Savic; David Zima, Bremer, Ricardo Rodriguez; Wilfried Stephane Singo, Tommaso Pobega, Rolando Mandragora, Ola Aina; Sasa Lukic, Antonio Sanabria, Josip Brekalo.
The visitors will do without  Alvaro Morata, Paulo Dybala and Aaron Ramsey today though, with the three still on the sidelines - but Arthur does make the bench for Juventus. Koffi Djidji's red card last time out however means Torino cannot call on his services.
On the other side of the Turin derby sit Ivan Juric's hosts, who may consider themselves lucky to have escaped the drop last term. Escape it they did however - and a win over Sassuolo, plus a draw with Lazio, means they will be no pushover.
The dismal start to a second life under Massimiliano Allegri looks to have been well and truly bucked now - and it is the Bianconeri who are back to winning ways. But narrow wins suggest they still have flaws to iron out - and they will be wary of their hosts today.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of the 2021-22 Serie A campaign, as Juventus look to maintain their resurgence home and away with a trip to fellow mid-table side Torino at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
