this should not be a very difficult game although we should not take it for granted that it is a win for us!!!

we did demolish them 4-0 in the first leg, and they are going through a terrible period at the moment!!

but they will be fighting because it is the derby and because they need any point they can get their hand on!

I think this game will be more challenging than some of you guys are making it out to be, and this is a period in which we cannot afford to drop any points with Inter only one game behind us.

Torino are rock bottom and we are on top.

it will still be a tough game, but juve should win without any probs.

Torino's attack sucks!!

although the derby can sometimes be unpredictable! (3-0 first half! 3-3 full time) like last season

i don't think we will face alot of trouble this game!

i dont think it will be that chalenging FAHAD.
I think you meant -Fantasista- (DP's_Apprentice) ;)

About the derby it will be played after 2 weeks (next week is for Euro 2004 qualifier matches) .. so I think it's too soon to start talking about it .. but I hope our slightly injured/unfit players a la Del piero/Treze get back soon .. not to forget Di Vaio who can also play at the left of midfield .. I think by then they will all be back (including Conte) :cool:

if anyone saw Torino's last match against Perugia, they were very determind to win that game & they did win with lot of spirit , so don't expect them to make life easy for us in this match. Juve must play with full determination cause it's not that easy like some people here are talking about .

That's true .. at this stage all matches are going to be difficult as the small teams will try hardly to avoid relegation, the mid-table teams would like to push for UEFA Cup and Champions League spots whereas the big 3 teams will be battling it out for the Scudetto ..


Anyway, Torino have recently improved and I saw highlights from their last match against Perugia (2-1) the other week .. Ferrante was dangerous at the attack whereas GK Luca Bucci - who is a close friend of Del Piero - was also impressive ..


It remains to be seen what players will be at Lippi's disposal after the international matches .. but I reckon Lippi won't go for a full-strength line-up .. keeping an eye on the midweek Champions League QF match against Barca ..


Torino - without any doubts - will double their efforts against us but we should match that with our own grit and determenation to secure the much sought after 3 points .. hoping that both Inter and Milan drop points against Roma and Parma respectively to put us firmly in the driving seat .. those 2 teams will also face each other the week after giving us even more space to breath ...

we cant afford to drops points against teams like this.

i think our seconds should be able to win this game.

CL IMO the key to concentrate on.
