Juventus thrills out of victory over Torino 1-0

Manuel Locatelli scored late to give Juventus a 1-0 win over Torino in the Turin derby, extending their winning streak to four games in all competitions and keeping a clean sheet in Serie A for the first time in seven months. With four minutes remaining, the Italy international scored his second consecutive league goal, lifting Juve to eighth place with 11 points, three clear of their 11th-placed opponents.

Torino dominated the first half, with Juve failing to record a shot on goal. However, Allegri's side improved after the interval, with Alex Sandro's header necessitating a good save from Vanja Milinkovic-Savic before Locatelli's late winner. Ivan Juric's team struggled to threaten Wojciech Szczesny's goal, while Juventus kept things tight defensively to stop a run of 20 consecutive Serie A defeats dating back to March. Although Locatelli's second goal for Juventus caused wild celebrations, the 23-year-old admitted that it came at a price.
