Manuel Locatelli invented another precious Juventus goal to continue the winning streak in the 1-0 Derby della Mole at Turin.
After a bad start to the season, the bianconeri entered this match against city rivals with three wins in a row in all competitions.
Wednesday’s Champions League triumph at home against Chelsea holders was a highlight, but it looked like Juve’s momentum would be controlled as the last game before the national team break would remain goalless towards the finals. .
Locatelli – whose first goal for the club proved decisive against Sampdoria in Juve’s previous league match – scored a goal four minutes from time, reward for a much improved second half and enough to bring Massimiliano Allegri’s men in eighth place.
