The Bianconeri were looking to bounce back from their midweek disappointment in the Champions League after being eliminated by Bayern Munich after extra-time in Bavaria.

However, Massimiliano Allegri’s side showed no signs of fatigue in the derby, with Pogba striking first to give them the advantage in a highly-charged encounter.

Sami Khedira added a second with a magical solo effort, while a double from substitute Alvaro Morata made the result safe after Andrea Belotti had threatened to inspire a Torino comeback with his penalty early in the second half.

Nevertheless, Juve marched on and claimed all three points to move six points ahead of Napoli, with the Partenopei taking on Genoa later on Sunday.

The pressure will certainly be on Maurizio Sarri and his men to keep up the pace at the top of the table, with Juve winning a staggering 19 out of their last 20 league games.

That in turn has seen them surpass their Scudetto rivals, and with just eight games remaining after this weekend, it is certainly shaping up to be a thrilling conclusion to the campaign with Juve looking for their fifth consecutive league triumph.
