Rabiot expects 'demanding' Turin derby

Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot expects a ‘demanding’ test against Torino in the Derby della Mole. ‘In order to keep growing, we must win at all costs’.

The French midfielder was rested in the 3-0 win over Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Rabiot is now eager to get back in action and continue with another success in Serie A this weekend.

“It will be a demanding and difficult match,” Rabiot told Sky Sport Italia. “They are in a difficult moment and winning would mean they’ll restart.

“For us, on the other hand, it would be important to claim another win after the good performance in the Champions League.”

The Derby della Mole will go behind closed doors but Rabiot claimed the importance of the match will be felt even in an empty Allianz Stadium.

“The history of this match means that, even without fans, it’s a very important game,” he added. “We must be careful, because they will try to win.

“In order to keep growing, we must win at all costs.”

The 25-year-old played in the 4-1 win over Torino last season and has appeared eight times in Serie A this term, starting six times under new coach Andrea Pirlo.
