Higuain's stoppage time strike foils 10-man Torino

But it was still on the brink of an unprecedented sixth successive Serie A title.

Wednesday night's 2-0 victory at Monaco in the Champions League semi-final first leg was a mightily impressive performance from the Italian side, who barring an unthinkable collapse will progress to next month's final following next week's second leg.

Known for having a short-fuse as a player, it's clear not much as changed for Mihajlović.

"The derby is a kind of match-point for us".

"Then we want to win the Italian Cup against Lazio, a great side that we've already beaten twice (this season) and who we want to beat again".

And despite battling all the way, their hopes of causing an upset days after the club commemorated the 68th anniversary of the Superga air disaster - which killed the entire "Grande Torino" squad when their plane hit the Superga Basilica overlooking the city on May 4 1949 - ended when Higuain fired a low angled strike past Hart in the second minute of added-on time.

Juventus' Argentinian forward Gonzalo Gerardo Higuain vies with Torino's Italian defender Emiliano Moretti and Torino's Italian midfielder Marco Benassi during the Italian Serie A football match Juventus vs Torino FC at the Juventus stadium in Turin on May 6, 2017.

"Belotti? I've talked to him, I saw him a bit more obsessed with scoring goals".

Although the odds are stacked in favour of Juventus, who have beaten Torino three times in succession since a rare defeat at the end of the 2015 season, Torino fans can realistically dream of an upset.

Both are tied at the top on 25 goals, with Mauro Icardi (Inter Milan) on 24 and Higuain still in contention, a year after triumphing thanks to a new Serie A record of 36 goals, on 23 so far this season.

The veteran keeper's cause is significantly aided by the defence in front of him, which Conte initially shaped as a back three but is often converted to a back four by Allegri.

Juventus moved 10 points clear of Roma, which needs to at least draw at AC Milan on Sunday to avoid handing the Bianconeri the title.
