Claudio Marchisio and Sebastian Giovinco scored second half goals as Juventus beat 10-man Torino 3-0 to rack up their 60th win in the 'Derby della Mole' on Saturday.
Juventus dominated throughout but apart from a solid performance from French midfielder Paul Pogba the bianconeri's first half display lacked real bite and even included a penalty miss from Andrea Pirlo.
Antonio Conte's side made amends in the second half, however, with Giovinco's 67th minute goal sandwiched by Marchisio's brace on 57 and 84 minutes after the expulsion of Torino defender Kamel Glik.
Torino threatened briefly, but the visitors' hopes of causing an upset suffered a blow when centre-back Kamel Glik was shown a straight red card for a tough challenge on Emanuele Giaccherini.
Ventura replaced Meggiorini with Valerio Di Cesare, but moments later Juve won a penalty, only for Pirlo to balloon it.
Minutes later Juve's persistence was rewarded when Marchisio bent to meet a right wing cross and send a bouncing header past Gillet.
Juventus were cruising and when Giovinco latched on to a square ball on the edge of the area the 'Atomic Ant' took one touch before sending an angled drive through the legs of Danilo D'Ambrosio and past Gillet for Juve's second.
Torino were suffering, and Marchisio put the finishing touches on Juve's 60th win from 135 derbies when he sent a sublime shot past Gillet from 20 metres out after the ball was chested into his path by Vucinic.
