Juve's previous league outing was a 1-0 victory over rival Inter, and Ronaldo hopes to give the fans another derby win to celebrate.

"One of the kit managers said to me, 'Please, you have to win, otherwise my grandmother…'" Ronaldo told Tuttosport.

"I realised that Juventus fans refuse to lose two matches: against Inter and Torino.

"Losing is always bad, I don't like it. A derby is always a great occasion and we have to win.

"I'm calm because I know the potential of the team. We have very important games to play."
