Dusan Vlahovic’s sixth league goal of the season earned Juventus victory at city rivals Torino to ease the pressure on manager Massimiliano Allegri.
The 22-year-old Serbia striker tapped home a Danilo knock-down from Juan Cuadrado’s 74th-minute corner to seal victory in a one-sided Turin derby.
Just a fourth league win this season lifted Juventus to seventh in Serie A.
It followed a Champions League defeat by Maccabi Haifa that left them unlikely to reach the knockout stages.
Vlahovic’s close-range finish was all that Juventus deserved after Torino goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic produced a string of fine saves to keep the score level.
Despite the derby win, Allegri, who led Juventus to five consecutive Serie A titles from 2015 to 2019 in his first stint as manager, will continue to face questions after a run of poor results since returning in 2021.
They finished fourth last season and went into the Torino game 10 points behind current leaders Napoli.
