The encounter against Juventus who are packed full with superstars like, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and a host of others will be a huge test of his ability to compete side by side with some of the world’s football’s top stars.
Aina has made 13 league appearances for Torino this season from the left – wing back position.
He was part of the 24- man squad named by Torino manager, Walter Mazzari on Friday for the game.
Juventus top the Serie A standings with 43 points from 15 matches , while Torino occupy sixth position with 22 points.
In another Serie A game, Aina’s international teammate, William Troost-Ekong and his Udinese mates will be up against Inter Milan in an away clash at the Giuseppe Meaza Stadium, Milan.
