Juve's less illustrious neighbours currently prop up the rest of Serie A while Marcello Lippi's squad look down on all others from their perch at the top.
Striker Ferrante says the players are hoping to give the fans something to salvage from their disappointing campaign.
He said: "It's probably too late for us to save our season and a derby win will still probably not be enough.
"The supporters until now have been fantastic but their patience has a limit. We know this and that is why we mustn't fail in our efforts against Juve.
"As for salvation, we have a job to do and we must keep at least trying until the end.
"Our biggest problem is our failure to beat the teams around us when we've played them at home. If you want to save yourself, these are the games you have to win.
"On the pitch against Juve, you will see a different Torino from our first game against them. It's impossible to get any worse. And it's a debt we owe our supporters."
The striker, who is still carrying a back injury, said on his own future: "I've a contract that binds me to Torino and I feel good here.
"It's the club that will decide if I go but the possibility of playing in Serie B doesn't worry me."
