As part of one of the matches of the next round of the Italian championship, the players of Torino and Lazio will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this game.
The Bulls have shown very weak results in the last few seasons, teetering on the verge of relegation to Serie B. In the summer, Ivan Yurich joined the team, who will have to take Squadra Granata to a new level. It is worth noting that the specialist immediately began to earn his bread and instilled a very nice football in the team. In the first round, the Bulls lost to Atalanta on their own field (1: 2), but they looked better than their opponent in the game. There was a similar scenario in the match with Fiorentina. In the last meetings, the Torino team were able to turn their luck around, having managed to win over Salernitana and Sassuolo. The victories allowed the team to rise to the 10th place in the standings.
The Lazio players, like today's opponent, experienced a change of head coach in the summer. Maurizio Sarri, who replaced Simone Inzaghi, was able to show the result immediately. The Eagles showed powerful football in the first matches, having managed to confidently defeat Empoli and Spezia. However, there were problems in meetings with serious rivals. First, the team from Rome lost to Milan at the San Siro, after which they miraculously escaped in a meeting with Cagliari at the Olimpico. At the moment, Laziale are on the 8th line in the standings.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Belotti (finger), Izzo (calf injury), Prat (injury), Edera (injury) – all "Torino". Adepkanje (knee) – Lazio.
- Under question:
- Verdi (calf injury), Zaza (injury) – both "Torino". Zaccagni (injury) – Lazio.
Statistics and figures:
- Lazio is the favorite of the meeting;
- "Torino" won 2 victories in a row;
- The Romans cannot win in 3 meetings in a row;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 0: 0;
- Lazio won 3 of the previous 5 meetings against Torino.
Perhaps, I will not risk a clean victory for Lazio, but to bet on the victory of the Eagles through a zero head start is a good option, given the fact that the bookmakers give a quote for this event. Most likely, the Eagles will show a good game and take away 3 points from Turin.
