Benevento vs Torino
Italy – Serie A
Date: Friday, 22 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito.
The Sorcerers are placed in the mid-table. However, that’s majorly due to their performances early in the season. As of now, they are struggling to post points on the board, and they have been conceding in huge numbers lately.
They are at home this Friday, but that does not seem to amount to much, since the team has not been that impressive at this stadium at all, all through this campaign.
Meanwhile, the Maroons are placed in the relegation zone, and have been in the midst of problems right from the start of the season. They have won just twice this whole season, and one of these wins had come against the 19th placed Parma.
Moreover, only two other teams in the entire Italian top flight have even conceded more goals than them this season.
Considering these factors, expect these two teams to produce a goal-fest this weekend at the Stadio Ciro Vigorito.
Benevento vs Torino: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Davide Nicola’s men recorded a 3-0 win the last time these two locked horns at this venue.
- They have a 100% winning record against this rival this past decade.
- They have posted a combined scorecard of 4-0 from the past two clashes.
- The hosts are yet to find the back of the net at this ground after 2010.
Benevento vs Torino Prediction
Filippo Inzaghi’s men lost 4-1 on the road the last match-day, against Crotone. In the meantime, the Maroons were held to a goalless draw the past game week at home, by Spezia.
Going on, the Sorcerers were winless in 12 of their previous 16 overall match-ups, and they are on a two-game losing run as well – conceding eight goals in the process. They have also won just twice this whole season at home, and just once since October.
They have also conceded two or more goals in five of their last eight appearances at home.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in ten of their past eleven overall fixtures, and the sole victory during this period had come against the 19th placed Parma.
And shockingly, barring this Parma match-up, Nicola’s men last kept a clean sheet away from home back in January of 2020.
By the looks of things, both of these teams are defensively struggling at the moment, and on top of that, they are also under pressure to post points on the board. By the looks of things, it seems like the perfect opportunity for a goal-fest this Friday.
