Fiorentina vs Torino
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi (Florence).
Torino’s ambitions of joining the battle for European positions next season suffered a massive blow with a disappointing 2-3 home defeat to relegation strugglers Bologna before the international break. The loss ended their three-win streak and Il Toro will now face a serious test in an attempt to return to winning ways on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Stadio Artemio Franchi to play Fiorentina.
The hosts had another underwhelming campaign in this term of Serie A, but they can be a tough nut to crack for any opposition in the league on their day. Viola currently sit 10th in the ladder, but they lost only 2 of 13 home outings so far in the season.
Fiorentina vs Torino: Head-to-head
The head to head record favours Fiorentina who won 15, drew 11 and lost 6 of 32 encounters with Il Toro.
Viola won three and drew one of last four matches against Torino.
These two sides met each other at the start of the year when Viola claimed a 0-2 victory in the last 16 round of Coppa Italia.
Fiorentina won 9, drew 5 and lost 1 of 15 ties against Il Toro.
Fiorentina vs Torino: Prediction
The hosts had a challenging schedule before the international break. They lost three and drew two of past five games across competitions, but we must say the opposition came in the likes of Inter, Atalanta (twice) and Lazio in the process.
Stefano Pioli has a deadly attacking line-up on disposal with the likes of Giovanni Simeone, Federico Chiesa and Luis Muriel. Fiorentina notched seven goals I last three home fixtures in all competitions and we expect them to create plenty openings in front of Torino’s goal on Sunday.
The visitors allowed three goals in the aforementioned defeat to Bologna in the previous round and we can hardly imagine them holding Viola’s attacking line down here.
