Genoa vs Torino
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 20th April 2019

Venue: Stadio Luigi Ferraris (Janov).
Torino lies just below the European spots, with three points to make up from the next six games.

On top of that, at this crucial juncture of the season, the team has posted just a single point on the board from the last four matches. With Torino determined to get to Europe, things might get tough for the hosts this Saturday.
