Roma vs Torino: Prediction

AS Roma’s fine run of form continued as they smashed Fiorentina 4-1 at the hostile Artemio Franchi. Paulo Fonseca’s men have won seven of their last nine league matches and scored 21 goals during that stretch. With 35 points on the board, they’re four points clear of fifth-placed Atalanta and seven points off of Inter and Juventus.

The Giallorossi are one of the best home teams in the competition with 5 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat, scoring 2.25 goals per game, whilst conceding 1.38. Roma have won last four home fixtures.

Santon, Cristante and Zappacosta are out for the hosts, Kluivert should make the bench.

The Granata slipped to 11th place in the standings after a 1-2 home defeat at the hands of lowly SPAL.

Torino were riding a three-game unbeaten run prior to that match, beating the likes of Genoa (1-0) and Fiorentina (2-1), but Verona game (3-3), in which they shipped three goals inside 15 minutes, clearly threw them off the rails.

Walter Mazzarri’s side have registered three wins, one draw and four defeats on the road, averaging 1.63 goals scored per match and conceding 1.75.

The visiting side will be shorthanded in this one as Falque, Lyanco, Edera, Parigini and Baselli are on the sidelines and two regulars, Bremer (defender, 11 matches – 1 goal) and Ansaldi (wing-back, 13 matches – 4 goals) are suspended.

Even though Torino had two weeks to prepare for this clash, I can’t see them stopping red-hot hosts, almost at full-strength after injury crisis.

The freely-scoring Roma have netted thirteen goals vs Granata in last four Serie A matches at Olimpico and I’m positive they will win on Sunday and bag at least two goals.

With Verdi, Berenguer and Belotti in the team, I’m counting on visitors to net one as well, and that suits my 3-1 hunch.
