AS Roma vs Torino
Italy Serie A
Date: Thursday, 17 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
AS Roma have returned to winning ways in Serie A in big style last Sunday. La Lupa demolished Bologna on the road and won the match 5-1! Paulo Fonseca’s squad scored all goals in the first half thanks to five different goalscorers. That victory helped them keep 6th place, and additional progress can be made this Thursday at home venue versus table strugglers Torino.
Table leaders AC Milan are only six points away from AS Roma, so the race is still pretty much open. Visitors are one of the biggest disappointments this season, collecting only six points and sitting in the relegation zone. Their expectations are surely low from this trip. The current price on home win is only 1.40.
Roma vs Torino Head-to-head
Not a single of last ten encounters between Roma and Torino ended without winner. La Lupa lost the home fixture to Bulls last season quite surprisingly 0-2, but got their revenge at Grande Olimpico Stadium with a 3-2 win.
As expected, all-time stats are going in favour of Roma who have 23 victories, nine draws and only five losses to Torino.
A total of 57 goals were scored in 19 duels at Olimpico, which averages exactly 3.00 per match.
Roma vs Torino Prediction
If you were not following the news and Europa League results, AS Roma have lost to CSKA Sofia in Bulgaria recently 1-3.
However, starting lineup used by Fonseca was mixed up completely as he left all key players to rest in Italy. It turned out that was a good move, as squad bagged five goals against Bologna.
Edin Dzeko was one of the scorers once again, showing that recent injury didn’t left any negative effect on his efficiency.
La Lupa are one out of three teams which didn’t suffer one single defeat at home, currently being at three wins and two draws.
Torino have awful stats on the road, but they are very consistent when it comes to scoring, bagging eight goals in five matches. This said, we see good value in backing home win & BTTS option.
