SPAL vs Torino
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 23 December 2017
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara).
SPAL grabbed their third win of the season last weekend when they saw off fellow newcomers Benevento 1-2 on the road. They are now on the brink of the safe zone after spending most of the campaign in the danger area and a result here could make their holidays much happier.
Nonetheless, getting the spoils against Torino will be quite a challenging task for Leonardo Semplici and his men. The quality is certainly with the Bulls who seem to have found the winning formula over the last couple of matches. They’ll come into this high on confidence after beating Roma in the last 16 round of Coppa Italia on Wednesday.
It was the second win in the capital in just ten days for Sinisa Mihajlovic and his men who have previously managed to dispatch Lazio 1-3 at Stadio Olimpico. The Serbian manager has a super strong potential in the final third and his forwards seem to be enjoying a fine spell of form after netting six goals in matches with the Italian heavyweights (Lazio, Napoli and Roma).
Semplici also has an interesting attacking lineup led by Serie A veteran Sergio Floccari. Mirko Antenucci has been theirs tar man in the last term of Serie B but he is yet to reach his full potential in the top flight, while the current top scorer is Alberto Paloschi who used to be dominant four years who when he netted 13 goals in Chievo’s shirt in Serie A.
