The Granata proved to be the league’s most unpredictable team as they bounced back from SPAL disappointment to beat favored Roma 2-0 at the Stadio Olimpico. Walter Mazzarri’s side are looking good nowadays having won three of their last five league matches.

Baselli (15 games, 0 goals), Lyanco (6/0) and Ansaldi (13/4) are on the treatment table.
Bologna failed to land third win on the trot, but their unbeaten stretch remains intact and extended as they salvaged a point vs Fiorentina thanks to Riccardo Oroslini’s last-minute equalizer.

The Veltri are in solid run of form having claimed ten points from last five league outings and will be hoping to land their third consecutive road victory this weekened. With 23 points to their name, they’re sitting at 10th place, one point behind their next opponent.

Torino (3-5-2): Sirigu – Izzo, Bremer, Nkoulou – Aina, D.Silvestri, Rincon, Lukic – Berenguer, Verdi – Belotti.

Bologna (4-2-3-1): Skorupski – Denswil, Tomiyasu, Bani, Danilo – Poli, Medel – Sansone, Orsolini, Soriano – Palacio.

Bologna vs Torino: Prediction

Goals on both ends are pretty much guaranteed with Bologna as fifteen of their eighteen league matches had BTTS – Yes and the same bet landed in 67 percent of Torino’s games at Olimpico this season. That will be my main pick here.

It appears that we need a crystal ball to predict the outcome of Granata’s games, so I will skip the 1X2 market this time and go with over 2.5 as it suits my 2-1 or 2-2 hunch.

We’ve seen nine goals in last three il Toro’s home games and three goals or more have been scored in eleven of the last twelve Veltri’s fixtures.
