Torino vs Bologna
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 20 December 2020
Kick-Off at 11.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande, Torino.
Torino’s struggles continue week by week, as team is still stuck in the relegation zone after twelve rounds. The Bulls definitely didn’t expect this slow to the new Serie A campaign. Despite most recent losses, form has improved a lot in comparison to opening weeks. Can they end the bad run and secure second victory, first at home this season?
Torino welcomes Bologna, who are also in bad shape at the moment. Sinisha Mihajovic’s squad got humiliated last weekend at home venue with a 1-5 loss to AS Roma. The mid-week clash versus Spezia wasn’t any better, as they avoided loss in the last second of the match. Interestingly, odds offered on home and away win for Saturday’s encounter are the same at this moment 2.60.

Torino vs Bologna Prediction
Marco Giampaolo might easily lose his job as Torino’s head manager unless results improve in the next couple of weeks. Andrea Belotti is once again sitting at the top of club’s goalscoring charts, bagging eight goals in ten appearances. He will definitely need more support from Zaza and Verdo who scored only one goal combined. The only opponent Bulls managed to beat this season was Genoa on the road 2-1. Seven out of eleven games ended as losses.
Bologna are in much better situation when it comes to standings, being 13th with 13 points. Their back line is doing equally bad as Torino’s though, conceding 24 goals in 12 games. Team was in a bad spot on Wednesday night, being two goals behind against Spezia. Dominguez and Musa Barrow orchestrated a comeback in the last 20 minutes. We see good value in backing Torino to win this clash. Mihajlovic’s team is in a big decline, plus they were defeated in 66% of games on the road.
