Analysis

Gli Azzurri in their first season back up in Serie A have been impressive as they are just 2 points behind 6th place Fiorentina but 9 points clear of the drop zone.

Torino vs Empoli Prediction

Both teams were able to get on the scoresheet in 6 of the visitors’ previous 7 games. Torino has conceded nearly the same number of goals they have conceded and so expect goals from both sides.

Granata has scored across both halves in 3 consecutive games and with the away team conceding the second most goals by any team outside the relegation zone, the hosts are expected to score in both halves.
