Torino vs Fiorentina
Date: Sunday, 13th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 14:00/15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico di Torino (Turin).
There is only a point between these two sides in the Serie A table. I hope it will be close like that when they meet in the Italian Cup on Sunday at Turin.
The Bulls has had an average season in the league so far. With 27 points they can still make it to a top-4 spot and play in Europe next year. They have also been good at scoring with 24 goals in 19 games. At present they are on a 3 match unbeaten run and have scored in all those 3 matches.
The team from Turin has conceded in their recent 3 matches across all competitions. At home, they won 3 and lost 2 of their previous 5 games. In 3 of those matches over 2.5 goals were scored in total as well.
This will be their third match in the Cup, with the previous games being wins against Cosenza and Sudtirol without conceding even a goal. Fiorentina is their literally their first real opposition in the Coppa Italia this year.
In their first match in the Cup, Fiorentina will face Torino in the aim to secure one of the last 8 spots of the competition. They have been unbeaten in 4 of their last 5 matches in the league and under 2.5 goals were scored in the most recent 3 games as well.
The Purple are also unbeaten in the last 6 matches on the road of which they won only one game. All but one game in that period had less than 2.5 goals in total.
We can see a great game as two strong teams from the top tier of Italian club football face each other for cup glory.
