Torino vs Fiorentina
Italian Serie A
Date: 21 May 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).
Torino and Fiorentina are lock on 49 points ahead of their Matchday No 36 clash on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
Unfortunately for their fans, neither outfit can secure European football for the next season through the league as the seventh-placed Atalanta are nine points away with just three games to play.
La Viola will have a shot in the Coppa Italia final where a win over Inter Milan would guarantee them a place in the UEFA Europa League next year.
We like Torino’s chances in this game, though, especially since Fiorentina had a very difficult game against Basel just three days ago on Swiss soil in the second leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League.
With nothing but pride to play for in the remaining part of the Serie A, we expect Italiano to rotate his starting XI heavily on Sunday in Turin.
Torino, on the other side, enter this match on a high after a strong performance in the 0-1 victory over relegation-threatened Verona last Sunday at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Il Toro completely dominated the game with eight shots on target on the occasion. They have claimed seven out of nine possible from the previous three league affairs, allowing just one goal in the process.
Torino vs Fiorentina Head-to-head
- This will be the third head to head meeting between the two rivals this season. They’ve had semi success with Torino winning the league clash on January 21st (0-1 on the road), just ten days before falling to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia quarterfinal (2-1).
- Overall, Il Toro have managed to win just 9 of the previous 43 encounters with Fiorentina.
- Draw was the most frequent of the outcomes in the history of the clashes in Turin, occurring on 8 occasions in the last 21 matches there.
Torino vs Fiorentina Prediction
The value is fantastic with the home win pick at the 2.25 based on the circumstances around the game. Italiano will give rest to some of his main stars on Sunday and Torino may well take advantage of it to extend their positive thread of results.
We will alternatively back Torino to keep a clean sheet at the 2.62 odds knowing they have allowed just one goal in the last three Serie A matches.
