Torino vs Fiorentina
Italy Serie A
Date: Friday, 29 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, Turin.
Both Torino and Fiorentina have been struggling for consistency throughout the whole season. They have collected seven wins combined ahead of the 20th round clash at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
The hosts can’t quite afford a failure while sitting right on the brink of the red zone. They managed no more than two wins in 19 Serie A rounds so far.
The start of the year did not bring anything new for Il Toro fans who have seen their team failing to find the net in three successive matches before the last weekend’s 2-2 draw at Benevento.
If Torino were playing hot and cold, what should we say for Fiorentina? Viola suffered a catastrophic 6-0 defeat to Napoli two weeks ago but found the way to bounce back against the league strugglers Crotone on Saturday.
Giacomo Bonaventura and Dusan Vlahovic contributed to a 2-1 victory, while Franck Ribery came up with a decent display as well.
Torino vs Fiorentina Head-to-head
Fiorentina have been much more successful in the history of head to head encounters with Il Toro. Viola won 17 and lost only 7 of 36 meetings with Torino.
Fiorentina will head into this tie on the back of two straight clean sheet victories over Il Toro. The run includes this season’s 1-0 win in September at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Just one of the last six head to head encounters has seen three or more goals scored.
Torino vs Fiorentina Prediction
If we ignore the last weekend’s draw with Benevento, Torino have been struggling for goals lately. They have failed to score in three subsequent matches beforehand. Knowing that just one of the last six head to head games has seen at least three goals, we are tempted to go for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 1.72.
The match has a big importance for both outfits, especially Torino who will likely be dropped to the danger area with a defeat here. Viola did not score in three of the last five away matches in the league. We kind of see this as a low-scoring draw. Braver tipsters can the 1-1 correct score pick at the 6.00 odds.
