Torino vs Genoa
Italy – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 16 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico di Torino (Turin).
Torino and Genoa are trying to stay away from falling into the relegation group in the table.
Genoa is more prone to descend as they are just one point away from the edge. Meanwhile, the host is off the relegation edge by four points.
With their ground advantage, the home team can make use of the visitor’s poor away form to take all three points from the clash.
Torino vs Genoa Match preview
Torino has only one win in their last five fixtures in the campaign.
The 3-1 loss on the road against Inter Milan last time out in the league marked their fourth loss within the last five matches. Their last five games in the schedule have seen both teams score.
The host has only one loss in their last four clashes at home. They defeated Brescia in their previous attempt at home with a 3-1 score on the board.
After five winless games in the campaign lately, Genoa bagged the win in their last match at home against SPAL with a 2-0 clean sheet win.
Despite coming on the back of a win, their comforts at home will not apply on the road.
Having won only two of their last ten away games in the campaign, the odds are against the traveling side in the match and the host will exploit the latter’s poor away form.
