Torino vs Genoa
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 13 February 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, Turin.
Torino managed to escape the relegation zone despite being winless in the last six league outings. They played four consecutive draws, each with a different scoreline, to overtake the out-of-form Cagliari at the 17th position of the Serie A standings.
Can Il Toro finally grab their third victory of the season and further move away from the relegation scrap on Saturday afternoon when they host Genoa at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino?
Surprisingly (or not), Genoa are the most in-form team in the division at the moment. They won four and drew one of the last five league matches, conceding only one goal in the process.
Davide Ballardini’s men continued to impress last Sunday when they saw off Champions League hopefuls Napoli 2-1 at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Macedonian veteran Goran Pandev made the difference by completing a brace within the opening 25 minutes of the affair.
Torino vs Genoa Head-to-head
Torino will rely on the head to head history ahead of this tough match-up. They won six and drew one of the last seven clashes against I Rossoblu.
Il Toro bagged five goals in the last two encounters against Genoa. They took a 1-2 victory when the two teams met each other in the reverse fixture played in November last year at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
Torino vs Genoa Prediction
Torino salvaged a massive point despite having a three-goal deficit against the likes of Atalanta last weekend.
Andrea Belotti, Bremer, and Federico Bonazzoli managed to score a goal apiece and show the sky-high spirits in Torino’s dressing room. This result should guide them towards success here, despite Genoa’s strong spell of form in the last several weeks.
Torino have dominated this match-up in the last couple of years. They are in a desperate need for points here.
We can find the value in backing the home win pick at the odds of 1.95. Knowing about Genoa’s solid defensive displays of late, we don’t quite expect a goal fest in Turin.
Meantime, the Under 2.5 goals full-time bet looks decent at the odds of 1.80.
