Torino vs Parma
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 23 February 2020
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET

The Granata, currently fourteenth in the table, will be hoping they can put an end to their losing streak on Sunday when they entertain high-flying Crociati.

Torino vs Parma: Match Preview

Torino’s dire form continued as they succumbed to their fifth consecutive Serie A defeat, going down 0-1 to AC Milan at San Siro. New boss Moreno Longo has to be happy that his players actually gave an effort. That wasn’t enough, obviously, but it bodes well for the future.

The Granata, currently fourteenth in the table, will be hoping they can put an end to their losing streak on Sunday when they entertain high-flying Crociati.

Toro have posted four wins, two draws and six losses at Olimpico, averaging 0.92 goals scored per match, whilst allowing 1.93. They have picked up six points from their last five home games (2W, 3L).

The Gialloblu’s bounced back from Lazio defeat with a narrow victory over Sassuolo in the latest Emilia-Romagna derby. Gervinho, who trained alone for a few days after trying to force through a January move to Qatari side Al-Sadd, came back with a bang as he scored the sole goal and winner.

With three wins, one draw and two defeats, Parma are eight in the six-match form table and seventh overall, tied on points with Hellas Verona but behind on goal difference.

Roberto D’Aversa’s side recorded four wins, four draws and four defeats away from Ennio Tardini, scoring 1.25 goals per match on average and conceding 1.58 in return. Parma have won three of their last six road fixtures.

Torino vs Parma: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Overall Stats (25 games): Torino 4 Wins, Parma 15 Wins, 6 Draws.
  • Torino have won only two of their twelve home games against Gialloblu’s (2-5-5).
  • On average 3.17 goals have been scored in their meeting at this venue.
  • Both teams have found the back of the net in five of the last six outings at Olimpico.
  • Roberto D’Aversa’s side won the reverse fixture 3-2 thanks to Inglese’s late winner.

Torino vs Parma: Prediction

Toro will have most of their injured players back for this one, whilst Parma remains shorthanded, without their first-choice goalkeeper, regular right-back and two influental midfielders, Antonino Barilla and Juraj Kucka. I will back the hosts on DNB market here.

Lastly, with a 2-1 or 1-1 scoreline hunch, I will take BTTS – Yes. Both teams have dangerous players up-front (Berenguer, Zaza, Belotti vs Gervinho, Kulusevki, Cornelius) and their H2H strongly supports goals on both ends. Good luck!
