Torino vs Parma
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Saturday 10 November 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Turin).
Torino have been slowly and steadily climbing the table, and the Granata will hope to pick up another three points as they welcome a stumbling Parma side to the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday afternoon.
The hosts come into this game unbeaten in their last five fixtures, and have risen to seventh spot in the table. Another positive result would see them overtake Sassuolo, who have managed to still hang around in the European football spots despite some bumps in the road – and that’s thanks to an overall strong start from the Neroverdi.
Sampdoria, another team who had hoped to compete for Europa League football, have started to fade away, whilst Atalanta have started to spring to life after a terrible start, so Torino will naturally want to rack up as many points as possible before the Christmas holiday rolls around.
As for Parma, they will be really bitterly frustrated they didn’t do better against Frosinone, as that was a golden chance for the Crociati to pick up all three points. Losing to Lazio was hardly a shock, but failing to score against 19th-placed Frosinone will feel like a huge disappointment. The visitors will hope to use this game to turn things around, but they are without a goal in over 300 minutes.

Torino vs Parma: Prediction
Gervinho has hit a rough patch after a bright start and Parma have struggled overall, failing to score in their last three games. A scoreless draw with 19th-placed Frosinone was certainly the worst of the three and they could really struggle yet again to get a result here against a Torino side that are growing in confidence, despite
