Torino vs Sampdoria
Italian Serie A
Date: 9 November 2022, Wednesday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).
Torino snapped a three-game run across competition with a 2-1 defeat away at Bologna on Sunday afternoon.
They are now looking to return to winning ways just three days later when bottom-half strugglers Sampdoria come to visit Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
Le Samp are not pulling up any trees this season. They sit second from bottom in the Serioe A standings with just six points from the opening 13 outings.
The managerial change that occurred a month ago did little to shift the team’s fortunes around as Le Samp are once again on a losing thread under new head coach Dejan Stankovic.
Sampdoria failed to find the back of the net in back-to-back defeats to Inter Milan and Fiorentina, shipping five goals at the opposite end along the way.
The visitors could easily struggle to get their offense going here against Torino as well. Il Toro have been pretty tough to break down so far in the season under Croatian manager Ivan Juric, especially in front of the home fans.
Torino allowed just four goals in six league games in Turin this term. They have improved their offensive displays a lot of late, netting as many as eight goals in a three-win thread across competitions before the mentioned loss at Bologna on Sunday.
Torino vs Sampdoria Head-to-head
- Sampdoria lead the head to head tie by 2 wins going into the 42nd meeting with Torino.
- The teams have two wins each in the previous four head to head affairs.
- We saw at least three goals in five of the last six H2H outings.
Torino vs Sampdoria Prediction
Sampdoria have scored only six goals since the beginning of the season. Their top scorer is Filip Djuricic with two goals to his name this term. We are very much tempted to back Torino to win to nil at the odds of 2.50 here.
Since Il Toro have indeed improved their overall displays of late, we see them as pretty clear favorites for the win on Wednesday. You can back Torino’s 2-0 victory at the odds of 7.00
