Torino vs Spezia
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
Even though they are still in the relegation zone, many experts believe (so do we) that it’s just a matter of time when Torino will make progress towards the middle of the table.
The Bulls have shown so much progress in the last 45 days, but also faced many top tier teams.
The upcoming schedule is getting easier now. Team has a decent chance to secure 3rd victory of the season at home venue against Spezia this Saturday.
Visitors have caused two big upsets in the last ten days, managing to beat Napoli and Sampdoria so it would be such a rookie mistake to underestimate them. In terms of the odds, hosts are favorites priced at 2.00.
Torino vs Spezia Head-to-head
Considering this is Spezia’s first season ever among the elite, it is not surprising to find out this will be their premiere clash versus Torino in club’s history.
Torino vs Spezia Prediction
Torino FC were unfortunate enough to face AC Milan twice in the last seven days. They were easily defeated last Saturday in Serie A at Guiseppe Meazza 2-0. Their resistance on Tuesday in Coppa Italia was so much better, but eventually Rossoneri advanced to the next stage after a penalty shootout.
The current standings see them on 18th place with 12 points from 17 games. The best performance of the season was seen on 3rd January against Parma at Ennio Tardini. Back then Bulls took a convincing 3-0 win. Once again, the most productive player is Andrea Belotti with nine goals and four assists.
As for the opposition, Spezia caused one of the biggest surprises in this campaign. Even though they had one man sent off in the second half, squad still managed to beat Napoli at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium. That win and three points against Sampdoria quickly propelled them out of the relegation zone.
Still, we think it’s just a matter of time when Spezia’s form is going to decline a bit. Hosts are motivated and have quality to win this match.
