Torino vs Sudtirol
Date: Thursday, 6 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).
Torino climbed up to the 6th place in the Serie A ladder with a 2-1 comeback victory over Genoa on Sunday. Il Toro had a massive help from genoa’s midfielder Romulo on the occasion as the Italian was sent off just before the half hour mark. Il Rossoblu, however, were the team to open up the scoring nine minutes from half time, but Christian Ansaldi and Andrea Belotti quickly turned it around for the team led by Walter Mazzarri on the occasion.
Torino will thus come into mid-week Coppa Italia clash high on confidence as they have a nice opportunity to go beyond the fourth round with an easy victory over the third class outfit Sudtirol. The visitors hold the 9th place in their respective Serie C group. They drew as many as 7 of 14 games so far in the season and they won only one of eight previous affairs in all competitions.

Torino vs Sudtirol: Prediction
Torino were pretty efficient in front of the home fans so far in the season. Each of last five matches they played on the home patch saw goals scored at both ends. This is why we find the value in backing three or more goals at the odds of 1.66 here.
Sudtirol may have been tough to break down at the start of the season, both each of last two games they played in Serie C saw the BTTS option “coming in”. They saw off Vicenza Virtus 2-4 on the road before sharing the spoils in a 1-1 home draw to Pordenone last weekend.
The gulf in quality between the two teams is just massive and we expect a one-sided affair from the very get go. You can have Torino to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 1.80.
