Torino were so close to beating city rivals Juventus last weekend. However, their back line surrendered under the pressure of Old Lady’s strikers and conceded two late goals. The Bulls are once again looking for a recovery win, this time at home venue against Udinese on Saturday afternoon.

Overall, their form has been improving week by week, by standings are still very alarming. Torino are in the relegation zone after collecting only six points from ten games. Their opponents are not having a great time either. The Zebras are four points and four positions ahead. Interestingly, bookies labelled hosts as underdogs at 2.90 odds.

Torino vs Udinese Head-to-head

Even though Marco Giampaolo was appointed as head manager four months ago, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him sacked soon unless results improve. Andrea Belotti has been single-handedly carrying the whole team throughout whole season with seven goals and one assist. There was only one occasion when Torino both played well and managed to achieve victory this season. That happened in early November against Genoa (won 2-1). Truth be told, recent schedule has been very hard for them, facing Inter Milan, Juventus and Roma in two weeks.

As for their opposition, Udinese have caused a massive upset in the last Serie A match by beating Lazio in the capital 3-1 FT. Arslan, Pussetto and Forestieri were the goalscorers. That was sixth point for Zebras in the last two weeks. Despite that win, away days have been rough for this them, so we see good value in backing hosts to recover and claim three points.
