Hellas Verona vs Torino: Prediction
The Scaligers slipped to 11th position in the Serie A standings following their back-to-back defeats to Roma and Atalanta. After conceding just eleven goals in first thirteen matches, Hellas Verona shipped six in their last two outings vs Top 4 contenders.
They need to rediscover their defensive prowess that made them dangerous early in the season. Ivan Juric’s will look for a rebound win against revived Granata on Sunday.
Verona have recorded three wins, two draws and three losses at Marc’Antonio Bentegodi this season, scoring and conceding goals at the same rate – 0.88 per match.
Several players will be evaluated before the game – Kumbula, Badu, Bessa, Tupta and Salcedo. Dawidowicz is banned for this one after his 2nd red card of the season.
Torino are in solid form, having won three of their last four Serie A matches, beating the likes of Brescia (4-0), Genoa (0-1) and, most recently, Fiorentina (2-1). As a result, they moved to 9th place on the ladder, 8 points behind 6th-placed Bergamese.
Their latest league outing vs Viola was quite even, but Walter Mazzarri’s men were more efficient as they converted two of their four goal-scoring chances, and they did it without their star man – Andrea Belotti.
The Granata logged three wins and four losses away from Turin’s Olimpico. They have an average of 1.43 goals scored per game, whilst conceding slightly more – 1.57 per tie.
Iago Falque, Lyanco are surely out with injuries, Andrea Belloti is doubtful.
The momentum is clearly on Torino’s side and I’m willing to back them in DNB market.
I’m won’t consider a plain away win as I have trust issues with them and Verona are usually hard to beat, especially at home.
I’ll also pick under 2.5 goals – less than three goals have been scored in six of the eight Scaligers’ games at Marc’Antonio Bentegodi and the guests have kept two clean sheets on the trot away from home. If they keep Verona at bay in this one, we should be fine.
