Torino took advantage of the easier schedule to move into safe waters with three wins in the last five Serie A rounds. Can they use the momentum to snatch another important three-pointer on Sunday afternoon against mid-table Hellas Verona?
Torino have been struggling to break Parma’s resistance on Monday evening, but winger Mergim Vojvoda found a way to break the deadlock just after the hour-mark and gift his team’s a massive three-pointer.
Il Toro are now three points adrift of the red zone after winning three of the last five league fixtures.
Nevertheless, the job is by no means done as Davide Nicola’s men still have to dig deep to avoid further complications in the relegation scrap.
Sunday’s trip to Verona is thus of a huge significance for the visitors who could well use more salvation points, especially with fixtures against Milan and Lazio upcoming.
The good news for the visitors is that they will be playing a non-motivated opposition here. Hellas Verona have been on the beach for a while now.
The lack of proper motivation has caused a significant drop in their form as Verona took no more than one point from the last five league rounds.
It came last weekend when the outfit led by Ivan Juric shared the spoils with Spezia on the home patch.

This is why we see the Under 2.5 goals FT as by far the best betting option from this match. You can back it at the odds of 1.90. As for the outcome, we are tempted by the 2.37 odds offered for Torino’s victory knowing that the hosts lost four and drew one of the last five outings.
