Match Date: 06 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Angelo Massimino


Despite losing its last 3 away matches, Torino is keen on securing a victory against the rock-bottom, Catania. Torino just clinched narrow victory against Cagliari to catapult its rank in the Serie A table. The club is now the 10th best club in Italy’s top-flight league.


There is no doubt that Torino is one of the clubs that has shown a tremendous improvement. After nearly falling out last season, it has successfully penetrated the Italian football elite. With a renewed confidence and a new set of aspirations to fulfill, it seemed that Torino’s struggling away form will less likely affect their upcoming performance. It is not because the club will be dealing with a minnow. Rather, it is more of being true to the vision of “creating a strong platform next season. “


Torino has only won twice in its last 6 matches. But definitely, its current form, it has a better form than that of Catania, which is winless in its last 6 encounters.


Catania can be carefully considered as Torino’s opposite. The club finished on the 8th spot last season but has failed to maintain a good performance. Currently, the club struggles for survival. Yet, this kind of struggle can be a potent cure to Catania’s lackluster display and is something that Torino should be wary of.


On a closer look, Catania still, has high chances of moving out of the relegation zone. Technically speaking, it only needs 6 points to return to safety. And with a few more matches, this is indeed, possible.


Torino should watch out. Although they are the top pick of sports betting sites such as 12BET, Catania may pull off an upset.
