After almost losing its Serie A status last season, Torino is definitely up for a stronger finish. However, its ambitions to further climb the table is in danger of being temporarily halted as they face the equally aggressive club, Lazio.

 

If one has to consider Torino and Lazio’s previous matches, Lazio definitely gets the edge. It will easily take the online betting’s favorite role for Torino has only won once against them within the course of their last 6 previous matches.

 

Yet, a comparison of their present form suggests that this time around, Torino has higher chances of dominating their upcoming encounter.

 

In terms of their team form, Torino has been successful in 4 of its last 6 matches, whilst Lazio can only brag 3 victories.

 

Il Toro also ranks better. The latter is safely positioned at the 7th spot of the Serie A table while Lazio occupies the 9th spot. This alone is enough to give Torino’s confidence a boost when they visit Stadio Olimpico and if this is not enough, they will be bringing with them a handful of inspiration generated from their 3 consecutive victories.

 

Lazio, however, will try to counter Il Toro’s attacks with their very own scoring prowess. The host has installed a record of scoring an average of 2 goals during its last 3 matches.

 

Surprisingly, Torino also shares the same scoring statistics with Lazio. Given this aspect at hand, it does not take rocket science to see that Il Toro, indeed, has the upper hand in this particular match.

 

Prediction: Torino
