Torino and Udinese

Match Date: 27 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino


Torino’s head honcho, Giampiero Ventura blamed “anxiety” for conceding 2 points against Lazio, which resulted to an even steven finish that made their Europa League campaign even harder than ever.


On the other hand, Francesco Guidolin is satisfied with the formation changes he implemented during the match against Napoli. The encounter ended in an exciting stalemate and a bucket of inspiration that could be crucial when they meet the online betting favorite, Torino.


According to Ventura, the anxiety prevented his team from protecting the ball whilst Lazio took the opportunity to turn the odds into their favor. Disappointments became even more evident as the result halted their ambitions of making it to the Europa League.


But then again, Torino can still consider itself lucky for they have the overt advantage in their clash against Udinese. The host is a strong force when playing in its own territory. It won its last 3 matches at Olimpico Grande Torino and installed a record of scoring an average of 2 goals during its last 4 matches. It does not take rocket science to understand that they are the top pick of different football betting tips.


Yet, the Granatas cannot afford to relax. Udinese’s formation change generated good results. This forces them (Torino) to veer away from their usual approach of going against Udinese. The latter’s performance this season may not be that impressive, but this does not erase the fact that Udinese remains as a strong force to reckon with.


Prediction:  Torino
