Match Date: 21 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Olimpico de Torino

 

Torino is in dire need of improvement after falling into Sampdoria’s hands last week. The squad has not won a single match and they cannot afford to lose another one. Its upcoming encounter will not be easy since they are pitted against Hellas Verona. The winning momentum still lingers within Hellas Verona’s camp after stealing the spotlight from Palermo.

 

The contenders

Torino

A clean sheet from Sampdoria subjected Torino to a humiliating loss. They were unable to respond well to the challenge and this pushed them at the brink of reaching the relegation zone.

 

As mentioned, Torino remains winless. It has managed to force a stalemate against Inter during the season’s kick-off and somehow, the single point that it obtained temporarily prevents them from hitting the rock bottom part of the Serie A table.

 

Hellas Verona

The online betting favorite, Hellas Verona did a spectacular job of turning the odds into its favor during the Palermo encounter. Luca Toni’s show of grace under pressure inspired the squad to be more aggressive in snatching the victory and true enough, their efforts paid off.
The said win also propelled them to the 4th spot of the Serie A table.

 

Possible head turners

Watch out for the Mexican international, Rafael Marquez. El Tri’s team captain has been very efficient in guarding his post, which readily increases the club’s winning possibilities.

 

Prediction

Torino 1-2 Hellas Verona
