Team Form

Torino

Torino’s meeting with their local rival, Juventus ended in a bitter defeat when Carlos Tevez nailed the latter’s sole goal in the match.

 

With the said defeat, Torino also fell to the 8th spot of the Serie A table. Aside from that, they will also miss the presence of Emiliano Moretti, who suffered a medial meniscus tear during the said encounter. He will be joining Salvatore Masiello, who was already sidelined prior to the Turin derby.

 

Torino’s performance has been a satisfactory one. They have won thrice, lost twice and drew once in their last six (6) matches.

 

Sampdoria

Similar to Torino, Sampdoria also need to deal with a defeat, which caused them to slip to the mid-table. The club had a hard time netting goals as the determined Rosonneris kept them at bay.

 

Sampdoria’s encounter against AC Milan caused them their 2nd consecutive defeat. They are yet to recover from the trouncing received from AS Roma, but to no avail. The Rossoneri loss was rather predictable.

 

Compared to Torino, it is evident that Sampdoria’s form struggles. They have only managed to clinch two (2) victories within their last 6 matches. The club now sits at the 13th spot of the Serie A table.

 

Prediction: Torino

Torino still has the upper hand in the said match, given that they have a better form. It may not be an easy encounter for them due to the injuries of their key players, but they will manage to overcome such feat.
