This highly anticipated Coppa Italia quarter-final match between Fiorentina and Torino takes place on Wednesday. They should both be fired up and, what with a place in the semi-finals at stake, it could well be a real cracker from these two.
Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Fiorentina v Torino can be found here (inc. the best betting odds).
Fiorentina prepare for this fixture following a 1-1 Serie A drawn match versus Lazio.

It’s been all too rare in recent games where Fiorentina have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Fiorentina have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 6 goals along the way.
In their last fixture, Torino drew 2-2 in the Serie A match with Empoli.

Over the course of 5 of the past six games involving Torino, a comparatively low number of goals have gone in between them and opposing teams. The overall average goals scored per game during that period works out to a mere 1.83, with the average goals for Il Toro standing at 1. That pattern won’t necessarily be sustained here, of course.

Team News: Fiorentina
Gaetano Castrovilli (Disrupted Calf Muscle) and Riccardo Sottil (Herniated Disc) are not available for Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Italiano.
Team News: Torino
Torino boss Ivan Jurić has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Pietro Pellegri (Biceps femoris muscle injury), Koffi Djidji (Nose surgery), Valentino Lazaro (Sideband tear in the knee) and David Zima (Meniscal Injury) are those who can’t be considered. Koffi Djidji will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We believe that Torino should be able to find the net against this Fiorentina team, although that might not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We think that it’s going to be a 2-1 winning score for Fiorentina at full-time. We’ll have to see what happens.
