Hellas Verona will be wanting a better result here following the 1-3 Serie A defeat last time out to AC Milan.
In that match, Hellas Verona had 47% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player to score for Hellas Verona was Davide Faraoni (38'). On the other side, AC Milan had 18 shots on goal with 8 on target. Sandro Tonali (45', 50') and Alessandro Florenzi (86') scored for AC Milan.
It has been seldom in recent times where Hellas Verona have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Hellas Verona have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 8 goals in the process. Such a trend might not be carried forward into this match, though.
Analysis of their past results shows that Hellas Verona:
- have not beaten Torino in their last 5 league matches.
- have not won at home in their last 2 league matches.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of SSC Napoli in Serie A competition, Torino and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

- have not beaten Hellas Verona in games played away from home for the previous 4 league matches. Not good.
- remain undefeated by Hellas Verona when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their previous 4 away league matches.

Team News: Hellas Verona
Diego Coppola (Distortion of the ankle), Alessandro Berardi (Hand fracture) and Ivor Pandur (Shoulder Injury) will be missing for Hellas Verona gaffer Igor Tudor. Davide Faraoni will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
In our view, Hellas Verona will possibly use a 3-4-2-1 system this time, beginning the first half with Lorenzo Montipo, Nicolo Casale, Koray Guenter, Federico Ceccherini, Fabio Depaoli, Adrien Tameze, Ivan Ilic, Darko Lazovic, Kevin Lasagna, Gianluca Caprari and Giovanni Simeone.
Team News: Torino
Torino manager Ivan Jurić has not got a full squad to pick from. Stephane Singo (Surgery), Antonio Sanabria (Muscular problems), Simone Zaza (Lumbago), Alessandro Buongiorno (Disrupted Calf Muscle) and Mohamed Fares (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play. Stephane Singo cannot play in this game through suspension.
We’re of the thinking that Il Toro will likely utilise a 3-4-2-1 lineup, giving starts to Etrit Berisha, Armando Izzo, David Zima, Ricardo Rodriguez, Ola Aina, Sasa Lukic, Samuele Ricci, Mergim Vojvoda, Dennis Praet, Josip Brekalo and Andrea Belotti.
In this match, Torino have the firepower to score a goal against this Hellas Verona side, however it isn’t expected to be as many as they’ll concede.
We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 win for Hellas Verona at the end of this one. Expecting it to be very competitive.
