Fewer than three goals per game were seen in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Torino have been involved. With regard to the goal split during this period, their opponents scored a total of 5 while Il Toro managed a tally of 6.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Torino:
- are undefeated in their last 2 home league matches.
- have not won at home in their last 10 matches in the league. They will be so desperate to end this run.
Spezia come into this clash after a 2-1 Serie A win with the downing of Sampdoria in their previous game.
In that match, Spezia managed 56% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 4 on target. For Spezia, goals were scored by Claudio Terzi (20') and M'Bala Nzola (61'). Sampdoria got 6 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Antonio Candreva (24') scored for Sampdoria.
Spezia have attacked well in the lead-up to this encounter, having scored 8 times in their last 6 matches. Having said that, Spezia can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same outings. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen whether that pattern might be maintained in this game.
Team News: Torino
Torino boss Marco Giampaolo has a full complement, with no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from. Tomás Rincón will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Spezia
Spezia boss Vincenzo Italiano has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Simone Bastoni (Corona virus), Gennaro Acampora (Corona virus), Matteo Ricci (Corona virus), Federico Mattiello (Unknown Injury), Jeroen Zoet (Groin Injury) and Elio Capradossi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re envisaging that Spezia will have a tough ask to hit the back of the net against this Torino side who we think will likely get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore predicting a very competitive game with a 1-0 winning score for Torino at the end of this one.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
