Torino vs Udinese: prediction for the Serie A fixture
The season did not start very well for Torino. Despite having a very powerful roster and Ivan Juric as head coach, the Bulls are yet to join the fight for European club competition. Before matchday 13, Torino are 12th in the Serie A standings with 14 points in the asset, closer to the relegation zone than to Top-6.
The Bulls look especially poor away. After losing to Napoli (0:1) and AC Milan (0:1) at home, they clearly hoped to interrupt the losing streak in the game against Spezia. However, Spezia fended off all of Torino's attempts to score, and got a narrow win of 0:1. Today Torino will be looking to bounce back and strengthen their standings.
Udinese also could have performed much better in the first rounds, but they are only 14th in the standings. Luca Gotti's team scored 14 points in 12 games and have a five-point handicap against the relegation zone.
In the last round, Le Zebrette broke their winless streak of eight games. Udinese got a hard-earned victory against Sassuolo (3:2) at home. In the last minutes of the game, they were left shorthanded following the red card of Jean-Victor Makengo, but managed to defend the victory.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 6 games that Torino won.
This bet played in the last 2 games of Torino.
The forward scored in the last 3 head-to-head games.
Torino might be very weak away, but at home they demonstrate exciting attacking football and regularly earn points. Udinese lost 8 of the last 9 fixtures, and we are not convinced that they can put up a fight against the Bulls.
Our prediction -Torino to win
Torino looked great in the last home games and confidently defeated Sampdoria and Genoa. Udinese lost three out of four games in Turin, but we don't think they will be crushed here - after all, they are in better form than Samp and Genoa.
Our second bet - Torino to win by 1 goal
