AS Roma vs Torino Prediction & Betting tips
The new year of Serie A is ushered in by AS Roma and Torino. They also played against each other in the very first round of play, when AS Roma managed to escape. Justin Kluivert gave in the last minute the assist on Dzeko who scored from an awkward angle, he made the only goal in that match.
AS Roma ended a not too good first half of the season with two victories. It had two very bad periods when it was questionable whether trainer Eusebio di Francesco was allowed to stay on. The start of the season was not to write home, because five times in a row was not won so the team from Rome was only fourteenth. Hereafter, Giallorossi scribbled slowly until a bad series followed again at the end of November. Udinese, Real Madrid, Plzen and Juventus were lost and equal against Inter and Cagliari. Before the winter break, the team managed to satisfy the fans with victories over Sassuolo and Parma, which meant that the Romans were only two points away from the fourth place that Champions League gave football.
Last Monday, AS Roma played for the cup against third division Virtus Entella and as expected, the Romans had no problems. After only one minute of play, Patrik Schick made the opening goal and just after half time, he scored the 3-0 on a pass from Justin Kluivert. The Czech finally starts to find the net with Roma, just before the winter break he was also very accurate in the competition. Meanwhile, the rumors that his competitor in the attack Edin Dzeko is coveted by Everton, while in Rome with only two goals in fifteen league matches can not live up to expectations.
Torino did good business in the first half of the season, losing only four of the nineteen games and being only two points away from the seventh place that European football can bring. One of the most important factors in that race is Andrea Belotti, who made seven of the 29 goals this season. He is already a lot better than last season in which he scored ten times in total, but does not come close to his top year in which he scored 26 times and many top teams hoped to take over. In December, Torino won against Sudtirol (Coppa Italia) and Empoli and played against three teams from the left row. The only defeat in this good month for the winter break was against Juventus, even in that match Torino was not completely out of luck and lost only 0-1.
Last weekend Torino got the first real showdown in the cup at home against Fiorentina. Although Torino played nice football, almost all good chances were for the away team. It was only 87 minutes before talented Chiesa opened the score on behalf of Fio, after which he also made the 0-2 in the injury time. A weak start of the year for the team from Turin and a just victory for Fiorentina.
