Torino is welcoming Inter Milan in round 21 of Italian Serie A.
Torino is in really bad form at the moment despite having great team with some really good players, something is just not clicking. Torino has won only 1 of their last 7 games but they are holding 12th spot with some pretty good chances at European League next season, but only if they turn the tables. Andrea Belotti is the top goal scorer for Torino with 7 goals and is expected to lead his team in this game. Pauliho is only player who will miss this game because of red card suspension. Torino’s home record is 4 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses with average of more than one conceded goal per game.
Inter is a completely different story in that even though they don’t play attractive and enjoyable soccer, they get the job done. Inter has not lost in their last 7 games and are holding 3rd spot just 7 points behind Napoli. Mauro Icardi is the captain and top goal scorer of this team with 9 goals in 17 matches. Inter likes to play patient soccer, where they try to be in control for most of the game. Inter’s away record is not great, 5 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses with 14 scored and 10 conceded goals. Vrsaljko is listed as doubtful, while Keita Balde will not play. Inter is being pressured by Milan who are only 6 points away and if they want to stay in the battle for Champions League they need to keep this streak alive as long as possible.
In the last 4 matches these two teams have played Torino has won one, while 3 ended with a tie. Given the fact that Torino is in a slump right now, both defensively and offensively I’m giving the edge to Inter who needs a win to keep morale high and undefeated streak alive.
