Torino is hosting Udinese at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in round 27 of Italian Serie A.
Torino is a good team, but they have been in terrible form and they haven’t won any of their last 8 games. With only 28 points, 29 scored goals, and 46 conceded goals, Torino is in 15th place in the standings, only 3 points away from the relegation zone. Andrea Belotti has scored 9 goals for Torino this season, while Berenguer has added 5 goals. Ansaldi and Verdi have each added 3 assists. Baselli and Verdi are injured, while Ansaldi is questionable. In their latest Serie A game against Parma at home, Torino was the better team with 51% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 78% of the correct passes. Torino deserved a win here, and they would have got it if they scored a penalty kick in the 48th minute, but they missed, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Torino has had a few good seasons, but this one is not going well for them and Torino is in danger of being relegated unless of course, Torino starts playing much better soccer in the attacking end.
Before the season was paused, Udinese has had 4 draws in a row, while they played a friendly against Brescia last week, which Udinese won 2-0. Udinese is the second-worst attacking team in Serie A with only 21 scored goals, while they conceded 37 goals. Even with a massive lack of offense, Udinese is outside the relegation zone, in 14th place with 28 points. In their last Serie A game against Fiorentina before the season was paused, Udinese has had 43% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 82% of the correct passes. This match ended in a 0-0 draw. Okaka and De Paul have each scored 5 goals for Udinese this season, while Lasagna added 4 goals. Seko Fofana has added 4 assists. Sebastian Prodl is the only injured player for Udinese. Udinese is a solid team that can do so much better, but even with the coaching change, Udinese’s form is declining, and they can’t get any consistency in their game. Udinese is still close to the relegation zone, but I think they have enough quality over other teams in the relegation zone and I see Udinese in Serie A next season as well.
Torino hasn’t won any of their last 8 games, while Udinese hasn’t won any of their last 5 away games. The trends are pretty evenly split between Torino and Udinese. Torino played a good game last week, and I think they will finally get a win here against the weak Udinese team.
