Torino is hosting Brescia at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in round 31 in Italian Serie A.
Torino is in a bad form, dating back to early February, and in their last 3 games, Torino has conceded 10 goals, while scoring only 4 goals. Since the restart, Torino has 3 losses, 1 draw, and only 1 win. Torino is in 16th place in the standings with only 31 points, and with 8 games left in the season, the danger of Torino getting into the relegation zone is real. In their most recent game in Serie A against Juventus on the road, Torino has had 49% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, and 89% of the correct passes. Torino didn’t stand a chance in this game and they lost 4-1. Offensively, Torino has been one of the weakest teams in Serie A this season with only 34 scored goals, while they conceded 56 goals and they are one of the weakest defensive teams in the league. Belotti has been playing in good form and he has scored 13 goals for Torino, but he doesn’t have enough support from his teammates because the next top goal scorer for Torino is Berengauer with 5 goals. Baseli is injured, while Izzo is suspended because oy the yellow cards. I don’t know what to think of Torino. This forced break didn’t do any good or bad to Torino, they are just a weak team that needs to make some changes before the next season, whether it’s going to be in Serie A or Serie B, we will see soon.
Brescia has won their last game, and with those three points, Brescia now has 21 points and is in 19th place. Theoretically, Brescia still has a chance of getting out of the relegation zone, but I’m not sure they can. Brescia has scored only 27 goals this season, the second worse in Serie A, while conceding 58 goals, which is among the worse defenses in the league. Donnarumma is Brescia’s top goalscorer with 7 goals, while Balotelli added 5 goals. Tonali added 5 assists. Cistana and Bisoli are both injured and will not be in the lineup. In their latest Serie A game against Hellas Verona, Brescia has had only 36% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and 76% of the correct passes. Brescia’s defense really stepped up in this match, which gave the boost to their offense, and Brescia has won this game 2-0. Brescia could get out of the relegation zone if they can win some more games, but looking at their schedule, it will be tough for Brescia to get what they need. There are no easy games for Brescia, only hard and extremely hard games, and four of their last 8 games will be extremely hard.
The trends are split here, but Torino hasn’t lost any of their last 5 home games against Brescia. Torino is the better team here and I think they will end their losing streak against one of the weakest teams in Serie A.
