Spal is hosting Torino at Stadio Paolo Mazza in round 36 in Italian Serie A.
Spal still hasn’t won a game since the season restart, and I don’t think they will. With only 19 points won this season, Spal is the weakest team in Serie A, and they are getting relegated. Offensively, Spal is the worst team in the league with only 25 scored goals, while they conceded massive 70 goals, but surprisingly, they are not the worst defensive team in Serie A. in their latest Serie A game against Roma at home, Spal has had 45% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, and solid 86% of the correct passes. Spal was able to score a goal in this game, but their defense was bad again, and Spal has lost this match 1-6. Petagna is Spal’s leading goal scorer with 12 goals, while Valori added another 3 goals. Dabo and Valdifiori both have 3 assists. Berisha is injured, while Bonifazi is suspended because of the red card. Castro, Floccari, and Sala are all still questionable for this match. There was never any doubt that Spal is the weakest team in Serie A, and I think it’s better for them to get relegated to Serie B where they will win some game and be more competitive.
Torino has been struggling since the restart, but all they need to secure their Serie A spot is 1 more point. Since the restart, Torino has 3 wins, 2 draws, and 5 losses, and their defense was terrible. In their last 10 games, Torino has conceded 18 goals, while scoring 14 goals, but the encouraging news is that Torino was able to keep two clean sheets in their last 10 games. With 38 points, Torino is in 16th place in the standings, and they have scored 42 goals so far this season while conceding 63 goals. Belotti has scored 16 goals for Torino so far this season, while Zaza and Berenguer both added 5 goals. Simone Verdi has added 5 assists. Baselli and Izzo are both injured, while De Silvestri is still questionable for this match. In their latest Serie A game against Verona at home, Torino was the weaker team with 43% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 71% of the correct passes. Not many teams are forced to defend against Verona, but Torino was, but fortunately for them, they were able to score 1 goal, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Torino is a good team, but something is rotten in this club. I know that Torino can do more, but even with their bad soccer as of late, I believe that Torino will stay in Serie A next season as well.
Torino has never beaten Spal on the road, but since Spal is the weakest team in the league and they are getting relegated, I can see Torino winning this match.
