Torino is hosting Roma at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in round 37 in Italian Serie A.
Torino has been struggling massively this season, but the good news for Torino is that they can’t end up in the relegation zone anymore this season, which means their Serie A spot for next season is secured. Torino has one of the weakest defenses in the league with 64 conceded goals, while their offense just wasn’t enough to compensate. Torino has scored 43 goals in 36 games so far this season. With 39 points, Torino is in 16th place. Belotti has scored 16 goals for Torino this season, while Zaza and Berenguer both have 5 goals. Simone Verdi added 5 assists. Baselli is injured, while De Silvestri is still questionable for this game. Torino hasn’t won any of their last 3 Serie A games, during which they scored 2 goals while conceding 4 goals. In their last Serie A match against Spal on the road, Torino has had 45% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, and 84% of the correct passes. Torino was the better team in this match, and they had the 0-1 lead, until the 79th minute when Spal tied the game, and the final score was 1-1. It’s a good thing that the season is coming to an end and that Torino has no pressure for the last two games, otherwise, I’m not sure if they would be able to secure their spot.
Roma is on a 6-game streak without a loss, and with one more win in their last 2 games, Roma will secure their Europa League spot. Roma is now in 5th place in the standings with 64 points, 4 points more than Milan in 6th place. With 71 scored goals, Roma is one of the best offensive teams in Serie A this season, while their defense has been decent with 48 conceded goals. In their last Serie A match against Fiorentina at home, Roma was the better team with 59% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 86% of accurate passes. Roma has won this match 2-1 with two goals from the penalty spot. Dzeko is Roma’s best player with 15 goals and 6 assists, while Mkhitaryan added another 9 goals. Pellegrini has 9 assists so far. Santon, Mirante, Under, and Pellegrini are all injured, while Ibanez is still questionable. Roma is playing against Sevilla in the Europa League next week, which is why it’s important for them to stay in good form on both ends. With a few more additions to the team in the offseason, I could see Roma being a threat to the top four in the next season because everything Roma is doing is good, and they are constantly improving.
Roma needs a win here to secure their Europa League spot, and they are the better team, in a better form. I think Roma gets the job done in this one for another 3 points.
