Torino is welcoming Inter to Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in round 29 of the Italian Serie A. Torino has been struggling a lot as of late, but they are still in a solid position in the standings. Inter is still very close to the top of the table, and now that they got knocked out of the Champions League, they might have a chance at taking it back.
Torino is in 11th place with 34 points, they are far away from the relegation zone, but they won’t make it to Europe this season. Offensively, Torino is an average team with 33 scored goals, but their defense is outstanding with 28 conceded goals in 27 games. After this game, Torino has a few easier games coming up, and that will be the chance for them to get back on the positive side. The injury list is getting shorter for Torino, and only Fares and Praet are on it right now. Brekalo has scored 6 goals for Torino so far, while Sanabria has added 5 goals. Torino hasn’t won any of their last 6 games, but they are a good team with solid defense, and an offense that can create chances and score goals, and I think they will be even better next season.
Inter was playing against Liverpool in the Champions League earlier this week, and they did get a win, but it wasn’t good enough. Inter has scored in the second half, but shortly after they have conceded a red card, and they weren’t able to score another goal. In Serie A, Inter is now in 2nd place with 58 points, which is 5 points less than Milan at the top, but Inter has 2 games in hand. With 14 scored goals so far, Martinez is the leading goalscorer for Inter, while Dzeko has added 12 goals. Barella has added 9 assists. De Vrij is the only injured player for Inter. Unfortunately for Inter, they got knocked out of the Champions League, but they are still on the hunt for 2 trophies, Serie A and Coppa Italia where they will face Milan in the second leg of the semifinals soon. Inter is a very good team, well balanced on both ends, and they have a great coach who knows what he is doing. I think Inter has a bright future.
Torino hasn’t won any of their last 6 games, while Inter hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games. Torino is a solid team defensively, especially at home, and that could be a good thing because Inter is struggling with scoring goals lately. I will give this a shot with a first-half pick.
