Torino is welcoming Roma to Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino in round 38 of the Italian Serie A. Torino has been in great form, they have lost only 1 of their last 8 games, and they are now in 10th place. Roma is on the Europa League spot right now, but they could lose it if they don’t get a positive result in this game.
Torino has been outstanding on the defensive end this season with only 38 conceded goals, and their offense has been decent with 46 scored goals o far, but it wasn’t enough for Torino to qualify for Europe. In their last game, Torino has beaten Verona on the road, and they have a lot of experience beating the big teams in Italy. Belotti is leading Torino with 8 scored goals, while Brekalo added 7 goals. There are quite a few injuries in Torino right now, but the season is over, and their position won’t change by much if they lose in this game. Overall, I think this was a successful season for Torino, they have had some great results, and they are hoping for an even better next season.
Roma hasn’t been at their best lately, they have won only 1 of their last 7 games, but they have qualified for the Conference League finals. That game is scheduled for next week, and Roma will be playing against Feyenoord. If Roma wins that competition, they will qualify for the Europa League, but there is always the risk of not winning the competition, which is why Roma has to get a positive result here. Roma is now in 6th place with 60 points, they have scored 56 goals, but their defense has been a bit sloppy with 43 conceded goals. This is the last game of the season for Roma in Serie A, and they have had the team to do so much more than 6th place, but even that is in danger for Roma. Abraham is the leading goalscorer for Roma with 15 goals, while Pellegrini added 8 goals and 6 assists. Mkhitaryan and Smalling are both injured, while Zaniolo is questionable. I think we can expect a bit of a mixed lineup from Roma here, but as I said, they need a positive result.
The trends are heavily on Roma’s side, but Torino is in much better form. Torino has nothing to pay for, but with this being the home game for them, they want to end this season with a win. I will avoid the sides, and I will take goals.
