Torino vs Fiorentina
Italy Serie A
Date: Friday, 29 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, Turin.
Both Turin and Fiorentina have struggled for consistency throughout the season. They have a total of seven wins before they met in the 20th round at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
The hosts cannot afford to drop out if they are sitting right on the edge of the red zone. So far, they have had no more than two wins in 19 Serie A rounds.
The start of the year brought nothing new for Il Toro fans, who saw their side fail to find the net in three consecutive games before the 2-2 draw last weekend at Benevento.
If Turin played hot and cold, what should we say for Fiorentina? Viola suffered a disastrous 6-0 loss to Napoli two weeks ago but found her way to recover against league fighters Crotone on Saturday.
Giacomo Bonaventura and Dusan Vlahovic contributed to a 2-1 win, while Franck Ribery also showed a decent performance.
Turin against Fiorentina head to head
Fiorentina was much more successful in the history of direct encounters with Il Toro. Viola won 17 and lost only 7 out of 36 matches with Turin.
Fiorentina will draw after two straight wins against Il Toro. The run includes the 1-0 win this season in September at the Artemio Franchi Stadium.
Only in one of the last six head-to-head encounters have three or more goals been scored.
Prediction of Turin versus Fiorentina
If we ignore last weekend’s draw with Benevento, Turin has been fighting for goals lately. You have not scored a goal in three consecutive games. Knowing that only one of the last six head-to-head games has scored at least three goals, we’re tempted to get the FT picks for under 2.5 goals at odds of 1.72.
The game has a huge impact on both outfits, especially Turin, which is likely to fall into danger here with a loss. Viola has not scored a goal in three of the league’s last five away games. We see this as a low score tie. More daring tipsters can choose the 1:1 score with odds of 6.00.
