A win will keep the trend going for the Maroons

The trend of losing and winning every other game since round eight continued for Torino as they lost to AS Roma in the last round. Surely, IL Toro are having a much better season than the last one when they had nine points at this stage. With 17 points already bagged this term, Torino will be looking to stay away from the lower positions as they did during all of the last campaign.

Comparatively, the Maroons won seven games all season last term to this term’s five. Certainly, the biggest difference is in defense as coach Ivan Juric’s team let in on average a goal a game. Moreover, Juric must be happy with his team’s attacking performance in recent home games. To point out, Torino scored eight goals in their last three games at the Olimpico.

Empoli searching for points in Turin

Serie B champions of last season Empoli can be proud of their performances so far in the Serie A this term. However, their away form is much better than when they’re playing at home. To illustrate, the Azzurri are fifth in the table when it comes to away results. Moreover, away wins over Juventus and Sassuolo among their four victories on the road make them a very dangerous team.

Similar to their opponents, one of Empoli’s strengths is their defense, especially when playing away. In fact, coach Andreazzoli’s team have a better scoring and defensive record on the road (10-7) than at home (11-19). As a result, coming to Turin, Empoli will feel they can play for points. And their confidence was boosted after a fine home win over Fiorentina in the last round.

Torino vs Empoli Prediction

Despite the bookies favoring Torino to win with odds of 1.76, we think it will be a close match. As we saw in the preview, Empoli can be very tricky when playing on the road.

Looking at the goals market, over two goals are expected with an odds of 1.41. Surely that is probable with Torino’s scoring rate and Empoli scoring seven times in their last three away games which all saw over 2.5 goals

Also, over 2.5 goals were scored in Torino’s last three home matches and in five of their seven all season at the Olimpico. Hence, according to the stats over 2.5 goals has a 71% chance.

To summarize, we will back over 2.5 goals for this match due to the scoring nature of both teams, Also the fact that both teams want to get maximum points from this fixture.
